I Want Tacos...

Hang on, before I even get started... "silencio su boca grande Pat!" I really want some tacos, burritos, beans (refried, black, soaked, dark, spicy, mixed), some salsa too... the green kind...

This place is literally covered in all sorts of taco shops. Like a kid in a candy store I am going nuts! Maybe all those months in Costa Rica has has my taste buds still covered in Lizano! Since I have been here I am day dreaming in Spanish, falling asleep to dreams of carne asada, and dancing to Chichi Peralta...


But there is a time and a place... pre race is no time (not for me anyway) to try out all the local hole-in-the-wall taco shops... but I am SO TEMPTED, there is a time and a place... POST RACE!

I know the other 18 pro women will be racing for the $$$, not this chica, I heard the finish line food is tacos, burritoes, corn, rice, and salsas! Voy por la comida!!!

Vicki (my SUPER home stay host) and her tri-team, "TexasIron", have an aid station on the run, it is loaded with margaritas (the Texans know how to throw down a shin dig, or aid station), maybe she can sneak me a burrito in there too...

Right about now (if today was tomorrow) I will be about to start the run... 13.1 miles to go hasta que me llena de tacos...
