I should not be left without adult supervision when I go to the grocery store.

I said that I was not going to buy peanut butter anymore.
I did. I also bought the peanut butter a little friend. Have you ever tried the two together on some bread or toast? 'Delightful' does not describe it justly.

For what it's worth, I bought the two 'most delicious spreads in the world' for my 8 hr race this weekend. A few small sandwiches throughout the day should help keep up my energy to place somewhere in the middle of the field. Lofty goals friends, lofty goals indeed.

Lot'sa bottles.

Since I am going to be racing unsupported I need to have all my bottles ready on the spot. I've got lots of bottles, but not enough to get me through 13 - 14 laps, so Curvy Butt was kind enough to lend me a few. I especially liked the ones that had mold growing in them. Chunky black bits should have some sort of protein or carbs in them, right?

I dug out the arnica cream that I took out to BC last summer to rub into my sore muscles that were caused by Sunday's race. It's a homeopathic remedy for sore muscles, bruising and pain relief. I'm not into the whole artsy, fartsy homeopathic - hippy - free love - voo doo - scene, but I will say that I notice a difference when I use it. Anything to get me recovered for this weekend. But to be honest, I think I'm pretty fugged from overtraining and hurt from the weekend. Who knows? Maybe I'll bounce back . . . . if not I've got a standing invite to ride the "Attack Spak" train from Peter.

My wife is into that whole artsy, fartsy homeopathic - hippy - free love - voo doo - scene ;)stuff and I'll swear by Arnica. I keep a bottle in my pack for those screaming moments of pain in the legs.

Also try warmed Hazelnut spread on your icecream with chopped peanuts. Its the Bomb!

It's the THC they put in that stuff.
Homeopathic stuff is really just a whole lotta stuff laced with THC. So, you feel great!

What the hell is wrong with a bit of peanut butter. Especially the natural stuff.
I eat 6 pieces of the stuff with honey every day.
Keeps me alive.
But, my teeth suffer.

I love my pb.
You're hanging around with too many bad people!
They will make you conform.
DoN't Do iT!

Goat, melted peanut butter on ice cream is also very very good!

Jeff, nobody said I shouldn't eat it, I was eating tooooooooo much of it! My favourite.

I am not a fan of homeopathy.. I believe that cream of yours (I have a tube too, love that stuff) is 10% arnica extract. I may be wrong, but I believe true homeopathic preparations are much more diluted than that (it doesn't make sense, but that's how it's claimed to work).

Even though that cream is distributed by a homeopathic company, I don't consider it to be a homeopathic cream, as much as a herbal cream which happens to contain a herb that has some anti inflammatory effect ( (er, rant over?)
