Running Hills Like a Vegetarian!

No, I'm not a vegetarian.

But, as you may remember, I'm almost to a full year as a pescatarian (yeah, that's fish, but no beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bunny, etc...) and so far, I'm pretty happy with it.

So yesterday, the big plan was to head to Bald Hill and work on my hill running in preparation for the Mac 50.

But first, nourishment!

So the R's family unit headed to First Burger in Albany. Never been there, but always wanted to try it. Unfortunately, they don't have a fish burger on the menu. I'll always take a fish burger over a veggie burger, every single time. But it was not to be.

OK, fine, so I went for the veggie burger. The Hottie Burger to be exact. And wow, that is the best veggie burger I've ever had in my entire life. Clearly homemade. Clearly fresh. Not clear exactly what was in it...rice, barley, other stuff...but it was SO good.

So then came the test.


Yeah, three times around. Ouch.

But not bad, except for my quads being a bit sore from the downhills.

Maybe I need to get a First Burger, veggie style, for the Mac 50! I wonder if they deliver...

  1. That's the veggie burger that I have been searching for... The perfect one. Not going to try to figure out what they used to make it? Quinou? Farro? Brown rice? Bean? Spices?

    Thanks for sharing and keep on your improved lifestyle!
