We are so pathetic

Ever since Dug blogged about Simply Sushi, I've wanted to go there. But since I've been, um, dieting, going to an all-you-can-eat place, even if it is sushi, just didn't seem to make sense.

Well, since tomorrow I'm doing a 170 mile race, with something like 9,544 feet of climbing, I figured I'd be OK having a larger-than-normal lunch today. And since my daughter, who loves sushi, is out of school for just a few more weeks, and I was taking the afternoon off, I figured I'd bring her to work with me, and we'd grab lunch together then head home.

All-you-can-eat lunch is $14.95 for adults and $9.95 for kids 12 and under. Between us, we ate three long rolls (menu price: $6.50 each) and one nigiri (menu price: $6.00). Total menu price: $25.50. Amount we spent for "all-you-can-eat:" $24.90. And I was really struggling to put down that last piece of spicy tuna roll.

The guy making the sushi looked at me like I deserved to be shoved into a locker or given a swirly when I told him we were done.

  2. You should have been stashing a few rolls in your pockets since you were too much of a girl to get your money's worth. I bet a mild sushi roll would make great long race food. A lot of simple carbs and some protein. This is not to be attempted with sashimi, however.

  3. I love sushi, too, but I'm not sure if that's the right pre-race meal - how much carbs did you load for - holy shit - 9000+ feet of climbing ... How did you go in the race?
