I did something really momentous this Sunday. I completed my first half marathon! Yes, I’m one step closer to taking on a full 26.2 mile marathon!
To celebrate this big feat, I had to make myself something very special.
Circa 2010 while my boyfriend and I lived in Napa, we would drive out to San Francisco once a month to get banana cream pies at Tartine Bakery. It was something I looked forward to all month. I didn’t care about the long drive, 30 minutes it would take us to find street parking, or the line that wrapped outside the bakery. I just wanted that pie.
After I finished my half marathon, I was handed a banana and all I could think about was that pie once again.
