Okay, still working on my race recap but I will have it up tomorrow morning. I do have for you what our post-race festivities looked like yesterday…
A quick shower and trip to the gas station for my favorite post-race treat—> soda. It is my way to celebrate a good race. I am pretty sure I thought about the below soda non-stop for the last two miles of the race.
We made our way up to Sundance to spend the morning at one of our friend’s cabins.
The cabin is right next to a river and tucked away in a million trees… it was beyond peaceful.
We had cheesy eggs, pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Excellent recovery fuel if you ask me. But probably don’t ask me because I am not a nutritionist.
After we got home we took a long nap (3 a.m. wake-up call for me and 6:30 a.m. wake-up call for Brooke) and then Brooke took another nap at dinner. Sometimes it is just way too hard to wait for food to get to the table.
I skip out on salads for a few days leading up to a race so I always crave one afterwards. My cobb salad hit the spot.
We saw Mission Impossible and it was beyond amazing. I loved every second.
Also, does Tom Cruise ever age? I think not.
We went to Waffle Love for an 11:00 pm treat to share because we clearly needed to do some more post-race celebrating. Fried ice-cream on top of a cinnamon sugar waffle.
Also, Brooke partied pretty hard right after the race in the big jump house that they had at the track. She was in heaven and I am sure she will want me to do this half-marathon every year now.
\What’s on your list of things to-do today?
Absolute favorite post-race treat?
