What do you look forward to the most right after a run? Food, hot shower, stretching on the ground, looking at your garmin stats.. other?
If you could have a FREE shopping spree to one section at Target… which section would you choose?
What is your standard lunch these days?
Anyone love a bizarre ice cream flavor (for example Brooke’s cotton candy flavor love)?
So glad you’re OK!!
I needed a cold shower after my run today. It was so HUMID and warm out!
I would need a free shopping spree to the clothing section at Target. And the shoe section. And the snacks. Can I just have all of the sections? :)
I can’t pick all of target? Because I would. Food or a shower are my favorite post run things.
Sarah @ SarahRuns26
Glad you’re ok, but I want some details!?What the heck!?
Hot shower is always the best, but especially after a cold run! And I love running with friends, but HATE the super crazy early alarms! (Yes, alarms. I set like for of them or I won’t get up.)
Ellen @ Tale of Two Runs
Very glad to hear you are both OK. saw the pic and for a second there I was like…. say what?!?!?!? I was exactly the same with Target! You have no idea how much i miss it!!!!!! No such thing in Uk-land….. Your carrot cake made me hungry!!
FOOD. I always eat all the carbs before I even get a shower in. Peanut butter and honey waffles, always.
Ok, first, yikes about the cop. Do you need us to beat someone up?
Second, this song makes me really happy when I run and when I heard it I thought of you: ‘Hold My Hand’ by Jess Glynne.
Third, ugh, I’m really mad someone ruined your first days in your new place.
Yeah, yeah, I didn’t answer any of your questions. I’m just feeling rando.
Cotton candy flavored ice cream is always the first pick for my son! And yes I want to go to sleep right now after seeing that picture :)
Whoa, that’s scary! I’m sorry because I know you were loving your new place.
In the winter I look forward to stretching, warm shower and a hot drink. In the summer I look forward to stretching, an ice bath and something to drink that’s not water or sports drink. It usually takes me a little while to want food.
I’d love a shopping spree in the workout clothes or grocery section. That’s kind of sad but really it’s where I spend my money.
Laura @ This Runner's Recipes
I’m glad you are ok!! Food is the main thing I want right after a run, followed by a shower. I love maple ice cream—not sure if that’s a bizarre choice but it is so good!
I just wish I could shop at target still:-( but home decor!
Rachel @ Simply Rachel Nicole
Oh my goodness how scary! I hope everything is okay! Target totally sucks me in too! I generally go right to the little girl’s section to shop for my daughter ha. A relaxing bath after a run is amazing and also stretching. :)
That is so scary, I hope it all turns out all right!
Right after a run, my first thought is…using the bathroom or WATER! Especially in the summer, dry lips and throat = no bueno.
Target workout clothes = preferable over engagement jewelry. Don’t propose with a diamond, propose with some leggings, sir!
College means my standard lunch is whatever I can make in 28 seconds. Not 30, not 25. 28.
Not a flavor, but I feel like I am in the minority camp when I say Strawberry is my favorite part of Neapolitan ice cream.
Cotton candy ice cream is THE BEST. Brooke knows her ice cream :)
OMG what happened?! Glad you’re okay!
All I can think of after a run is that I want my coffee!
Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious
Oh my goodness! I hope everything is all right!!!
So happy to hear you & Brooke are okay!
I love cotton candy ice cream from Coldstone Creamery!
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff
Of course the active wear section.
Garmin upload, stretch and foam roll, water and snack, hot shower, more food.
I hope all is ok. Thanks for keeping us in suspense about what happened.
Scary, but glad you’re okay!
I have those same top secret shoes! (Well, at least that’s the deal with mine.)
Oh my goodness, Janae!!! I hope you guys are okay!!!!!
After a run…..blazin hot shower if its a cold or wet run. Hot coffee if its a morning run. Food if its an afternoon run.
Just one section….gah!!! Brb…I need a lil while to think about this.
Lunch has been either salads with grains, avocado, grilled veggies, and hummus…or PB&J!
I’m a classic (boring?) vanilla girl.
gosh! I am glad you guys are okay.
I try not to run right to the kitchen after a run because I will clean it out..instead I make coffee and foam roll. I always let me husband shower first because he sweats more = colder guy. Then after he is out, I shower – so hot I don’t even turn on the cold sometimes!!
Lunch was cottage cheese and apples
Best ice cream is this in-house made gelato called La Casa Gelato with 518 flavors and you can sample them all day long – http://www.lacasagelato.com/ Weirdest I have tried was curry. Best is nutella / toblerone.
Scary stuff; I’m glad you’re ok. That really sucks! You just moved in.
I don’t know that I could pick just one target section. I could do serious damage in the grocery section, health and beauty, shoes, clothes, kids, pretty much anywhere. I found a 5% off target coupon in the mail today. I’m excited!
The shoes not being harmed in the puddle jumping is so me. I won’t run in wet grass or mud. I make the cars slow down and go around me. We don’t have sidewalks or shoulders here.
Oh yikes!! I’m glad everything is okay!!
Oh, Janae! I hope everything is alright!! Please let us know when it’s all resolved.
I do NOT look forward to stretching or showering after my runs… it’s always a chore. I’m in it for the food!
Brooke is so freaking adorable in every post. I used to love cotton candy ice cream when I was her age! More recently, the strangest and BEST ice cream flavor I’ve tried was summer sweet corn. Imagine the best corn on the cob you’ve ever had in ice cream form.
I look forward to showering the most.
Target… home decor and clothing! I love the new line there “Knox Rose.”
I never have a standard lunch. It’s always different, but I’m never home during the day. If I were it would probably consist of leftovers.
When I was in England I had caramel praline crunch by Haagen Daazs and despite serious efforts I haven’t found it here! It was delicious though. Glad that you and Brooke are okay!
Ah I love cotton candy ice cream!!! That or the blue daiquiri one! Glad you’re okay!! I would want a shopping spree in the fitness section…but o my if it included more Han clothes! Like running fuel, recovery things, etc. ? I’m really stretching it there!
I’m glad you are ok and you have family close by! Hope everything is better now!
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties
AHH what the heck?! That’s scary! glad you are okay but not happy to hear that something weird happened!
Also… cotton candy ice cream sounds DELISH. I love cotton candy flavored anything.
I can’t believe I’m going to be the first person to say Chocolate Milk. I love love love chocolate milk after I run; dreaming of its cool chocolatey deliciousness has gotten me to rock star finish many a long run. :-)
Oh man, Target is the best! But just one section?? Oh jeez… umm…. ugh, it’s a tie, I just can’t choose between activewear and office supplies! I’m a sucker for new workout clothes AND I have an insane obsession with journals/notebooks/pens/etc. Lol
Post run is a nice cool shower (because this is the gulf coast of florida so every run is sweaty and humid and icky haha)… and food. All the food. haha.
Colleen @ CSmith Run
Oh man, I can never figure out what to do first after running – shower or eat. Probably should try stretching…oops…
My standard lunch is a turkey sandwich (with hummus and cucumber) and a bag of pretzels. It’s been working well the past few weeks!
The BFF bracelets…….O my heart!!!!
Stretching on the ground!
Anne @ runningmyselfragged
After a run its straight to the hot shower. Ahhh nothing better. Then directly to the food that I’ve been thinking about during the run.
There isn’t a bad flavor of ice cream but my absolute favorite is ‘birthday cake’ ! It is sooo yummy.
I can’t believe you left us with that picture of the cop!! You’ve got to fill us in soon. I’m so glad you have your parents near by for times like that.
Oh no! I hope you are both ok! Sending love and positive vibes to you and your little one xx
Julie VB (@Julievbx)
Fortunately you’re okay! But that sounds like a not so nice development in life…
After a run I pretty much just enjoy the feeling of accomplishment and gratefulness to my body. Because I mostly run in the mornings, I stretch, take a shower, get onto breakfast and just generally look forward to continue the day with a smile after the beautiful morning kickstarting I just enjoyed.
I live in Belgium. And there have not been any Target sightings in Europe as far as I’m aware ;)
Haha, I love how I have switched up favourite ice cream flavours over the year. I used to be very exotic, not cotton candy exotic but still colourful. In the past I picked pistacchio, green apple, pear, orange. Now I’m all for the perfect staple ice cream flavours of vanilla, chocolate, biscuits and variations on these!
Have a nice day!
Is the cop April fools? I hope so!
Ah you poor thing! I hope everything is ok. It’s so nice you have your parents house to stay at! There are nights when my husband is at work that every noise makes me jump and I sleep on the floor next to my baby’s crib. ?
Running friends are the best. I miss mine. It’s not the same running alone!
Omg devastated that you’ve had a scare because I know you were just feeling settled but I’m glad you are okay. I know you have family that will make sure your 100% okay that makes me feel better. You know we all love you and get worried if something happens!!
Onto happier things I am most looking forward to my 16km run tomorrow and were house sitting for friends in an awesome area so I get to run along the beach yay.
Free shopping at Target: clothes. All the cute clothes. Especially new workout clothes.
Glad you and Brooke are OK!
Ultra Run Couple @UltraRunCouple
Todd actually caught me eating a turkey sandwich in the bathtub after a cold long run one time…I guess I couldn’t choose between my first and second strongest desire after I finished, so I went with both food and a hot bath!
I would definitely select the food section of Target for my spree!
My standard lunch is tuna and egg on whole wheat bread with whole a whole carrot, banana, and pistachios.
That cotton candy flavor sounds awful! We stick with only non-fruity ice creams over here – vanilla, chocolate, caramel, etc.
I hope your incident did not make you love your new place any less. We are glad you are okay and hopefully not too spooked by whatever went down!
Angela @ Witty Aspirations
Stretching and a shower are my top two after a run. I’m usually not very hungry after any sort of work out.
Hope you guys are safe!
Next time you are at TJ’s I HIGHLY recommend picking up this BBQ sauce:
It might change your life. :)

I definitely look forward to a hot shower after a run! I usually don’t have an appetite until a few hours after..
Ice cream = cotton candy for life!
In high school, I used to spend Saturdays binge-watching the OC and devouring 2-L tubs of cotton candy ice cream……
Oh no! The police picture worries me. I’m glad you’re okay and I’m sending you prayers and good vibes. I love rainy day runs, cotton candy ice-cream, and midnight desserts with my mom. Those small joys bring so much happiness. Happy running!
Hope everything is ok.
Oh no! I hope everything is ok! Y’all need to get two dogs- one puppy to love on and one full-grown with a big bark to keep you protected!
At first look, I seriously thought the cop was peeing in your house!!!! But then I realized that it was way more serious – so glad you’re ok!!
:0 Why was there a cop in your room?!
I LOVE Target and I always come home with more than what I went for… and that usually includes at least one awesome item from the dollar spot.
That picture of the cop – how scary! Some people are so creepy!! This is why you and Brooke most definitely need a dog!!
I am so glad you and Brooke are ok. I am thinking of you both and that would be frightening, even without the details!
Have a good weekend,
Glad you guys are alright!! I love and hate Target… I always come out with a million things…
