WTF: Where’s The Food?

One of my favorite things about running is eating after the run! Eating food after a long and challenging run is like no other pleasure. I love the combination of elation and chewing that I get to experience when I hit up the trough after a race–even if it is just quartered bagels and peanut butter.

Last night I went for a 7 mile run; toward the end there was a lot of freezing fog, which looked like glitter streaming down under my head lamp. It was a fantastic way to finish off the week. I came home and made myself a BOWL of goodness. Spinach, cranberries, walnuts, feta, poppy seed dressing, chicken. Oh my, what a good nosh! I topped it off with a glass of Rioja and I was set.

Really, what is better than running, eating, a glass of wine, a hot shower, and some snuggles from my dear ones? Nothing, in this lady’s opinion.

Probably no running today as we’re venturing to visit family. I hope to get a trail run in tomorrow.

    • Last night some evil person was roasting something with a ton of garlic and I ran through the wafting smells right as I started my run… not fair I tell you!

  1. This is so true! After hot runs, yogurt and fruit is the best! I can always eat right after I run too, don’t understand those people who have to wait an hour or two!
