Now that my race recap has been published, here’s what Mal and I did after the marathon:
Please note: I am getting into a bathtub full of cold water. Mal hadn’t even added the ice yet. He found the whole thing hysterical. I’m such a wuss.
Once I had a beer in my hand, Mal dumped in the ice. It was painfully cold, but it definitely helped my sore muscles. I’m barely sore today!
Mal and I shared a chicken pesto panini and some baked mac & cheese from the hotel bar. We had big plans to watch the Pats game at a nearby sports bar, but neither of wanted to walk to it after running 26.2 miles.
Went to bed.
We were supposed to meet up with some blog buddies for dinner, but Mal and I ended up climbing into bed around 7:00 pm. We were exhausted, but the feeling of accomplishment was totally worth it.
What are your post-race rituals?
