Since today is Tuesday, I’m also linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Erika @ MCM Mama Runs, Marcia @ Marcia’s Healthy Slice and Patty @ My no-guilt life for
Today’s Topic is: Your Running Guilty Pleasure
Many might say mine is clothes because I always have to match but truth be told, many other runners buy much more running clothes than I. I don’t need to try every new item out there and I don’t like to spent my money on running clothes.
I have NEVER gotten a massage nor have I ever seen a chiropractor.
But I am a sucker for FOOD!!
Yes, I plan my runs by location near a desirable food locale like Starbucks coffee
or any ice cream establishment.
If someone mentions food after a run, I’m there!
I feel lucky to have found a bunch of women who feel the same way! You’ll never see any empty place in front of me after a run (only an empty plate LOL).
I am especially drawn to races with good post-race food options.
Yes, I know I most likely add back more calories that I have burned running.
Life is too short!
Happy Running! What is on your running guilty pleasure?
Oh no, I knew exactly what your running guilty pleasure would be.:)
I’m not sure I really have one. Except maybe the clothes thing. 🙂 But I spend most of my life in activewear, after all.
And yes, running clothes for you. I don’t know where you keep them all.

Hey, if you can’t treat yo’ self after a long run or race, then what’s the point of living? LOL, kinda kidding, but I’m all for post-run indulgences, as you are aware. 🙂
Yes I am. One of the reasons why I have FOMO about the Renegades.
You’ve definitely more than earned all those yummy foods! I don’t usually feel like eating right after a race but give me a couple off hours…

Some are not really earned but who cares? I more than earned some of the others.
I always think after a work out I can eat whatever I want, but like you said we usually indulge much more than what we actually burn. Oh well, we need to enjoy it too. All in moderation right?
I am wary of eating too much after a race, but I’m always up for Starbucks! On the other hand, I will treat myself to a massage.
