I don’t know about you, but one of my concerns when I travel to races is what I am going to eat the night before. I want something that is going to help my race and not make me sick. It has to be:
– fast (I don’t want to be on my feet for an hour waiting for a table)
– affordable (I would rather spend $$ on the post-race celebration)
– nearby (I’ve already traveled to the race, I don’t want to spend another hour getting to dinner)
I’ve spent many a night scouring the internet for restaurants to eat at before a race, and on more than one occasion, I’ve settled for a dud. I’m hoping to put a stop to that right here – not just for me, but for all of us.
In order for this to work, I need your help!! I’ve started by listing the ten largest marathons in the U.S. at:
I need you to provide restaurants that you or someone you know has eaten at, preferably, but not necessarily, before a race. I’d like for you to give me the name, location, a brief description and whether or not you would recommend it. You can leave it in the comments section of this post and I will add it to the page. I may be able to rustle up a small prize for the person who can provide the most helpful guidance.
If this works, I will expand it to more races and locations – and I will also add a post-race page that will focus on post-race drinking, as well as post-race eating.
Thank you in advance for your help!
