Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins. However, these do not apply after running an ultramarathon. Therefore, I am already planning for my post-race celebration. Here are a few things that have crossed my mind:
A Strong Hearts Milkshake
Strong Hearts vegan milkshakes are amazing. I had one after the Mountain Goat Run and I will definitely be having one after the Cayuga Trails 50! There are so many amazing shakes to choose from but my favorites are Ernie Davis (Butterfinger) and Earth Crisis (Chocolate Peanut Butter). If you’re ever in the area, stop by and get one of these shakes – it will change your life.
I’m not 100% sure pancakes are in my future, but they’re an option. I might be in more of a sandwich mood. Perhaps I’ll go straight to dessert. Maybe I’ll wait until the day after. All I know is that any food that has “cake” in the name must be good!
This is a no-brainer. I will obviously need caffeine and coffee is just a little too boring to celebrate a fifty miler – so mocha it is! Who am I kidding – I’m sure there will be coffee too.
Here’s where things get tricky. After running fifty miles, I’m pretty sure I’ll only be able to handle one of these beers:
The Ommegang Hennepin comes in a 25.4oz bottle and is 7.7% ABV.
The Middle Ages Double IPA comes in a 22oz bottle and is 10% ABV.
Well… maybe I’ll be able to handle one of each 🙂
