Running and What You Get To Eat After

"How do I fall in love with running?" I could sit here and tell you about the confidence you'll gain and how running will change your life but I'm changing it up by showing you what will really make you fall in love with running...THE EATING! Let me ask you a question...

Do you like to eat food?

OF COURSE YOU DO! Who doesn't?!?

Ever heard of RUN TO EAT? Well I went ahead made some very handy info-graphics to break down just what you get to eat when you run a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon. Now selfishly I tailored them to the amount of calories I have burned during my past 5Ks/10Ks/Half Marathons and Marathons get the idea. Without any further ado here's what you get to eat when you run!

Let's start with burgers and beer shall we?

Now how about some big giant burritos and beer?

Tacos and coronas post half marathon? I'd dare to call that EUPHORIC!

The King of all food....PIZZA! (DISCLAIMER: This one isn't as fun...In fact, I actually felt like someone punched me in my hope when I saw this because I can easily eat an entire pizza on any given day...)

Now my goal in life is to do a "Cupcake Half Marathon." What exactly does that entail? I want to eat a cupcake EVERY. SINGLE. MILE OF THE RACE! That's right. 13 cupcakes for 13 miles. That sounds like a perfect Saturday to me.

Are you a donuts lover? This one is for you.

CHOCOLATE AND WINE! Because who wouldn't want to run 26.2 miles so they could house 5 chocolate bunnies and a bottle of wine GUILT FREE.

Pumpkin spice everything! Who WOULDN'T want some pumpkin pie after running all the miles?  

Pumpkin pie running eat after

And finally ICE CREAM! Because there's nothing more delicious than ice cream.

Ice Cream and Running

Alright if that doesn't motivate you to start running...I don't know what will! Did I miss anything? Let me know what you love to eat after a run!

Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
