How about a Keeping-It-Real tell-all on a few things that are #NotMyGig?
Yes, I'm a runner (I have been for 16+ years). I love lacing up and hitting the streets. I know the importance of fueling, hydrating, and re-hydrating after a long run or an especially hot/humid day.
But, there are several things most runners embrace that I have to turn my back on and take a pass. Trust me, there's no FOMO (or not much LOL). After all, running is a pretty individual thing.
Care to hear a few?
|Look closely, I'm drinking a soda while the others are enjoying a post-long ride brew
|banana bread (with blueberries) for the win!
|Give me a hot chai latte' and no one gets hurt
Well, this kind of turned into a bit of a runfessional disclosure. There have been times when I've felt a bit of a poser-in-running-shoes as I watched (what seemed like) everyone else indulging in a banana and/or post-race beer. Most of them have also (probably) had a cup (or two) of coffee prior to the start line. It's a good thing we get to do this running thing on our own terms or I'd be in trouble.
So, talk to me...are any of the "things" mentioned above part of your running ritual or routine?
