After our half marathon on Sunday, Chris, his parents and I went to BRGR, a restaurant in Pittsburgh for our post-race lunch!
At least I changed before we went to lunch!
Anyway, I had heard about the spiked shakes at BRGR and was thinking about how a cold milk shake would taste great after such a grueling race. I ordered the salted pretzel caramel milkshake, which was spiked with rum.
I think it kept me full for two days. But it was so worth it!
My lunch was the santa fe hippie burger–falafel on a bun. It was good, but the milkshake was so filling I only ate half and didn’t really get to really enjoy the burger. I had the leftovers for dinner.
It was a great ending to a great time in Pittsburgh.
After having some time to think about the race, I’ve decided that it doesn’t really make much sense for me to be that upset about it. I still finished, which most people can’t do.
The PR I’ve been chasing for almost two years happened on a cool fall day on a flat course. It was my first half marathon. I think those conditions have to be recreated for me to do something like that again. I KNOW I have it in me to run a sub 2:04 half marathon, I know it!
The Pittsburgh half marathon was still great in its own away. I still earned this. And there will be more to come.
