Now that we've got a few half-marathons under our belts, my running buddies and I have turned our attention towards February's Mardi Gras Rock & Roll Marathon. We started training a few weeks ago, which means we run at least three days a week, mixed in with some cardio and strength workouts. Due to the time constraints of the workweek, we save our long runs for Saturdays and Sundays, which means one thing: post-run brunch!
Long runs, often around 10 miles or more, leave us absolutely ravenous, so four of us have taken to trying a different restaurant every weekend, and - this is the best part! - we order whatever we want. After all, French bread stuffed with scrambled eggs, sausage gravy, American cheese and bacon is easily rationalized when you've just burned off 800 calories.
