Post-race Treats

Tuesdays on the Run with April, Patty, and Erika.


Treating myself after races is part of the fun.  I've treated my feet and gotten pedicures,


I've indulged in ice cream,


and I've had my favorite adult beverages at Disney 


and elsewhere.


Margaritaville is a great off-property place to go ater a race.  It's at Universal Studios, with great food and great drinks.  I've indulged in many a Disney treat, but if y'all are looking to get off property, I'd recommend Jimmy's place.  Between the fish tacos, the Cheeseburger in Paradise, margaritas and boat drinks, and key lime pie, what's not to like?

    1. If I go to the spa here, I get a peppermint scrub too. I need to take care of my feet since they take a beating.

  2. I could never get a pedicure...I have a thing against feet in general, and people touching mine. My favorite treat is Pancakes!

    1. I've done it twice and it's great. Since I don't want to wear sneakers the rest of the day, I can show off in flip flops.

    1. That was at Denny's after the Eugene half. My friend and I wanted to splurge and both got ice cream creations.

  9. I love a good Margarita. I'm not sure I could handle a pedicure after a long race - my toes are usually really sore. Foot massage might be nice though.

    1. Adult beverages are the best after races.

  10. Confession time. I do a half in FL just because it is sponsored by Margaritaville. Jimmy Buffet makes the best margarita on the planet. You start with free Landshark and seafood gumbo. And then, you move on to the margaritas (not free but well worth the price).

    1. Splurging on food is fun. I chose only one item so I don't go overboard but I have fun with the food choices.

    1. It's nice. My toes can be sore after a big race, but my feet feel so much better after being pampered.
