Today's TOTR topic is guilty pleasures for runners.
Since I was just in Vegas, the first one will be easy. All the chocolate I bought from Ethel M's. Granted, not all of it was for me, but the chocolate boxes were the big purchase of the trip. The only other item I bought was the Starbucks You Are Here mug. I wanted something that wasn't food.
I also know what I'm going to do after Bay to Breakers. San Francisco is home to Ghirardelli. I know we shouldn't turn food into guilty pleasures, but it is food I don't have unless I'm in particular places. I made sure to stop at Ghirardelli in 2015 when my parents and I visited for my 30th birthday trip, and I got the Nob Hill Chill. What other concoctions can I order?
Disney of course has the Dole Whip, and EPCOT has a great drink at the French pavilion.
There are many other ways to splurge after a good race. I try to get a pedicure after a training cycle because my feet do need it. I didn't opt for one after Vegas since I'd gotten one before my cousin's wedding, but I'll schedule one after the Bay to Breakers.
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
