Five Favorite Race Foods


While sitting on a bench at Disneyland last year I decided that part of why I runDisney is because of the park food I get to eat- guilt free- afterward.

I’m talking about those ordinary items that somehow taste a zillion times better before, during, or after a race.

In no particular order:




Post- Race Pickles

I call these Samoan pickles.

I am not a huge pickle eater and take them off my burgers and sandwiches, but man, after 13.1 sweaty miles I’m ALL over these puppies.

The colder, the better!


DL popcorn



Disneyland Popcorn is the absolute best, and I can throw down an entire bucket in no time after a race.

Best shared with friends and a view!





Any time, any place during a race weekend I can love on a Coke.

I don’t even drink them on a daily basis anymore, but if you are on the course cheering and have one of those mini-Coke cans? You are my new BFF.

I’m pretty sure I had 3 of those tiny cans during the marathon without a single regret!





If you are sensing a theme, you are not wrong.  Salt or Sugar are my faves when it comes to running with food, and I alternate between the two out on the course.

These gummy bears?  AWESOME at mile 10 this past weekend.


Margarita marathon


Mile 26 Margarita

Okay, so there was an order.  This is hands down the single most delicious thing I’ve ever had on a race course.

The mile 26 margarita, frozen with salt, rocked my marathon world two weeks ago.

It was divine, and I finished every single drop of that sucker with a smile on my face.  It would be cool if someone brought their margarita machine out to mile 12 of any half marathon I happen to be running in. You’d get some serious cheer crew cred for that.  Just sayin’!
