So this weekend Baby Brother has been visiting to run Bridge to Brews with us (and to see his favorite sister of course)
Yesterday, we went out for a happy hour, to help fuel ourselves for the race.
We hit up the McCormick and Schmick’s on the waterfront to get our pre-game on. I’m a fan of the view
We’re serious athletes, so you should take this as a lesson on how to prepare for a race.
Hydration is important in the days leading up to a race. I had a berry drink of some sort. Which was basically a smoothie
Healthy and hydrating.
Alternately, you can go the boys’ route and combine hydration and carbo-loading. We love the harborside McCormick’s because it’s also the PDX Full Sail, which means you get a bunch of pub-only brews
hydration + carbs = multitasking!
Don’t tell me alcohol is dehydrating. It’s a liquid, it hydrates you. Science.
It’s also important to have protein
And healthy fats
(Fats are healthiest if they’re consumed with a carbohydrate. Again, science.)
And when all else fails, you can’t go wrong with the hummus platter. You just can’t.
We also had burgers and fries. Just to double check that we got enough protein. And carbs. And super healthy fats.
And that friends is how you properly pre-game for a 10 k. I promise.
Race Recap tomorrow!
