What do you do after a run? Do you may have a set routine after you end a future?? Do you eat the identical factor? Do the identical stretches??
It’s PILE on the MILES Day 17 and in the present day’s theme is POST-RUN. I’m sharing what I ate after operating the Wine and Dine Half Marathon lately. This race is made for RUN EAT REPEAT-ing!
If you happen to’re not acquainted – the Run Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend is among the group’s very long time race weekends. It’s scheduled through the Meals and Wine Pageant at Epcot and the post-race celebration is definitely within the theme park.
The Epcot theme park may be very distinctive (past the enduring geodesic dome). It has worldwide pavilions that includes nations from all all over the world. Every space is designed to seem like the nation featured and gives meals and merchandise that symbolize the world.
They usually make it subsequent degree with their annual Meals and Wine Pageant that options restricted time foods and drinks choices.
PLUS – the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Put up Race celebration is within the Epcot Theme Park so it’s the right alternative to Run and Eat.
However, it’s at night time so it’s not a really perfect state of affairs for meals pictures… so I made a brief video with among the meals we had at Epcot. And I snapped pics all through the weekend of what I used to be consuming earlier than and after the run (under).
I didn’t get photos or video of every thing we ate on the Put up-Race Celebration at Epcot. However listed below are the issues I bear in mind or was capable of get a midway respectable image or video.
- The Unimaginable Burger Slider at Earth Eats hosted by Unimaginable
- Kenyan Espresso BBQ Beef with Corn Mealie Pap on the Kenya Outpost
- Crispy BBQ Pork Rinds and Pimento Cheese at The Swanky Saucy Swine
- Soy-Glazed Sticky Ribs at The Swanky Saucy Swine
- The S’mores Whoopie Pie-lon at Flavors from Hearth
- 4 Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel at Flavors from Hearth
- Lobster Chowder with bacon, corn and potatoes from Lobster Touchdown
- Steenburg Glowing Sauvignon Blanc from Lobster Touchdown
- Maple Popcorn from Canada World Showcase
- Cinnamon Apple Cider from Apple Seed Orchard
- Evil Elixir (the signature cocktail of the post-race celebration) – we received this on the Appleseed Orchard and hung on the market for some time.
It was darkish by the point we began to stroll across the World Showcase for dinner and it was surprisingly crowded. The post-race celebration didn’t formally begin till 9pm-ish, earlier than that there have been common admission park guests AND race celebration attendees. So, I attempted to get a fast image or video below the sunshine of no matter sales space we had been at after which get out of the way in which. Regardless that I didn’t get all of the pics I can say that every thing we ate was scrumptious.
I used to be going to notice what I like to recommend and what I’d move on subsequent time however – I actually preferred every thing. Wait – if I needed to be choosy I’d advocate every thing besides the pork rinds simply because the feel isn’t my jam. However the pimento cheese dip they arrive with is sweet! So, simply BYOC in the event you don’t like pork rinds (BYOC = deliver your individual chips). I don’t know if it’s a Mexican factor or what however my household had chiccarones (pork rinds) on a regular basis after I was a child and I bear in mind them being tasteless and onerous. These had been smaller and extra flavorful, however I can’t get the reminiscence out of my head.
Touring to Orlando for the race… I received Panera through the quick layover. They had been ‘bought out’ of all salads and a lot of the soups so I went with my fifth alternative. I used to be a lil dissatisfied as a result of I used to be craving their Rooster and Apple Salad and a complete grain baguette, however I’m additionally not going to kick a carb away from bed.
Touring to Orlando… my journey buddy received Pinkberry with Nutella and I stole some bites. I didn’t know Nutella was a toppings possibility?! Have you ever had this?
We received into Orlando fairly late native time and I used to be wakeful and hungry. We stopped at Wawa for meals as a result of it was open and there weren’t loads of choices. I additionally received a bit of cornbread and TONS of snacks and drinks to have within the room over the weekend. No pics of the snacks and drinks – it was principally junk.
Breakfast Day 1 – the resort had a really spectacular breakfast buffet that was included within the keep. I anticipated a loaf of bread and damaged toaster, however was pleasantly stunned with the unfold. They’d Mickey waffles, eggs, sausage, muffins, bagels, cereal, milk, yogurt, fruit, espresso and tea.
I additionally noticed a lil desk with salsa, cheese and spinach… I figured it was for the eggs and added it to my plate. It was fairly busy after I was getting breakfast so it was humorous to see this space with out anybody close to it. Extra for me!
We went to the race expo after breakfast. Extra on that later. It’s also possible to see my journey to the expo in 15 seconds in a brief clip right here – Run Eat Repeat Instagram Run Disney Expo video
After the expo we went to Panera so I might lastly get my Rooster and Apple Salad craving happy. It was similar to I remembered. And the tomato soup was soooooo good!
In some unspecified time in the future I received Moe’s Mexican Meals (it’s not a sequence in SoCal, so I don’t bear in mind the complete title). They gave us A LOT of chips – wait, I imply A LOT of BROKEN chips. However, I just like the damaged ones so I used to be cool with it.
After the race you get a field of meals, a banana, water and a sports activities drink. That is very properly organized and so much higher than being handed a bunch of random issues proper after you completed a race. I’ve BIG arms however can’t maintain a banana, granola bar and a water bottle PLUS take a post-race selfie. And I used to be FREEZING so it was onerous for me to carry something within the first place.
Anyway. Right here’s what was within the post-race meals field: massive goldfish grahams (beloved), nuts, chips, cheese, hand wipe + a banana, water and powerade.
The race began SO EARLY it was a really tough 3am wake-up name. However the advantage of the early begin time is I used to be completed and again on the resort with loads of time to hit up the breakfast buffet. Growth.
I needed to have Mickey Mouse waffles to have a good time Run Disney races being again! I’ve missed so many individuals, occasions and issues over the previous yr – and I’m tremendous grateful that I used to be capable of run this race and see pleasant faces operating once more. God bless.
Be aware: This wasn’t EVERYTHING I ate throughout race weekend. There’s at all times tons of snacks in RER-land. I’m simply stunned I didn’t snapg a pic of what I ate earlier than the race. Rookie mistake!
I’m a lil rusty with this complete meals running a blog factor. I believed it was similar to using a motorbike – however possibly it’s extra like consuming a motorbike?
Anyway. Examine again quickly for the race recap and extra!
