J and L finished just a few minutes after me (their first half marathons!) and we all hobbled over to the refreshment tent, grabbed some water and Power Bars and bananas, and posed for pictures (and no, we did not plan on the color coordination). After my crash following my last half marathon , I knew I had to do two things post-race: avoid Gatorade and eat protein. I had chocolate milk in my car, just in case, but luckily they had a wide variety of Power Bars with 20 grams of protein. We were sore but felt pretty good (no tummy issues) so J, K and I walked the few blocks over to Lowell Beer Works to grab what has become our traditional post-race pumpkin beer.Because I completed not one, but two half marathons this year. Me!!!! Who would have thought?!
