We were in Baltimore this weekend for my friend's Bachelorette Weekend. We arrived Friday night and had a low key night drinking a glass of wine and watching the UVA Basketball Game. The next morning I woke up pretty early and went off for a run before everyone else woke up. It was a chilly morning and I had forgotten my earphones as well as my GPS watch. It was kind of nice to "unplug" and just run enjoying the scenery.
Post run, I stopped into the Daily Grind for a skim hot chocolate (which, unfortunately wasn't the best ever, but was good enough).

Just because its something simple like chocolate milk doesnt mean we can't class it up a bit! I have to admit, some days I run just to get my post-run chocolate milk. But it works as motivation when I am lacking it otherwise. Find something like that that works for you. Just try to make it something good for you. Chocolate milk is a great post-workout drink because it has the perfect ratio of protein to carbohydrate. The fact that its delicious makes it all the better!!!
In case you are wondering about alternatives for vegans, you can have soy chocolate "milk", it does have a very similar ratio of protein/carb. Chocolate Almond Milk is still very yummy, but it doesnt have as much protein in it so it doesnt work quite as well.
