Or, if you’ve done a full marathon or a half, there might have been a pasta feed the night before. This tradition is quite common, but is there science behind the pasta pig down!!??
Pick jam—not butter—for your toast, tomato sauce in lieu of alfredo sauce on your pasta, and frozen yogurt instead of ice cream for dessert.
So how does the Calhoun Beach Running Club carbo-load?
However, it was not the night before the race. With so many runners doing marathons in various locations (Scranton, Chicago, Mankato, Twin Cities), our pasta party is held the Wednesday before Twin Cities.
And this year, the carbo-loading occured at Pizza Luce in Hopkins. It turns out one of our members is a manager there, and he generously hosted us there for a reasonable price of $20/person for all you can eat pasta/pizza, as well as one drink (beer or wine).
But enough about me.
This is what the real CBRC members wear…
And this is what the true hipsters wear:
Pizza Luce in Hopkins of course!
We had a semi-private room, which was a nice touch.
