Today I’m joining the DC Trifecta, Mar On The Run, You Signed Up For What?!, and Eat Pray Run DC, for their Friday Five Linkup. This week’s theme is your favorite cold weather drinks, but I’ll actually drink these anytime of the year if the mood suits me (because that’s how I roll, baby).
1. My all time favorite: Water!!
I’m from Arizona and learned at a very young age that water is the absolute best drink at any given time. I never go anywhere without a water bottle, and I always carry a purse big enough to fit a bottle inside. I’m not picky… good old tap water works for me. I’m one of those that drank out of a hose in the olden days and survived.
2. Hot black tea.
I don’t drink coffee, but my day doesn’t start without a cup of tea, or two. I do exactly 5 things before I have my tea which are totally routine driven so I don’t have to think about them, but if you threw in an extra task at me before I had my tea, I’d be like:
3. Chocolate Milk!
This is how I start the recovery process when I get back from my long runs. The longer the run, the bigger the glass and the more chocolate I put into the milk. Don’t judge… I earn every gram of sugar it gives me.
On Friday night, unless I have a race the next day, guaranteed a bottle of Moscato is being consumed by yours truly. So if you see a blog post from me on Saturday morning, be kind… it was the wine talking.
5. And last but not least, hot chocolate!
Okay, this one I’ll only drink in the winter, but I love making a big mug for myself and my son… with lots and lots of chocolate and lots and lots of marshmallows! Again, I’m in it for the sugar, what can I say!
Tomorrow James and I have the Redmond Turkey Trot. Afterwards we will go out to celebrate our success with a huge stack of pancakes and bacon!! (Oh yeah, I said it!!) What’s your race schedule this next week? Got any Turkey Trots planned? Any favorite cold weather drinks you’d like to share?
