My last long run before the Run Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Half Marathon was yesterday so today I embraced the taper. I have done all I can do long run wise and now it is time to enjoy.
So, I enjoyed the last cool morning for a while (we have four 80+ degree days on the way) and met some friends downtown for a morning recovery run/walk. I was absolutely beautiful running around downtown this morning and I tried to will it to stay cooler by wearing a long-sleeved shirt, but I doubt it will work. It will be hot and sweaty here again soon.
However, before the hot and sweaty weather hits us one last beautiful cool morning was in store and in honor of the taper I strolled around (nice and slow) with a Candy Corn Latte post recovery run/walk.
Yes, you read that right – CANDY CORN LATTE!
Coffee + Candy Corn = HEAVEN!
By the time I made it home I was starving so I snagged a LÄRABAR. This one was so good. In fact it may taste too much like carrot cake, because I have been craving cream cheese frosting all day now. (I will not go buy frosting, I will not go buy frosting, …)
Would you try a candy corn latte?
What is your favorite type of cake? Mine is carrot, or my mom’s Hummingbird.
