The Day After Your Marathon

Here’s a quick post to help all of you that are recovering from running marathon this weekend smile…

While getting gas and a 5 Hour Energy to fuel my drive home from St. George after Saturday’s marathon, the gas station clerk mentioned how gross she thought 5 Hour Energy tasted. I readily agreed with her assessment of 5 Hour Energy’s horrid flavor, but told her that I needed it to keep me awake on my drive home due to how tired I was from running the marathon the day before.

As soon as I mentioned that I had run the marathon, the gas station clerk to the left of the one that was helping me shouted out, “the day after the marathon!”

I chuckled and said, “what?”

“You’ve never seen the YouTube video “The Day After The Marathon?” the woman said in disbelief.

I smiled and told her that I had never seen the video. The clerk responded but telling me that I MUST watch the video as soon as I got home.

Intrigued by the fact that there was a humorous video about running that I had never seen, I looked up the video this afternoon. The gas station clerk was right! This video is all too real for those of us out there who are currently recovering or have ever recovered from a marathon. Click play on the video below and have a good laugh. Even if you have seen this video before, it definitely warrants repeat viewings. Enjoy!
