Kitchen 324: to the rescue after 20 mile run

If you’ve read our About page, you know the background. Jon and I are runners. And we met running. It was perfect.

But none of this would have happened without the Landrunners Oklahoma City Running Club. We wouldn’t have this blog, our past incredible year together, nothing, if we hadn’t met at that first training run on a freezing early morning nearly a year ago.

So flash forward to now….and we’re deep in training with the Landrunners for the Tulsa Route 66 Marathon coming up in November. Yesterday was the longest run in the training so far – 20 miles. Ugh.

After all those miles were behind me, all I could think of was how hard it was to walk, and how thirsty and hungry I was. The route started and ended in front of the Oklahoma City National Memorial at 5th and Robinson. Conveniently close to Kitchen 324….exactly what I needed.

It was a busy Sunday morning, but we were able to grab a table fairly quickly.

Jon was sconethe sweetest and managed to get the very last scone for me, along with a chocolate bear claw for himself, and we enjoyed them along with our oatmeal and fruit. I couldn’t seem to drink enough water, and it was nice how we were able to have a large bottle of it on our table that was magically refilled.

 hot chocolicious!!

The best was the wondrous hot chocolate. Yum.

I thought about eating more because I was still a little hungry, but my muscles were starting to scream and I was afraid the longer I sat, the more likely I’d never be able to get up.

After I carefully stood up, (in much pain), and made it to the car, (with much hobbling), I made it home and sank into a very warm Epsom salt bath. 🙂

Between the comfort food at Kitchen 324 and the salt bath, it was extremely easy to take a much-needed nap.
