What I Ate Wednesday - Marathon Edition

Another awesome edition of What I Ate Wednesday. As promised, this is what I ate the day of my first marathon!
First up was breakfast:

When we got to the start line, I ate a banana while I was waiting for the race to start. During the race, I had four of these:

And lots of water. After the 32k mark, I drank Gatorade as well.
When the race was over:

I ate a plain bagel and apple and drank a water. We also stopped for one of these:

I actually wasn't that hungry for the rest of the day. We had friends coming over for a dinner celebration and I had a quick snack before they came:
And then indulged in some well deserved beverages:

We ordered dinner as there was no way I was cooking:
And enjoyed the lovely desert that my friends brought:

Once everyone went home and I was relaxing on the couch, I took advantage by enjoying one of my all time favorite snacks along with lots more water:

And that is what I ate the day I ran my first marathon, May 6th, 2012. You can read all about the race here!
