Really random post race food question

DD is doing Girls on the Run with her school and they are doing a practice 5K today.  They want to make it as similar to a real race as possible so the girls know what to expect at the real 5K.  I am in charge of bringing bagels as part of the post race food.  Now, my totally random question-it's ususally just plain bagels, not cream cheese, correct?   I picked up the bagels this morning and it just now occurred to me that I don't have any cream cheese.  I don't think they typically have it after races, but I rarely pay attention to the post race food.  I'm generally not hungry immediately after running so I've never really noticed the food.   

Re: Really random post race food question

  • Sadly, yes. It's usually plain, cold, untoasted, un-schmeared bagels. Which are gross, especially for someone who just finished a race.

    Orange slices, granola bars, juice boxes, and chocolate milk are all much better IMO.

  • I think I've only gotten post race cream cheese once.

    I was actually thinking about the lack of fixins for the bagels at my last race.   at least give a girl some peanut butter or something.  who wants to eat a plain dry bagel?  how did this start?

  • I would kill for cream cheese after the race, but I always just assumed it was because they didn't want to mess with knives and such?  Do they sell tubes of cream cheese (like mustard)? That would be ideal. 

    And now I am hungry for a bagel and cream cheese!

  • Oooh, yes - chocolate milk is the best!

    I don't get the dry bagel thing, either. So unappetizing.

  • they do have cream cheese packets (like mustard) the one and only race I did with cream cheese had them. 
  • I usually grab a bagel but take it home and eat it the next day toasted w/ pb, butter or cream cheese.  My favorite post race food is chocolate milk, water and homemade cookies.  The half I did in March had so many varieties of freshly made cookies.  I was in heaven. Big Smile
