My favorite thing after a good run is this awesome protein shake. This recipe is a great combination of protein, carbohydrates, and sugars to fuel your body after a workout. Any kind of protein after a workout helps with the recovery of your muscles, and helps alleviate soreness. Try out this recipe, its delicious!
1 Scoop Whey Protein
1 TBS Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 Medium Banana
1 Cup Ice
*Note: You can add chocolate flavored protein too. I just prefer vanilla!
Toss in the ice first. Then add protein, almond milk, and banana into blender, and blend. Make sure the ingredients blend evenly. Enjoy!

Today is the the 43rd annual New York City Marathon! More than 43,000 are expected to be running this year! Since 1970, this particular marathon is one of the most famous races in the world. In 2012 the marathon was canceled due to hurricane Sandy, and with the city recovered, the race must go on! The NYC Marathon is also the biggest race since the bombing at the Boston Marathon. I can’t imagine preparing so hard for a race, and having something so drastic as a natural disaster or a terror attack get in the way. I’m sure energy is high, security is tight, and many will accomplish their goals!
