Crossing the finish line feels as satisfying as knowing all the right answers on any given Jeopardy round; there really is no other feeling like it in the world.  Here are the top 5 things you should plan on doing immediately following the finish line.

-Do a Little Dance

When you complete a run, you deserve to express through jerky rhythmic movements just how good it feels. We get inspiration for our finish-line moves every time we watch a touchdown dance; pick out your favorite here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GV8jsAVJmao

 

-Hug Your Finish Line Friends

These could be your friends waiting for you at the finish line or the new friends you just made getting to the finish line. Share your enthusiasm and put your arms around someone, or high-five if sweaty hugs aren’t your thing.

 

-Eat Whatever You Desire

You just burned roughly a 100-calories-per-mile run, so if you’ve been denying yourself that ice cream cone, now’s your chance to enjoy it guilt-free.

 

-Buy Yourself a Finish Line Gift

You just accomplished a feat of mental and physical strength so treat yo’ self! We plan on grabbing these Nike Flyknits after our next finish line to keep us motivated with our running regime.
