Running In The Cleveland Marathon This Sunday? Rascal House has you covered! Recharge your carbs at your favorite Rascal House location with delicious hometown favorites like our zesty pasta marinara, or one of our famous pizzas! A while back, we posted some of our Rascal advice for participating in Cleveland’s 36th annual St. Malachi Run, so we find it appropriate that we repost that advice for those of you planning on running in the race!
“1. Train for the Race! In order to finish the race in record time, you should be training your body well in advance, but if you just decided to join the race today and you need to be able to run a full marathon by Sunday, we have a pro tip to jump start your four day training program. Start at your home, and run to your nearest Rascal House. The thought of pizza tempting you will be great motivation and might even make you run faster! Once you arrive at your destination, you can order your favorite Rascal House pizza (if you didn’t already order online) and use it as nourishment for all of your hard work. The pizza will also give you a boost of energy for your run back home. Over the next five days leading up to the race, continue this regimen. If you’re feeling ambitious, switch it up by running to a Rascal House that is further away from your home.
2. While physically preparing yourself for the race is important, it is just as important to mentally prepare and motivate yourself. If you need an extra push to complete the race, imagine some Rascal House BBQ Chicken Wings waiting for you at the finish line. Talk about a record mile…
3. It’s the big day! The race is finally here and it’s time to fuel up. As you’ve probably realized over your 4 day training program, Rascal House pizza makes the perfect pre-run meal with plenty of nutrients to keep you strong throughout the race. Make sure you stay hydrated as well. Drink plenty of water before and during the race.
To all of those participating in the Cleveland Marathon this Sunday, be safe and good luck from your pals here at the Rascal House HQ.
P.S. While we do believe our pizza is great motivation, be sure to follow proper training routines from a certified trainer or doctor.”
