It’s that time of year again: Around The Bay Road Race in Hamilton, Ontario!!  ATB, is the oldest road race in North America (yup, older than the Boston Marathon).  After all that hard work on foot (not to mention the months of training) us runners deserve some good post ATB grub!  I’m excited to share some of my favourite post race nosh on CHCH Morning Live (click here to watch segment).  From pizza and lasagna, to nutty snacks (paired with my fave Ontario Craft Beer: Midlands Butter Tart Ale) and a decadent sweet treat.  Happy Running and post race eating!!
