Ramping it back up; Just in time to taper it back down

Disney Marathon around Mile 23

I'm hitting a nice stride in post-Disney Marathon/pre-Mercedes Marathon training, and now have less than 3 weeks until race day in Birmingham.

I'll be running a 20 miler (or so) with Speedy Dave on Saturday morning, and that will be the only 20+ mile long run I'll get in before race day. I should have time to grab a couple of 16-18 milers in the next 2 weeks, so I'll be ready.

And on a more serious note...
Little nuggets o' deliciousness

I've also discovered that I am addicted to the Hostess white powdered donuts that come in a bag at the grocery store. I can't seem to stop thinking about them, and I have been eating about 2 bags per week now. I don't typically eat junk/garbage such as this, but I believe they have crack in them, and I am therefore hooked.

I may need a donut intervention.


  1. I am so addicted to these that I can't even go near them at the store...ok maybe not that bad but do not put an open bag near me! They are just so yummy and sweet! Good luck on your 20 miler!

  2. Sounds like your training is spot on for race day. I believe our bodies tell us we need something that's in food like that and therefore the craving never stops until the need has been satisfied. This can take very long...

  3. Great now I want one. Nice training runs.

  4. Oh no, I thought i had those arn donuts out of my life and no I see them and want them ;)! Crack interesting theory.

    Sounds like you're going to be in good shape for your next race!

  5. Sorry guys for the accidental reintroduction of the crack donuts into your lives ! LOL

    They say openness and honesty is the first step toward recovery, so I had to give it a shot, right ?


  6. It looke like you run enough to counteract the crack donuts!!
