Tonight I’m loading up on carbs in preparation for tomorrow’s big marathon. The Waddell & Reed Marathon is a huge event in Kansas City and I look forward to it every year.
Um, no. I’m not running in it. Are you kidding? I could barely get through my 5K race last weekend.
No, I like to cheer on the marathoners. And cheering takes a lot of effort and stamina. I’m not kidding. You try standing on a street corner, in the cold, at the butt crack of dawn and clapping your hands non-stop for two hours. Its tough work and you can’t really train for it. You just have to wing it. And carbing up the night before definitely helps.
