Of course I’m kidding about eating bars not-stop while running. That would lead to crappy, smelly results that no one around me would want to witness.
Denver will either be 90 degrees and I’ll do option #1, or snowing and 30 degrees in which case I’ll choose option #2. There is a saying around here that annoys the hell out of me, but it is true, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes.” Around here we can drop 40 degrees in no time, so it gets a bit nipply.
One saying I DO like is the motto of Team Marathon:
“Life isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.”
You may be wondering what Team Marathon is all about and how you can get involved. Team Marathon has 200 ambassadors nationwide. These individuals all “have passion and enthusiasm for living a healthy, well-rounded life and are involved in activities ranging from running, to cycling, to triathlon and other endurance sports.” Just like you and me, right?
Later this week, look for an interview I did with Richard Kalasky, a Team Marathon member, who went from overweight couch potato (325 lbs!) to a 185 lb stud who does triathlons and marathons. Hugely inspirational!
Aside from all of that healthy, balanced living, the team members have something else in common: they love Marathon Bars. I mean, who wouldn’t? If you haven’t had a MB, you might want to try one. They are a tasty treat, packed full of protein and vitamins. I know this because Team Marathon sent me a couple to try. And, yes, I ate them all in one sitting:
My favorite is the Protein Bar. This sucker is BIG and carries a whopping 21 grams of protein. I am so delicate I usually just eat half at a time, but it is a satisfying snack after a long workout.
There are also a couple of other varieties, equally as yummy:
The Energy Bar:
And the new Smart Stuff bar for you healthier types who want whole grains, fewer calories and some fiber (fart).
