Hey, so you know that “marathon” (said with air quotes and a Chris Farley voice) that I said I was doing a while back? Well… it seems that time is passing by and, well, its only 16 days away. What? Time really should have stood still a little for me, but it didn’t and here I am a little over two weeks from Charlotte’s Thunder Road Marathon. So imagine my delight in serendipity when Lindsey Fisher posted that she would be heading up a 7 Day Clean Eating Challenge over on Facebook. How sweet of her to know that my eating has probably been less than clean as of late. I mean, when you run 20 miles at a time beer and burgers taste sooooooo good and then there are the extra zillion calories I have available to me. And the Rungries… do you know how hungry you are AFTER you run that many miles? Like for DAYS? If there is a bag of chips available when the rungries hit… they are mine. I guess she knew I needed some accountability in my life to maybe feel a little better while and after running 26.2 stupid miles. (I decided in training that running anything over about 13.1 is just stupid… utterly DUMB.)
So, I am in. Starting on Monday…. November 3. Ya wanna do it with me? You can read about it in this article – The Simple Elimination Diet That Could Change Your Life Forever. I will be doing something a little different as I generally eat Paleo so legumes are out for me. I think I will trade them for eggs.
Its only for 7 days. You can do anything for 7 days.
Come on… join me. It’ll be FUN.
