Burning Calories — These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

January Running Total:

Distance: 311.02 kilometres

Time: 30:27:42

Calories Burned: 22,115!

I feel like one of those game show contestants who instead of winning $22,115 has just been given free-range on what he can eat up to 22,115 calories.

I could eat 9 whole apple pies. Or 96 orders of small fries from McDonalds. Or 184 drumsticks from Kentucky Fried Chicken. Or 233 Eggo Waffles. Or a dozen chocolate cakes, with frosting. Or 67 cups of chicken fried rice. Or 527 strips of bacon. Or 79 scoops of Pralines & Cream ice cream.  (source: http://www.fatsecret.com)


My partner and I are starting a tradition where we pick one day a year and on that day we will indulge in every food craving we’ve been resisting for the other 364 days. I think I may start making my list………

    Go for the bacon! Wow Rod that’s astonishing. But I guess for an ultra runner it’s business as usual!

    1. L O V E bacon………actually I could have 80 slices of bacon and mushroom pizza…………
