Last week I burned 49 Twinkies. (FORTY NINE!!!)
I ran 65 miles which is the most I have ever done in one week. So just for fun I added up how many calories I burned which totaled 7,381.
This is the equivalent of 49 Twinkies! Running helps justify my consumption of junk food. Typical thoughts I have throughout the day include:
Morning: "Mmmm, those cookies on the counter look amazing! Go ahead, have one. No, have two! I just ran eight miles!"
Afternoon: "Mountain Dew is not good for me. But I'm going to drink some anyway. After all, I ran eight miles this morning. Better grab that pack of Hostess donuts while I'm here at the gas station."
Evening: "Dang Gina, an Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen sounds incredible. Go for it. Remember, you ran eight miles this morning!"
Do you use running to justify bad habits?
