Sean and I are signed up for the 2015 Big Sur Half Marathon in Monterey Bay. It’s four weeks away, and today’s training plan involved running 9 miles. Some people train for marathons and half marathons because they want to set personal records in their running times. I run because I like to eat. According to my Garmin watch, today’s 9-mile run burned up 946 calories.
We went out to eat afterwards, and I’m pretty sure my meal replaced a huge portion of those calories.
