Running for Bacon

There are many reasons to run: health, weight control, muscle tone, fun, and bacon.*

Last week, Katherine & Caroline joined the mile club at their school. After determining the number of miles they'll need to run each week to meet their goal by the end of May, they went to work. Caroline has logged 7 miles so far, and Katherine 4.

Morgan, determined to prove to her father that she can run the Charlottesville 10-
miler, has outrun everyone, logging 4 miles yesterday alone. You should see her out there running around the track like there's nothing to it. Watching her work out brings back vague memories of my own early running many years ago!

Anyway, back to bacon.

Traditionally, after every race there's a selection of good fruit, bananas**, bagels, sports drinks & water - all for the taking. What you will hardly ever find, though, is real food. Real food means IHop for pancakes, french toast, omelets, coffee and...bacon.

The Exception: David's been training for the inaugural OBX marathon to be held in November. I'm thinking we'll have to pass on the bacon and head for seafood.

*My friend Cat & her friends coined the slogan "I run for bacon" several years ago when we were all training for the Charlottesville Women's 4-miler.

**not to be confused with good fruit.
