I'm not one of these people who runs and eats healthy. I get that if I did I'd probably lose weight and probably be faster. I don't have horrible eating habits all the time (although admittedly they aren't the best), but if I can't indulge in some ice cream every now and then what's the point in running?!?
One of the most interesting things I've found in traveling and running is how many calories I must burn on vacation. (I'm not a calorie counter so I can really only speculate.) We do a lot of walking and sightseeing in addition to my running, so I'm generally on the go the entire trip. That's why I get to enjoy things like key lime martinis, Dunkin' Donuts cappuccinos, a good Cabernet and butternut squash tortellini. My theory is that running these towns keeps me skinny (reason #673 to register for a race and book a trip!)
