I also feel that by trying to make good nutritional choices, my running performance will be enhanced. Maybe I won't be as tired. Or have enough energy to sprint that last half mile. At the very least I won't feel like a bag of rocks is in my stomach while running.
On the flip side, because I eat all these fruits and veggies AND run, I feel justified in eating waaaaaay too many sweets. My sweet tooth is a little out of control sometimes. Well, a lot of the time. Like if there is anything mint chocolate around. Or if I find a stray M&M on the floor. Pathetic I know. It's best just not to buy it in the first place and then I won't be tempted. And run lots. Because I think - wow - I just ran four miles... that's equal to around 400 calories... so, like four cookies? Or a very large ice cream. Self control is so very hard.
Do you run to eat or eat to run? A little of both?
