Anyone got a carrot? Anyone?

Somehow, in my years running, I've actually become more health conscious when it comes to eating. I don't remember the last time I had a Snickers bar or a Milky Way. Occasionally I will eat a snack size packet of M&M's. And who doesn't like Hershey Kisses from time to time? Also, I gave up dark cola's (e.g. Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper) cold turkey they day I started running. I still eat pizza, lots of pizza, and jump at the chance to eat a Jack Daniel's burger or steak. It's the obvious stuff that I steer clear of now. As much as I would love to take down a Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake, I just don't do it. It's a small price to pay now if it'll help me live a longer, more healthy, active life. Besides, as a runner and triathlete, I experience highs above and beyond that provided by aforementioned cheesecake.

The weather is still awesome although the forecast is calling for a rapid cooldown by mid-afternoon. This mornings 10-miler may have been the last warm-weather run until April/May.
