If a genie gave you three wishes, what would you wish for? Along with, "Did you watch Boy Meets World last night?", this was a popular question in the 90s. Who am I kidding? It still is. Our world is wish-obsessed. Make a wish when you blow out a candle. Wish upon a star. Oh, it's 11:11? You better make a wish. #wishing
I forgot to mention one of the most important reasons why I'm running a half-marathon tomorrow. Have you ever wished that you could eat anything your heart desires without gaining a pound? French toast with a side of six-pack, please. Or maybe you've wished that you could be Michael Phelps for a day. Well, that's the same thing. The sexy Olympic swimmer eats up to 12,000 calories a day while training. While I don't plan on eating even a third of that intake, I am definitely going to go off on carbs this weekend. It's called carbo-loading and it's encouraged. Need a reason to run a half-marathon? This is it.
