McDonald’s marathon training.. Mcdonald’s on the run! Good Monday morning…
I saw an interesting article while grazing around google this morning. A 36-year-old man, Joe D’Amico, training for the Los Angeles Marathon vowing only to eat McDonald’s for the final 30 day’s of his training. http://mcrunner.com/
Joe appears to be a relatively talented runner aiming for a 2.36 at Los Angeles, he logs 100 miles a week and runs a 6 minute mile.
He is collecting money for the Ronald McDonald house, 1$ for each Facebook fan and on his charity page https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/mcrunner/lamarathon
From the article, http://olympiaconnections.com/blog/2011/03/11/the-mcrunner-man-training-for-marathon-eats-only-mcdonalds-for-30-days/, it doesn’t seem to be a publicity stunt, he is interested to see if it will make him faster!
He doesn’t supersize nor order Big Mac’s… He want’s to keep it healthy lol
Personally, I think doing this would make me ill. I love McDonald’s as much as the next runner but I have limitations. Didn’t the guy from Supersize me have huge health problems following his McDonald’s stunt?
Interesting experiment… I would be curious to see the outcome. Hope they have lots of outhouses, he may have to go really badly…
