Phew, now that we got that disclaimer out of the way, let’s talk running and eating. This week, I handed my boyfriend Dean Karnazes’ “Ultra Marathon Man.” When I was training for my marathon last summer, I read all of his books. He’s truly inspirational and just reading each page makes you want to go out for a run. His words “just put one foot in front of the other” got me through the 2012 Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, CA last October.
