Can a McDonalds Diet Power Your Marathon Training?

Posted Sep 02 2012 5:44am

While doing a little research related to McDonalds and whether it was healthy, I stumbled on this story about Joe D’Amico , a fellow Chicago area runner who did a 30 day McDonald diet leading up to his attempt to run the Los Angeles Marathon.

It seems like it was pretty big news at the time. I wonder how I missed it.

Anyway, he managed to complete his feat and even set a PR with an impressive time of 2:36:14. (Blasted runners!)

So, I guess he proves that you can eat McDonalds every day and remain healthy, especially if you are training for a marathon.

Incidentally, he also raised $29,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Great job Joe!

Now, I wonder if he would be interested in going for the Joggling Marathon World Record. hmmmm
