Twizzlers! Fig Newtons! Candy Corn!
What do you need after 20 miles of running? Well, sugar of course. I went out to the Marine Corps Marathon this past weekend with the running group I belong to, DC Road Runners, and passed out all kinds of sugar laden snacks to keep the runners going through that last 10k.
Twizzlers seemed to be pretty popular, as did Fig Newtons. The candy corn was a surprising hit and got a lot of laughs from runners who were surprised to see Halloween candy on the course.
I'll be out there for the next marathon in DC - the National Marathon in March. Hopefully someone will be out there with Twix bars. I do like me some Twix bars.
