McDonald’s Runner PRs at the LA Marathon

In a follow up to my previous post about Joe D’Amico’s attempt to eat McDonald’s food only for every meal for 30-days leading into the LA Marathon.  Joe D’Amico ran  2:36:14 in the LA Marathon setting a new personal record by 41 seconds, now the debate will begin as to whether this diet should be considered for athlete’s.

As some of you know as a coach I will never tell you how to eat (because of my habits) but what I will recommend is a well balance diet.  If you train as hard as Joe D’Amico does,  you could live on a diet of McDonald’s for a short period of time, but once you stop working out is when the problems will begin.  In an article written by Matt Fitzgerald he examines the diet and potential out comes.

Keep running!
