52 weeks/52 half marathons/No carb loading!

it's gonna happen!
I begin on Oct 20.

My plan is to complete each race without consuming energy drinks or gels, bananas, bagels or any other form of carb porn that's offered before or after each event.

I will not be attending the often advertised "all you can eat pasta" dinner the night before each race.

No sampling of carb porn (and there is always lots of samples) at the race expos where I pick up my numbers.

Most races I'll do in a fasted state. I've done several half marathons with just a cup of pre-race coffee as fuel. Well, that plus the thousands of stored fat calories my body is burning.

Although my husband is skeptical, I'm confident that I can do this. I know that being fat-adapted is better than being a sugar burner. Now I'm going to prove it!
