Comfort food helps deal with the restless feeling that can occur while you’re waiting for marathon day. Some fried chicken, potato salad, and a frosted half-moon cookie, to pick a meal totally at random since I would never eat anything as lacking in food value as that, oh no not me, can be just what you need to soothe a day’s worth of feeling that the race will never arrive. At least until the next day, when all the fats and sugars show up on the scale.
Yet Another Update: Late this morning, the BAA closed registration for the 2013 Boston Marathon, this time for reals.
