Training for endurance events means you can eat whatever you want, right?
Not quite. Ask any marathoner who’s gained weight over the course of their training, and they’ll kindly inform you otherwise. But run 20 miles in a single session and inevitably “runger” (aka hunger caused by running) will set in.
It’s that insatiable feeling when you decide you can — and should! — eat everything in sight, immediately. And in those precious post-run moments, you manage to undo that 2,000-calorie burn by eating an entire 2,320-calorie pizza.
