An Ode To Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups As Race Fuel For Runners
Is there a sadder sight than this?
A recently demolished pack of Reese’s Cups. I ate these whilst walking up from work. They lasted all of 2 minutes.
Much like with running itself, I have a lot of trouble pacing myself with these sexy blasts of manna.
I’ve started eating Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in training for the marathon. They are fucking amazing for giving you energy and they are easy and delicious to eat.
Too many of the traditional energy bars have an awkward consistency that makes them inconvenient to eat on the go. I can practically eat these motherfuckers in a single bite and I never get any of it stuck in my throat.
Plus there’s nothing like tearing up a new packet of these during a half marathon and receiving disgusted looks from other runners/on-lookers which would seem to suggest “are you allowed to eat that?”.
New Exciting Methods Of Administration For Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups In Race
I need to devise some sort of top hat that I can fill with these cups that automatically dispense a cup out whenever I press a button in my hand.
That way they’d stay fresh, until needed and I’d have a stash that would be the envy of any sane runner on the planet.
Once I get better at long slow runs I think I’ll switch over to ultra running and use these half pound cups to fuel my races.
Not only would they be an excellent source of energy, but if anyone runs into me or hurls about at me, then I will not be ashamed to use Half Pound cup as a defensive weapon.
But why the hell would I want to do that? Would be a bad waste of good chocolate!
I’m pretty certain that if you were to hurl one of these cakes off a skyscraper then you’d make a crater in the pavement.
A delicious, peanut buttery crater.
