Last week I wrote about the need for carrots as incentive to work out.
Kate Dixon writes to agree — sorta.
“I ran a 5K in Raleigh on May 1st called Race of Grace,” writes Dixon, who when she’s not running is executive director of the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. “The prizes are cakes home baked by members of the churches that organize the race. Anyway, I have never been so motivated to run harder than I would have in hopes of winning a prize.”
Good point: A home-baked cake beats a carrot any day.
So? Did Kate run fast enough for cake?
“I did – a chocolate cherry cake to be exact,” she says. “It was absolutely delicious.”
