Food on the run: where to eat along the 2009 L.A. Marathon route
If you think it's grueling to run 26.2 miles, imagine how it feels to endure four, five ... eight hours of being supportive under the broiling Los Angeles sun. (Distance running: It makes golf look like a high-impact sport.) Fortunately, Joshua Lurie, the man behind local food blog Food GPS, has compiled a list of 77 eateries -- complete with a handy Google map -- along the 2009 L.A. Marathon route. Your boyfriend/best friend/mom probably won't stop for a mulita and a Belgian waffle, but that doesn't mean you can't. Because for some of us, a food marathon is the only kind of race we'll ever run.
