It’s a good thing I bought a generous slice of paté at Espalion’s market. Not only did it make a wonderful picnic lunch while watching sheep graze; but, it also sustained me when I under counted today’s walk and ran out of water. It did seem to provide more zip than Gu (runner’s energy food). It definitely had a finer taste than Gu. Would paté work as energy food for a marathon? Tips for those running Monday’s Boston Marathon.
