Eating, racing, religion collide

While many religions have strictures against eating certain things at certain times, this article recently posted in the Washington Post has an interesting take on it. A prospective marathoner who is Jewish is planning to eat a lot of potatoes at a "carb-loading seder" to prepare for the race.

The article presents the religious issues well-integrated with the dietary and exercise ones, discussing things like guilt, observance of various types of Jews and rabbinical permission.
