Halloween Fit Tips From Sarasota Music Half Marathon's John Korff

Coconut Telegraph

Sarasota Music Half Marathon is almost here and John Korff, one of the race's founding partners and running guru extraordinnaire, will be providing his invaluable Yoda-esque tips each month to help you get into perfect shape for the 'moving party' coming to SRQ this spring. Here are Korff's tips for keeping lean this spooky weekend: "Weight watchers beware this Halloween. A small bag Skittles means nine minutes of jumping jacks, a 3 Musketeers bar is 26 minutes of Pilates, and you’re down for 25 minutes of  yoga for a Peppermint Patty. If you run to eat, then the Sarasota Music Half Marathon is for you.  You can a eat girl scout cookie at mile 8 in Cherokee Park (80 cals/cookie), a handful of M&M’s at mile 10 in Selby Gardens (25 cals/grab), drink a beer at mile 12 (75 calories per cup) or feast on the post-race brunch (700 calories).  But you’ve earned it and burned it so enjoy," notes Korff.
