Cocoa Banana Muffins

This time last year I was the same number of days away from a marathon that I am right now.

Except that last year, there was a baking ban in effect. This year, there've been no baking ban proclamations, and as a workout -- as training -- I ran 24 miles, 20 of which were at 2008 race pace, got up the next morning and ran some more. Whereas after last year's event, I got up the next morning and could hardly move.

So I'm thinking that baking bans are a bunch of hooey. Despite having been teased for demolishing that apple spice cake, it's clear that baked goods are making me speedier.

I tried to have a baking ban once. It resulted in me devouring a cookie at whole foods before I even payed for it. Baking bans are silly. I might think differently if the last 10lbs of pregnancy weight is still around in a couple months :)

There should be a ban on baking bans.
