Loony Lunchbox

loonylunchbox

The Loony Lunchbox is endearingly named after the runners we’re feeding. We think that the people running with Mainly Marathons (including us) are a little loony, like who runs a 183.4 miles in a week?! Well, many of you do and you need nutritional food to fuel you on your way to completing those miles. We’ll be serving unique options daily and, when possible, two different options each day – everybody loves second breakfast!

Even though Norm is retired, his legacy will live on. Whether it be his motivational cheers of “less talking, more walking” or the magical powers he used to make his ever-so tasty French toast, the legacy of his ladle will not fade! We obtained some of his secret recipes, which we had to trade a small fortune for and swear an oath of silence. So, with these secret recipes and a helping of our own homemade dishes, we hope to fuel you as you reach your goals. However, if your goal is to enjoy your time on the course, then you should definitely stop by the Loony Lunchbox and get seconds or thirds!

Each recipe that we serve was selected based on the nutrition needed for endurance events along with its convenience to eat on the go. Please give us feedback on the food options you enjoy and those that you don’t. Here’s a list of some of the food options you’ll see at our series:
