international m&m day

while march 1st is national m&m day, today is international m&m day. that's right, you canadians can join in on this one.

m&m face says mm(m) for m&m's
as most holidays are created to celebrate the joyous victory over trials and hardships, international m&m day is no different. i have made it 365.242 days without eating a single m&m which basically equates to the suffering of the great depression.

today we must make our forefathers & foremothers proud and indulge in that 56oz bag of m&m's.

m&m care package
care package from my old running partner to ensure the day is properly celebrated
if mars, inc. was publicly traded, yesterday would have been a good time to buy shares.

  10. This is hilarious. I actually had m&ms yesterday for the first time in ages. Now I want them again. I'll probably eat a bag and blame you, then forgive you because I have a HUGE (ummm 5 mile) race tomorrow and will surely need the extra calories to survive until the finish. :)

  13. I love that you are aware of multiple M&M holidays. And I want you to know that when I took a short break from eating super well after my last race (I stayed gluten free but cheated on the dairy a little) M&Ms was one of the few things I "cheated" with. So yummy. Coconut are my favorite but i love them all. Eat some for me today!
