There’s this restaurant I’m definitely going to visit if and when I get to fly myself out of the country again. They specially designed to cater to marathoners or those who fuels themselves with complex carbohydrates.
Timpano Italian Chophouse, located at 7488 West Sand Lake Road, will be serving up a special all-inclusive “Marathon Menu” priced at $32, developed to keep in mind the many runners participating in annual Marathon January 6 – 8, 2012.

The hearty high carbohydrate three course meal includes Deconstructed Buratta & Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta (high carbs, low-fat and added protein); Lentil Soup packed with complex carbohydrates and Whole Wheat Pomodoro Pasta with a choice of Grilled Chicken or Salmon. Salmon provides added Omega 3 and fat to help slow down the use of carbohydrates for needed energy.
In addition to the regular menu, the Marathon Menu will be available to all diners for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and dinner starting at 4 p.m. on January 6, 7 & 8.
Post-Marathon, runners who bring in their race medals will receive a complimentary celebratory cocktail.
