Carbo Loading at the Village Bakery


With my next marathon less than two weeks away, it's time to start thinking about carbo loading to avoid bonking and the Village Bakery in Lake Placid has plenty of carbohydrates to choose from.


The Village Bakery bakes fresh Italian loaves, French baguettes, boules and petit pans daily.


There is a weekly bread schedule with specialty loaves on certain days. My favorite day would be Saturday because of the tasty focaccia and olive bread that comes out of the oven.

Olive You!

It's not just bread, there is an assortment of muffins, turnovers, and chocolate croissants available too. I cannot tell a lie, even if I wasn't about to run 26.2 miles, I'd still find myself at the bottom of Mill Hill at the Village Bakery. Who can resist fresh baked goods?

Their brownies are AMAZING!
My verification word is "Rocks". As in "The flavor of their brownies rocks!"

Now I know why you and Drew are such heavy weights!

I didn't realise you would be running a marathon in a town so close by (two towns over), I'll have to come by and cheer. Adam is doing Cape Cod tomorrow so he's not doing Manchester this year.

My leg still sucks.
