It's Really Happening Now

On Wednesday we had the newbie meeting for the 2009 Run for Research team. A few dozen of us got together for the first time to hear about running a marathon and liver disease. Amazingly I learned how much the two were objectively related.The liver is one of the body's primary storage containers for glycogen, and, through glycongenesis, it turns glycogen into glycose so it can be used by things like muscles when they're doing things like running a marathon. It would be impossible to run a marathon, or take part in any kind of endurance sport, if your liver wasn't in good working condition. Good thing mine is, eh?
