Marathoner Is Proof the Mediterranean Diet Works

A look at the sights and sounds of Roman culture as Philadelphia leaders visit the Vatican.

On Sunday we got detoured by a marathon because all the streets around our hotel -- the Hotel Minerve -- were blocked off. Same situation around major points of interest in this ancient city so we ended up walking about a mile-and-a half each way, with some heavy gear.

And at the end of the day, walks this adorable man, who'd run the marathon!

Look at those incredible calf muscles and how 'bout that smile.

I felt like a lightweight. I guess I could've hit the gym after that but instead, a few hours later I ended the log day with a full plate of prosciutto, mozzarella, olive oil and some red wine.

Seemed like the Mediterranean diet was working pretty well for him!
