Christy Turlington loves 'carb-loading'

Christy Turlington is enjoying marathon training as she gets to "carb load".

The supermodel is currently getting in shape ahead of the New York City Marathon. She's taking part in the 26.2 mile race on November 6 alongside nine friends and has found the work outs surprisingly enjoyable.

"One thing you have to do is carb-loading. That is something I had always heard about but never really knew what it involved," she told WWD. "It's kind of nice to say you have to eat carbs. That's my job right now."

The star is running the marathon to benefit her organisation Every Mother Counts, which aims to ensure new mothers and their children remain healthy.

She's already secured sponsorship from Maybelline New York and several other brands.

Christy has always liked running, but has never been a fan of long distance. Until she started training the most she'd ever covered was six miles, but she's sure she'll manage to complete the whole course.

As it stands the star has already raised $70,000.
