Paul Ryan loves a challenge -- but a Johnson's Corner cinnamon roll?
Paul Ryan is a marathon man. The Republican vice-presidential candidate runs them (although his time is in dispute) and he's been on a marathon campaign trip through all the swing states, including Colorado.

Johnson's Corner, which opened sixty years ago, has been renowned for its cinnamon roll from the start. And even though the truck stop underwent a major renovation seven years ago, the cinnamon rolls have not been trimmed down for these health-conscious times.
The rolls are so popular that they're now even sold at local 7-Eleven outlets. Where a quick look at the label reveals that these sugar-packed packages carry a hefty 1,140 calories.
Ryan was ready for the challenge of taking on the Obama-Biden team -- but is he ready to tackle one of these?
