Hooray! (Vote for me)

Even though it is Monday, I'm pretty excited. A lot of good things are coming down the pike (what the crap IS a pike anyway? I always thought it was a fish....) for me. Here is a sampling:

  • I had one of my better runs in recent memory on Saturday. I cranked out 12 miles in 1:36 - which is right at a 8:00 pace. Score. I was run/biking with my wife which probably helped a lot. What also helped was the fact that my legs didn't feel like they were going to fall off. You know, which is nice. I have been icing and rolling my legs like crazy - which I think is finally paying some dividends.
  • I am pretty sure I am going to run a little base fitness test 5K on Friday night. This will be my first night time race which will be fun. I'll admit though, I'll have to hold off of the lunch time 6-pack of bud that I normally throw down make sure I stay hydrated throughout the day since I normally don't drink any water for races shorter than 10K.
  • Work is finally getting interesting again. I've been in a bit of a slump, but I've been pulled in a few directions that will keep me engaged at least for a few weeks.
  • Finally, I am in the finals for a Last Mile Brewing technical Tshirt from Jamoosh and Lady J. That ridiculous FAKE half marathon race report that I posted a few days back was my 'entry'. Go over to his post http://lastmilebrewing.blogspot.com/ and vote for Adam (me). There are honestly quite a few other funny reports to read through, but in the end, a vote for Adam is like a vote for baby seals. You wouldn't kill a baby seal by not voting for me, would you?

I must admit... MCM Mama was really tempting...she blogged about a race where I live! I had never even seen her blog until this contest!

But DON'T you worry. There was no way my vote was being cast for anyone but Adam. Andre was one of my favorite movies as a kid. And you quoted Michael Scott. Two things that trump Arlington, VA. THE END. Thanks everyone else for playing ;) Hope you win!

In the East, a "pike" is a highway. I guess they have trouble spelling "Turnpike", so they just shorten it.

For your 5K test, think you are totally discounting the carb loading properties of that six pack. Yeah the alcohol may dry you out, but what the heck - it's only 5K. Think back to your college days Adam!

Ha ha! Good luck! Nice to see things are back on track.
