Poop Coffee and CSN Winner!!

I didn't run this morning - FAIL, but I have a good excuse....promise. Like I mentioned yesterday, this is my last week in San Jose, CA. It is tradition at the company I work for to go out for a dinner to end all dinners when you leave a project. I did that, annnd how. What followed was a collection of "firsts" that rivaled my first ever elbowy roll in the hay (yes, I just compared dinner to bumping uglies):


  • 3 types of Foie gras. (first time) Buttery, tasty...poor poor liver swollen ducks.
  • Steak. Let the animal killing continue.
  • Wine. Mmmmmmmmmm Def not the first time here
  • A nightcap of Kopi Luwak Coffee. (first time) Nothing died to produce this. FAIL


Kopi Luwak is the coffee that is eating by a little Asian rat thing, pooped out, and then brewed up into smooth dark goodness. Yes, I drank POOP coffee. You may have heard of this coffee only because it is known as "the most expensive coffee in the world". Lets just say that I have spent more on most 5K entries than I did for this 2 cup french press full of coffee.

How does this tie into running again?? Well, I had drank this coffee at around 9pm. That means that I was awake until 1am with more energy than Lindsey Lohan on meth. If you remember, my heart rate / energy level is already pretty high (last marathon I AVERAGED over a 180 bpm), so the caffeine sent me over the edge. When my alarm went off at 5:15 (after 4 hours of sleep) I reset it and went back to bed. 4 hours was not enough sleep for 6 miles of running. So, I'll do them tonight!

Anyone have any firsts lately?

--------------------------------------------

Now, on to our CSN contest winner!!! We had a really good number of entries for the CSN gift card giveaway. I used my trusty random number generator and out of the 92 entries received, Blaine @ Another Day, Another Run was the winner!! Check out his blog - he has an ENTIRE box (not case...BOX) of shot blocks and is looking for creative solutions for them. Please shoot me an email at TheBoringRunner at gmail.com and I'll put you in touch with the CSN folks and you can get your shop on.

Thanks to CSN for offering up this contest!

Chelsea said...

First time going 5-miles last night. Didn't run it all, but moved the whole time and I'll work up to 6 in two weeks!

Ace said...

better than poop steak or poop wine, I suppose?

Mike Russell said...

You drank poop...nice work man...

mommaof3ontherun said...

That sounds like potent stuff, LOL

Tiffany said...

Was the "FAIL" in the picture the fact that she thought an elephant was bigger than the moon or the fact that she thought those enormous sideburns looked good?

Teamarcia said...

Poop coffee and swollen liver in one sitting? Eeeew and eeeew.
Gotta think on the firsts.

Morgan said...

I'm still laughing my butt off at the poop coffee...

Pam said...

I ate some corn tonight. Maybe I could interest you in some corn in another...oh, 12 hours or so? Probably goes good with that coffee.

Cynthia O'H said...

I don't drink coffee, poop or any combination of the two. My dog, on the other hand, would likely be all over it....

Her Name is Rio said...

Wow- you're the first person I know who has tried that
"special" coffee! Seems like you should grow extra hair on your chest or something major after that!

track coach and adorable wife said...

Hey, I really appreciate the fail comments. That reminded me that my friend told me to check out failblog and we just spent a wonderful 30 minutes laughing at the greater failures of mankind. So thank you... from the bottom of my heart.

Andrew Opala said...

Adam, you were the first follower on my blog!

My wife doesn't even follow me!

Jamie said...

Good job drinking the poop coffee! I have more respect for you now. :) no average person would drink poop coffee like you did. Props.

Blaine said...

I won the contest?! That is so cool.

ShutUpandRun said...

Regular coffee makes me poop. If I drink poop infested coffee I can only imagine what would happen.

wendy_kresha@charter.net said...

OMG, Your blog never fails to make me fell better! read all of the posts, thanks for the smiles! And yes, chicks do dig men who shave their legs, btw : )

Emily said...

I did my first shot gun beer on Monday night. Yep, most people do that in High School or College. But it took RAGBRAI to come to town in order for me to do it.

Glenn Jones said...

It's nice to see that the Project Wrapup dinners are still happening. At least some of the good things haven't changed.

EricaH said...

Really poop coffee, really??? sounds a little to fear factor for my liking but you go you daredevil you.

Congrats to the winner!!!

Last time I had foie gras it tasted like eggs. And only eggs should taste like eggs. I'm turned off to it for the time being.

Anything new lately? Um, I tried to run two workouts back to back and it beat me up. It was 6 mile marathon pace run + 6 hill repeats. Ass = kicked.
