3.5 + 17

holy smokes i just checked the tcm website to see if there was anything new. i forgot about the countdown on the site: marathon is in 32 days! dang. i am not feeling ready. i was in a lot better shape last year. i guess i knew i would not be able to follow the schedule to the T this year, but nonetheless a small wave of panic has set in.

this weekend was the bachelor party. i met several folks at the sports bar near the 'dome before the gopher football game, then we headed over and met up with some others to watch the game in a suite (which my bro purchased and hooked us up with). thanks bro!

i had a lot of fun. it was nice to have everyone gathered together in one suite to chat and hang out while the game was going on in the background.

i think i had around 3.5 beers total plus one shot (or was it 2?). that's about as crazy as i get! i'm not a big alcohol drinker at all, which is probably quite shocking, ha ha. i was home by around midnight.

the following morning i got up around 6am and ran my 17 miles. i did not feel hung over, but i will say that every so often i did feel nauseous and had to slow down or walk. i had 1 gu before leaving the house and could not convince myself to take another one during the run. at one point i had a gu in my hand and then i put it back in my pocket. heh.

my fiance has had a couple wedding showers and has one more remaining before the wedding. we are getting all kind of gifts. i feel guilty about it. people are too generous.


  • So is the wedding before or after the marathon? Great job getting in the run in after your bachelor party!!! You're really handling all the planning and training so well!
