Slumber Party

I am exhausted.  I thought I would get back from my last race and be ready to party like a rock star, but alas, my bed is the only venue I’m interested in.

Today I was supposed to meet some people from Advocare at a product show they put on in Seattle, but I fell asleep four hours before it happened and didn’t wake up in time.  Oops.

Pre-race meal

Next week is Thanksgiving, and I’m debating whether to race a 5k Turkey Trot.  My fitness is superb right now, but at the same time I’m yearning for some down time.  Last time I ran a 5k I PRed after staying up the entire night at a U2 concert drinking an eggnog milkshake from Jack ‘N the Box at 3am.  If that’s my PR, then I should be able to extend my season a week and a half to prove I’m better than that.  I just need a mental push.  Does anyone have a corny joke to get me back in the game?

My good luck present for 2006 Worlds.

  1. Two potatoes in an oven. One turns to the other and says, “it’s hot in here.” The other potato says, “Whoaah! a talking potato!”

  2. how do you fall asleep so easily? I wish I could do that. This post has too many things included that I can’t have and that isn’t fair! It makes me hungry just looking and reading it.
