Wow, Only a Hunert Left! Update!

Check it out, 99 days until freedom! Then what? Hey, Hey, Sport, can't ask that question yet, how about 27 days and 22 hours until Western States? That's the only thing on which to concentrate now!

How am I getting ready? Well, evidently it's good to build your tolerance to alcohol poisoning! That's what Chase and SaraLee are training me to do. Oh, and we are doing 26 in the mountains today, I'll let you know how that works out.

I'll update this complete with pictures later, exciting!

It's a fact, I'm a flatlander. It's a fact that I'm a flatlander that lives at sea level. It's a fact that I'm a flatlander, living at sea level that needs to lose a couple of pounds!

That being said, wow! It's beautiful out here. Weather, perfect. You want mountains, yeah, they got 'em. I did really well for about 19 miles today, really felt great, the only problem was we ran 23, so about 4 miles there weren't much fun. But I never do well the first day of real running at altitude, and I gotta think the mass ounces of beers didn't help. I'd say tomorrow will be better, but we're going out tonight, and I am not going to be a wet blanket. I believe my trip to Denver won't be complete unless I take a drunken bus ride with the Chaser and his awesome wife Saralee.

That's whats on tap, the is here, I wish you were beautiful, and the training, superb!

Beer is good. Scotch is good. Running is... something I'm trying to endure.

Superdave, can't stress this enough: Hydrate.

I find Miller Lite, Coors Lite, or any of the area's fine craft beers make for excellent hydration.

and at altitude, hydrate even more. Andy did great, I'm teaching him to hydrate.

Star said...

I don't know how you guys do it. It makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it. So have one for me!

SD: don't listen to them. Beer (if you call Miller Lite, Coors Lite, or anything "lite," BEER) isn't on the list of healthy things to drink. Remember, they are pushers.

Hey Star, that's funny, and once again, I agree with you (but, pushing cookies on a dude with a big old sweet tooth, oh, that's fine! :-)

superdave524 said...

Ange, that Star can flat bake a cookie! But I been pretty good this week, y'all. Now sweets the last few days, even though I got icecream in the freezer (and frankly, not a heck of a lot else). I'll eat some tomorrow. Figure I'll split the difference between Chase and Star's dietary preferences and have beer cookies.

Arlene said...

Forgive my stupidity, but for a moment I thought that Saralee was a pound cake and you slipped on the diet!

Party on!

Star said...

Beer cookies...? Hmmm, let me work on that one.

Chase Squires said...

Pushers! I take offense!

(Psst, Dave, c'mon over, the first one's free ...)

And then I'll happily trade sex for beer (er, I mean six, that's six dollars, or six.... ok, I mean I'm happily married.. no really! I am that one guy when people say, "you know I don't really know anybody that's happily married, well, if you know me, you know at least one! Thanks Saralee, I hope you don't read A-Man's blog, but if you do, you're the best :)

AndyMan said...

Ok, Chase, that's real sweet, I just threw up in my mouth... Kidding, these two are the greatest people and the greatest hosts (yeah, I just earned another brewski there!)

Chase Squires said...

Okay, he got me, left self signed on ... dammit, SuperD, what are we going to do.
