The Second No L!

The first No L came last weekend. I went up to S. Carolina to be best man at SuperDave's wedding, and what a wedding it was. It was a happy affair. It felt right. It was much better than another wedding I recently attended. Two Antenna got married and the wedding was just ok (but, the reception was GREAT!)

Anyway, I wanted to use the trip to SC as a chance to run some hills and enjoy some cooler weather, alas, I was under the weather, and with a little coaxing, I even went to the doctor. I was stoked because this Doc is a former National Champion Triathlete. He trained with and beat the likes of Scott Tinely, Dave Scott and Mark Allen. I knew he was going to tell me running was the perfect cure for my Sinusitis. Sadly, Dr. Sports Medicine tells me, you NEED to take 3 days off. Do NOT train until you are clear of this infection, or else you will keep the infection and Andy Barrett will beat you by 3 hours in Alabama. What? Three hours? Hey, Doc, What's up? Andy B just ran a 100 in Arkansas, he won't beat me by more than 1.5 hours! Well, says doc, if you run 30 miles in South Carolina he will.

Darn, I still got no L. That's ok, I'm going to be at Croom this weekend with the hunters. I will either leave there with an L or an arse full of buckshot (or both).

Here's a little tribute to my struggle with the second No L:

Well, Andy girl finally posted something, and it was stupid! So you didn't run big deal. If not running was a big deal than I wouldn't BE, and I am...

Another Running joke. Anyway, the wedding was a lot better with the AndyMan in it.
