Following an 18.5 mile effort at the 2011 Ragnar Relay Las Vegas event, which was fraught with disorganization and just an overall lack of pure enjoyment, things turned from hectic to extremely crazy.
With an extremely successful 2011 Scoobies For Boobies fundraiser, I was kept very (or too) busy for close to three months. Working from 7am to 4pm at my day job, then heading to the shop to work until almost 1am on a regular basis took its toll. Add to that the demanding nature of the work, mind and body, I was, and still am, exhausted.
Now that the holiday season is over, a new year has arrived, on schedule I might add, it is time to get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, last week, I was the proud recipient of a moderately serious case of food poisoning. Since last Thursday, I have lost close to 20 pounds, or approximately 12% of my body weight. I didn’t have 2o pounds to lose!
With my stomach not throwing a fit when I eat, it won’t be long before I can try to regain my strength and the weight I lost.
On the list for the comeback caloric assault:
- Steak n Shake
- Five Guys Burgers and Fries
- Sura All You Can Eat Korean BBQ
- Firehouse Subs
- Capriotti’s Subs
- Ciao Pizza
- Badger Cafe
- Carlito’s Burritos
- Pop’s Steaks
- More as my stomach craves them.
That being said, if any restaurants would like to sponsor my insatiable stomach, we are open to discuss what food is available!
Once my strength is back, training has to start in earnest. I now have 10 months to prepare for my first full marathon, that’s right 26.2 miles! To make this a little more challenging, I have not ran since the RRLV event last October.
Have I bitten off too much? Guess we will see just how strong my will is come race day!
