Drinkers with a Running Problem

Zoomie... (Read 376 times)


I've got a fever...

    On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.


    Needs more cowbell!

      Thanks, dood. You're good peeps. But I'll not be back. I've contemplated leaving there for a while, now. The recent atmosphere suggesting that "real" runners don't use hydration belts, bring phones, run slowly (gee, like I have a choice in the matter Roll eyes ), or wear skirts just made the decision for me. It's hard to not take that shit personally after a while, since it seems I have more factors that make me feel like an outsider over there than an insider. If it were just that thread I could brush it off, but lately it's become an overwhelming theme--"if you aren't like us, then you're not one of us." Whatevs. I was done with that sort of attitude 20 years ago.

        Well, I'm very sorry you feel that way. You're one of my favorite posters here at RA, so I'm just glad you didn't disappear from the site altogether like Scout and JK.

          Thanks man...back atcha. Nah, I'm not going to leave the entire site in a snit over one group--just leave that group. I'm not a flouncer, just not willing to subject my online reading to stuff that pisses me off. The rest of RA is "safe." Smile

              Would another mini-keg of Oberon count? Evil grin I wonder how sick drinking a full one would make me...I think it's equivalent to 14.5 bottles. A half of one of those mini-kegs would likely have me puking my guts out. Tongue

                  Aw, that's no way to treat a yummy beer...bouncing it off the bottom of your stomach like that! If you want to drink 14.5 beers, at least let it be Old Milwaukee or PBR! Arla

                    What's wrong with Old Milwaukee? Evil grin In all honesty, though... it's my favorite beer in the "extremely cheap" category.

                      Heh...I have sort of happy/sad memories of Old Mil from frosh year in college...BIG cups...lotsa fun. Until my stomach decided to turn inside-out after about 3 (I've always been a lightweight). Dead

                        Drinking is like running. You have to HTFU. Slow down and drink more to build a solid base before you do "speedwork." It sounds like you just need to do more base "mileage", Zoomie.
