    I don't always drink during a run, but when I do I choose Gatorade.

                I have been dry since February 13th.  I will have a one night stand with booze on April 21st and again on May 5th.  Other than that I will not drink until after my goal race ends June 3rd.


                I don't always abstain from alcohol, but when I do, I prefer to plan my relapses.

                      Oh, it won't be easy. When I spend time with him, I get a warm, fuzzy feeling. But here's the thing....he's not supportive of my training. He makes me want to stay in bed when I should be out running. Sometimes I think he knocks me around, because I wake up with a killer headache after a night with him. And when I'm with him, he coerces me to say and do things that aren't typical of me. He's just bad news for me.

                                I'm carrying around 15 or so unwanted lbs. that say yes. Not exactly how many of those lbs. are from the beer itself, and how many are from the late night Taco Villa stops on the way home from drinking beer. Either way, I blame beer.
