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.

Anyone ever completely quit drinking altogether in preparation for a marathon? Did it make a difference? Some of my favorite drinks pack a bit of a punch, so I'm thinking that even one might be a problem as I up the mileage.
This running thing really does mess up my drinking schedule.
My personal opinion is that running hung over gives an awesome HTFU opportunity. What's better than smelling alcohol seeping from every pore of your body as you stagger along the course, while your head feels like a spear has been inserted through it, and your innards are in total revolt mode?
