90 Days Down, 10 to Go!
I saw a post about this guy in Milwaukee (where else?) that just reached 500 days of running and beer drinking--one beer minimum, one mile minimum. That seems heroic! He's beating me by about one full year...but I can catch up! Bet he doesn't run ultras.
Well, I better stay grounded and just keep my eye on the prize...100 days. No more, no less...for now. When March 3 rolls around I can make a decision about the future. Today is day 90. Tomorrow is 91. And so the count continues. I'm shooting for 100 days.
Today is another special day...MARDI GRAS!!! One of the best days of the entire year. Brings back childhood memories of Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. Good old New Orleans! Laissez les bon temps roulez! I already have my king cake...let the festivities begin!
Maybe for Ash Wednesday I'll give up the run streak. Nope. Give up running shoes? Maybe. Give up beer? No. Lent can wait. Today we celebrate. Running. Life. Liberty. Happiness. Whatever. Enjoy Fat Tuesday!
