New Orleans

Epic City. Great food, legal to drink in public, great music, etc. Having a half marathon on a Sunday morning is a little sadistic, however, and my legs were cramping as I stood in my corral before running a single mile. I ran the first 10 miles with my friend's wife and then did the last 3.1 a little faster. I kept a 7:24 pace for that last stretch but we were so slow for the 10 miles that I only managed a 2:01 time. In the nearish future I'd like to run another one and shoot for something in the 1:40s. For that race, I won't drink vodka/car bombs/sake allll day the day before. Pushups were a total bust due to the fact that I was either drinking or running all the time. I did 60 on Friday morning, zero on Saturday, and 100 today in 2 sets of 50. Tomorrow I'm going to try out the ripdeck card game app that incorporates situps with 232 pushups. I haven't done a situp since December so that should be fun. I'll also do some tomorrow morning to push myself over 10K.
