JFK 50 Miler

March 28th, 2010 - Training - Lowell, MA - 3.27

Day 87 - The day began with Fil and I (among many others) volunteering at the re-birth of the Irish Feet Are Running 5 Miler. According to Glenn, the race itself was a wild success as there were no complaints, deaths, or lawsuits!

It was interesting to be on the other side of a race, watching the runners instead of chasing them down. Overall, it was a nice experience to be at a race and not race the race.

Following our pro bono publico duties, in a cruel and unusual experiment, Fil and I wanted to find out what it would be like to run our 3 miler after downing two beers, chicken soup, bagels (skip the garlic ones), and b-a-n-a-n-a-s. The experiment was a success based on the standards set by RD Glenn above. Nobody complained, died, or sued!

Needless to say, running after drinking is a major buzz kill, but we highly recommend it for anyone racing against us in the future.
