I got to the gym this morning and then walked from work to the start of this run.
We started at Feierabend by REI, ran up to Die Bierstube on Roosevelt and drank .5 l of beer. From there it was west to Prost Tavern on Phinney Ridge for another .5 l of beer. Finally we ran back to Feierabend for the final .5 l followed by some food.
Here are some things I learned/confirmed today.
- I am not 25 years old anymore. 20, 10, heck even five years ago this would have been a blast. Today it seemed like too much beer. Sure I had one beer during he Cascade Crest 100 but that was ONE 12 oz. beer on a long, hot day and not three 17 oz. beers in fairly short order.
- I am a klutz. On the final leg of the run we were heading south just after crossing the Fremont Bridge where I opted to run on the (old, rotting, slippery) railroad ties next to all the houseboats. My eyes were riveted on my footing and that combined with my visor prevented me from seeing a rather substantial branch that stuck out across my path. I cracked it with my head and was promptly on my butt. After getting up I took perhaps five steps before I slid off the ties, stuck my foot between them and tore up my shin. Truthfully, it could have been a lot worse... I could have broken my leg.
All-in-all this was a good time but I need to be careful and maybe not involve alcohol with so many activities.
