However, I have stayed away from alcohol and I'm remaining strong.
I had prosciutto and apricots for breakfast. My black coffee is still sitting on my desk, and I will enjoy it at lukewarm temperatures this afternoon.
For lunch I had white asparagus, skirt steak, spring mixed greens, and avocado slices. I finally learned that I should I under-cook my steak so that heating it up in the microwave cooked it to medium-rare. I hate charco-tar biscuits and it only took me four years of professional life to figure this trick out.
Lunchtime is less exciting now that I no longer receive an email from reception saying, "Your lunch is here!" I might ask the receptionist to email me that anyway just to bring the joy back.
The other day I was casually looking up 50 mile races on the internet and I found the JFK 50 Mile entry standards. I am going to took my own horn and point out that I qualify for A-Standard based on my Caumsett 50K time of 5:08:44. I feel a lot better about running the Rock The Ridge Endurance Challenge now that I know that I qualify for the cool kids team for a race run primarily by military personnel.
That being said, I skipped my long run this weekend because I am a lush who prioritizes bad behavior and sex. Is anyone up for a post-work long run on Thursday? Leave a comment or message me directly if you're interested.
