Chronicles of a Half Marathon: Spirit of St. Louis ’07

Lessons I have learned from running a half-marathon…

– ALWAYS take a deuce before running
– Stag is delicious
– real running shoes are essential
– remember to gear check
– hills are a bitch
– you meet so many cool people (or cute girls)
– driving 5 hours back from a long race…bad idea
– carbs are delicious
– Besch has a sexy ass
– free balling is not a good idea on a cold day
– Team Koinonia is #1
– stick your running schedule and have more than 9 miles under your belt before race day
– 4 beers, 1 mike’s hard, and 4 hours of sleep before race day is a bad idea (shamrock shuffle)
– running w/ friends is a lot of fun
– training w/ the track team helps a lot
– it’s okay to lose a race to your students, you can always fail them as payback
– praying the Hail Mary during mile 10-11 helps big time
– doing this as Wheat for your students was the best idea you ever had
