Lord, beer me strength

The day this post should have been posted, I ran 2 miles and lost at arm wrestling before 8 in the morning.
Possibly relevant extra facts:
  • I hadn't run in a month before that.
  • The woman I lost at arm wrestling to is 18 years older than I am.

Possibly relevant extra extra facts:
  • She's in really good shape, seriously, and her profession requires a certain amount of upper-body strength.

So, you know, mixed bag.

And on the day I'm actually writing this? I went for a three-mile walk first thing in the morning, went for a hike with my dad, and am headed to the gym for a session with my trainer.

Day 10 of my month of gratitude: I'm thankful for my temporarily able body. Let's all hope that it carries me into the week after the month of gratitude, when I'm theoretically running this 5K. Because, you know, hot chocolate.

Gee whiz, CMC, you sound super busy as of late. But anyone who makes time for an arm wrestling contest amidst all that other activity is A-OK with me.
I suggest renting "Over the Top" if you're looking for any tips before the next time you grapple.
Stallone at his worst (and that's saying something).

Thanks, Joe. Busy, yes. But never too busy for Stallone.
