Nothing cures a hangover like...

...a long, slow run. So it wasn't that long (12.6K = 7.8mi) or that slow (1:14), but it did the trick.

We had our softball banquet last night and there was an open bar. 'Nuff said! I crawled out of bed this morning at 8:30 realizing I would not be meeting the group I was invited to join...at 8:30. Oops! It took me over an hour to get going, but I headed out into the cool, windy, overcast morning and had a decent run. The weather has settled down into something more comfortably, so I can get away with light pants and a long-sleeve shirt. Hopefully this will last a while!

One week til the Hamilton Road2Hope half marathon and I have A, B and C goals. Stay tuned for that tomorrow!

Funny you saw that, Marlene. I'm the same way. Nothing cures a hangover (no matter how bad) like going for a run. I think there's some truth to "sweating it out"... plus it gets you out instead of staying in bed all day.

Impressive. Way to get out there and run. You get an A for effort.

Glad you got a run in (hungover or not). Moe wants me to run Hamilton as a full next weekend. The man is insane!

Can't wait to hear all your goals;)
Way to rock the run hungover.
I'm pretty sure I've run completely smashed before. My running buddies got a good laugh outta me.

Are you doing the full next weekend or the half?

I think any run helps a hangover honestly. I don't know what it is. It might just all be in my head really. Looking forward to seeing the goals.

So, is "cool" still like freezing over in your neck of woods?? ;-) Great job getting out there even with a hangover!! Sometimes, those are painful but they sure are quick cures to hangovers!
