I'm fixed?

Remember when I told you all about my FIRST broken bone
Well it's 'fixed' now. Or it's improved like bionic style.
This is the surgery, not mine but the same thing.

That isn't what this is about though.

Even if you've never had surgery I'm sure you still know about the no food or drink after midnight. It's the same rule as Gremlins. And since you are a huge fan of this blog you also know that I get HANGRY. Well if you mix that in with my lack of coffee it was a rough morning.

At some point while I was hanging out in my beautiful hospital gown some one walked by with the above mentioned drink of the gods. Broken wrist or not I was pretty sure I could take them.

This was when the anesthesiologist asked me about how much coffee I drink. I admit I got a little cagey because I was worried that they would cancel my surgery. I mean the nurse told me I wasn't even allowed to chew gum, crazy town!

She wasn't trying to trap me in a lie though. She was m…

Remember last week when I told you all about some lunatic that ran 100 miles?

Of course you do.
That is the sort of thing that sticks with you, perhaps even haunts you.
Well today I ran the Spartan. Again. You might remember I did this 3 years ago.
I was ready for today. I'm in better shape, stronger and faster.
I'm also OLDER. 
shakes an angry fist at father time. MEN!

About two thirds of the way through I scaled a ten foot wall and on the way down I tumbled and.......Well I'll just let this picture explain.


Yup. that is a broken wrist.
So whatever, that happens. People do stupid things and get hurt all the time.
OTHER PEOPLE!! Not me. I'm invincible. 
OK maybe not invincible but while I was getting x rayed I had some time to think. I've never had an x ray. At least not one in all the years I've been old enough to remember.
That's crazy.  
NEVER had an x ray? That's just a shame because look how pretty my bones are.

SELFISH. Very selfish.  So you're…

This isn't a post about that Proclaimers song.

Not sure what is more upsetting. 1) that by typing that, the song is now stuck in my head or 2) that I knew the Proclaimers sang it without having to look it up? It's a toss up really.

Whatever.

Have you ever run?

Not from something or because you were late but for FUN? Weird right?

Apparently people do it all the time. 5ks, half marathons, full marathons. There is actually a race that is 100 miles long.

Yes you read that right. A nice jog that can take you 24 hours to complete. Doesn't that sound like FUN? Seriously FUN right?

Obviously I'm not going to be doing that.

This weekend though someone I know did.

I'll give you a second to wrap your brain around that. 24 hours of running.

So I signed up to get text notifications of their progress. Cool right? I thought so too but because that would be a lame blog post I've decided to juxtapose my day to their progress.



By the time I was brushing my teeth they had already…
