Tonight’s chore: a 9.5 mile run in preparation for the half marathon. Unlike the last long run I did, I felt like CRAP during the whole run. And now, the blog is my outlet to whine. For the first 4 miles I had a side cramp. When that went away, I battled acid reflux akin to gargling with battery acid. I was STARVING for the entire run and finally, my knee ended up being total garbage after about mile 6. I came home and absolutely plowed down food. I must say, the awesome thing about long distance running is the the calories burned. Tonight I killed off about 1200 of the little buggers. Thus, when I got home and ate a 1600 calorie dinner, I had no regrets.
And now I’m adding to the calorie count with a can of Foolproof La Ferme Urbaine. The 7.8% ABV beer is a farmhouse/saison style beer. It’s one of those peppery saisons. You know, the ones I’m not a huge fan of? It’s all good though. There is a decent honey-like malt backbone that evens things out. Being terribly thirsty doesn’t hurt either. If you’re into traditional saisons and you like Foolproof beer, you should definitely give this a go.
As promised, I’m giving away Freakers with each post until I run out. Today you have another shot at one of the remaining drink insulators (Bromance, 1Chainz, Lumbersmack). The first person to comment below wins!
Also, my last post had no comments, so technically there are two Freakers to be won. You may comment on either (or both) posts to win.
