I was out last night with the our graduate Kaizen Runners… It was a good, fun night.
A few funny things happened, and my cheeks were that good sore from laughing quite a lot:
When offered a drink, I came out to say I dont drink anymore… To be answered with:
‘oh no, you’re not one of them are you?’
heh heh, yes I am in afraid. Three years and two months off it, and I’m glad.
I did explain the whole story, having been a regular drinker since the age of … eleven (!!!) … by 28 I’d had my fill and managed to get the gumption to give up after my worst and last hangover (sick 8 times in one day, unable to drive, unable to do anything really). No more for me!
I still have a laugh when I go out, I just don’t do the stupid behaviour I used to can drive home, and I don’t get the sore head and sick body in the morning. Suits me.
And one of the other funny ones was one of the runners was saying how motivational she’d found me to be, and she said:
‘You’re like, you’re like…. Barack O’bama!’
Ha ha. I’m not sure in what way? I know I’m not black, or the first black president of the USA. Nice to be compared to him though, whatever she meant.
Oh and last thing, if any of ‘you lot’ (who are drinkers) have a sore head, take a read of this to help you recover:
I feel fine today, and am looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. No training for me (except for Kaizen Runners Run a Great 10k on Subday morning).
