I toyed with a crazy idea for the Chargers 5K today. You see, when I ran it last year, I was very hungover (read: still very drunk). Minutes before the race began, I was in the porta-potties throwing up. Minutes after the race finished, I was in the bathrooms at Qualcomm Stadium throwing up. It was a terrible way to run a race, but it makes for a ridiculous story and I'm all about those.
I thought about trying to assemble a team that would go out the night before and get hammered. Shots, beers, mixed drinks, the whole nine yards. Running a 5K when you're wasted the next day is a terribly lonely and embarrassing feeling. Doing the same thing with a group of people that feel the same way and are laughing about stuff from the night before? Probably more entertaining.
Anyway, no. We're not doing that. I almost died last time. Those hills are no joke. Start training.
