I have officially been off of soda, more specifically Coke and Dr. Pepper for two weeks. Now that the headaches and un-rational thoughts about how I can get my hands on one at 2am have subsided, I can say that I feel AWESOME! I went for a run thing morning and I felt strong and actually enjoyed the myself. I can’t say that I am going to swear off Coke or Dr. Pepper forever. I don’t know if that is an achievable goal. But I am going to stick to it and see how long I can last. Now that I have done two weeks I am shooting for a month.
I am leaving for Moab tomorrow afternoon for my relay race. This week I feel much stronger and am more excited than for the race. I am still not in the shape I would like to be for it, but I feel like I can compete. I am going to try to twitter the crap out of the race. So follow my tweets http://twitter.com/beaushakespear. Have a great week.
“If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” (this seems appropriate for me for the last couple of weeks)
