Scott Baio Ain't Got Nothing On Me
Yesterday, I met K down at the U of M for the Gold Country 5K run. This is the first time I had run a step in almost 2 months. Back in early April, I injured my achilles in a race. I think it is tendinitis. I took all this time off for my injury to heal. I was going to run a half marathon for the first time in years at the end of May. I had to skip that. I also had to skip the Get in Gear (I was signed up to do both). I ran the Gold Country nice & slow, but after the race, I could still fee the stiffness & pain in my achilles. I guess I am going to have to see a doctor about it. I need to get back running again.
After the race, Kleczewski was going to take Whitney & I out for lunch as a wedding gift. He was going to take us to a new place downtown that he ate at for lunch one day, but could not remember the name. That should have clued me in. We arrived downtown, and we proceeded to Brits Pub. Now I knew something was up. We walked up to the rooftop patio, and there was most of my friends waiting for us. It was a little post wedding party. Actually, this was the first surprise party that was ever thrown for me. Cool Stuff. I had the English Cheese Plate for lunch, and Whitney had a pot pie. It was good to see everyone together again. I does not happen too often anymore.
Following the surprise party, Whitney & Nicole went out for a movie, & Kleczewski & I proceeded to Uptown for the Citypages Beer Fest. I have only been to one of these before, and that was in 2002. I did not drink nearly as much as I did that year, but I was feeling pretty good at the end of the night. My best line of the evening...
"Barkeep, let me try your most satanic of ales."
And one last beer thought, why is it that Pabst is just terrible, but they give out the best Swag at these kind of events???
