I am a highly detail-oriented person. The biggest drawback of this (for me) is that I can see all sorts of things at once, but my brain really fights putting them together to form a composite. I knew I was running today, I know that it is my best friend’s father’s birthday and I also know I’m missing the end of the Super Bowl now. My highly compartmentalized brain didn’t put the first and last ideas together until I’d already stuffed myself on football food. Not that great for running. The Moscow mules didn’t help, either. But I made it! Without vomiting, or stopping. So next year I just make a small adjustment- run THEN gorge on crappy food.
