it's not easy being green

St. Patrick's Day is not simply a holiday here in Boston. It's a weekend-long binge drinking extravaganza. I mean, who can pass up an opportunity to watch a parade and drink openly on the streets? Not I. But, the next 48 hours are going to be pretty rough for me. Why do you ask? I'm going to a party tonight and will be running a 5k tomorrow morning in Southie, then I'll be heading to an all-day party. Last year at the race I saw several runners throwing up along the route, and I internally laughed at them. Karma folks, karma. I could very well be one of those pitiful runners this year. Although I did run a 5k hungover (and possibly still drunk) once, and I actually a pretty great time. I mean, I reeked of cheap champagne and beer when I was done, but who cares?

The way I see it, there's no reason in sobering up just to get drunk again. Right? Right.
