Quote Of The Day
“We can binge drink like college sophomores. Our racing schedule primes us for a binge and fast environment. Couple that with a competitive drive, and that handle of whiskey is downed and metabolized before you can say ‘Naked wind-sprints in the front yard!’ Self preservation is completely eradicated. Want to party hard? Find a group of runners the last week of September. Slow and steady may win the race, but sporadic consumption of large amounts of alcohol wins the fun.”
– US 800-meter runner Phoebe Wright, blogging in a post about why pro runners are good to date, which serves a counterpoint to her own post last week about why it was impossible to date a pro runner – “Meet my boyfriend, Track.” Phoebe says pros might be good dates as they are cheap (as they are used to living on little money), are great at binging on TV episodes in hotel rooms and binging on alcohol during the few times they have to party.
