...They Keep Pulling Me Back In

As of today there are 38 calendar days until the McAllen celebration of my second favorite holiday of the year, Oktoberfest. Just as years past, the festivities will take place in the McAllen Civic Center. And just as years past, it is all you can drink and all you can eat for only twenty clams. Did I mention that it's all you can drink?

Well, I'm spent the better part of the year weaning myself off of my inebriated ways, and on purpose too. I think it was my New Year's Resolution, although I'm not positive, I was probably drunk at the time.

But for all the increased health and peace of mind, I'm waaaaaayyyy out of shape for the upcomming Oktoberfest. As a result, I've put myself on a rigorous pre-season training schedule. As of right now, I'm averaging one beer a day (I'm also running nearly every day). The main reason? I don't want to be a cheap date come November 4.
