I apologize to all of you. I had no idea my 4-mile run today in Norman was going to get more coverage than the State of the Union Address. That was embarrassing.
Thankfully, I didnt pass out or pull a Cutler today. I completed Sherri Coales Challenge in less than 45 minutes. Ill take it. Big time thanks to all of you who showed up to cheer me on today. Whats wrong with you people. You spent an hour watching a fat guy run. No but seriously, thanks.
I vastly underestimated how helpful it would be to have Biggest Loser winner Danny Cahill as my coach. He was great. A constant stream of positive encouragement. The dude lost 239 pounds. I just kept thinking any pain Im going through is nothing compared to the walls hes run through.
Anyway, Im glad today is over. Ive been dreading this for a week now. I kept dreaming about falling off the treadmill and breaking my arm and becoming the most popular video of the day on failblog.com.
I feel pretty good right now. Im sure the lactic acid buildup is on its way overnight, but Ill sleep well tonight knowing I didnt let Sooner Nation down. Think of me as your overweight superhero who fights evil with his giant valentine. All is well Oklahoma. All is well.
