Running is the Best Cure to a Hang Over

by Meghann on October 19, 2008

  I would like to forewarn everybody that all of this.,…..



…. Leads to this…..


That’s right a 2:00 am pizza run! At least I got the Veggie slice, right? Let, me tell you this was some of the best pizza I have ever had! It was covered in broccoli, peppers, black olives, green olives, spinach, tomatoes and other yummy veggies. I also devoured the delicious garlic knot that came with it! This was the perfect ending to a great night with friends. I can’t even remember the last time I ended up at a 24 pizza place! This was a VERY rare occasion, but totally worth the splurge. ๐Ÿ™‚


Caitlin and I had a blast bar hopping downtown with. It was my first experience bar hopping in Orlando and the first time I’ve really allowed myself to have more then one drink at a bar since January! We dance, drank and just enjoyed the night.

With the multiple drinks and late night pizza I will admit I wasn’t feeling to hot when I woke up this morning. It was nothing aspirin and jugs of water couldn’t handle. Another great cure to a hang over? A 5 mile run! That’s right Caitlin and I still manage to wake up at 8:00 am this morning and get a 5 mile run under our belts before breakfast! I wouldn’t call it my best run to date, but I can not tell you how much better I feel after completing the run. Next time your hung over, put on your running shoes and head out the door, it will help, I promise!

Before our run I enjoyed a nice piece of toast smothered with cashew butter.


After our run I consumed two little whole wheat pancakes with real maple syrup on the side.


Caitlin made these tantalizing pancakes and I would have happily ate more, but I am meeting some friends for lunch in an hour and did not want to be stuffed before I arrived.

Now that I have the yummy food out of the way I want to show everyone the effects of cheap shoes.


That’s Caitlin’s thumb in the picture to show just how large my blister is. I wore some cute cheap shoes on my 5k walk yesterday, in hopes I could get away with it, but unfortunately i did not. I have learned my lesson and promise to wear proper shoes on any walk/ run I do in the future. But seriously look how huge that blister is!

Alright I have plans for lunch, grocery shopping and being lazy for today. I am going to make sure to enjoy my Sunday for all that its worth and I hope everyone does the same! ๐Ÿ™‚

It sounds like a seriously great evening!!

Ouch, your blister looks painful. I lost my running shoes for a couple days and I had to wear my old cheerleading sneakers, so I’ve got a blister on my heel too. Ow!

I don’t know if I would be able to get myself out to run after a late night out! Way to go!

Such a fun night out!!! I need one of those! Honestly what is it about drinking and pizza…thats all I ever want when I’m drunk (luckily thats not often)….but in college there was a place that had dollar slices after 11 on weekends…soooo good and lines out the door!

Haha great picture of you and Caitlin! I wonder if the pizza was that good or I you were that drunk. Either way – good times! Sorry about that killer blister.
