Day 58 - Two Shirts, One Expo, Sleep Debt and Hollywood Fit Expo

April 5, 2013           244.3 lbs

I didn't end up getting a lot of sleep last night and had an early and busy day. Which included a lot of swimming, helping a friend. By the time I got home I was exhausted. Really exhausted and couldn't understand why. It wasn't until several hours later, I figured it out. It was due to the double workouts yesterday, plus the lack of good recovery sleep, plus a kind of double workout today, plus, I got sunburned. Whole upper body. Well I needed a little more color anyhow.

I went to the Hollywood Fit Expo to get my race packet for tomorrow. I'm running the Hollywood Half Marathon and 5k. I'm doing the 5k. Not good to be so tired the night before but what can ya do?
I only made one circuit through the expo, but as I passed the Long Beach Marathon booth, the guy working it threw me a free shirt! He told me he was waiting for someone his size to come by. Tall and fat has perks! I had just been discussing the Long Beach Marathon with a friend that day.
I grabbed the shirt you get for registering on the way out. Let me say, it is pretty swanky. One Expo, two free shirts= Awesome.

Cool car on display.

I'm supposed to run today but I'm too tired and out of time as I have to wake up at 3:30am and it's now midnight. Oops, just realized I need to get some cash before the race. Eh, I'll do it tomorrow morning.

Here is the snazzy shirt I got from the Long Beach Marathon booth guy.
Well guys, I have to go. Race report for tomorrow plus three hour ride. Until tomorrow my friends.


  1. I'm going to have to ask you for your Fat Guy card... I just received a call from fraud prevention. They told me to cut it up.

  2. Not if you saw the video of me swimming my friend shot yesterday to send my coach! Lol!
