Training with bacteria


As some of you may know, I have a ludicrously unlikely plan to break the Winter Park hillclimb record this summer.

I was uncertain that I had the mental fortitude or physical talents needed for such a goal, but fate is already smiling on me in 2009.

That’s right, I’ve got food poisoning. Last time this happened I lost 3 pounds and didn’t eat for 36 hours. I’ll be lean and fit before you know it! I’ve never been so convinced that my intestinal flora are my best allies – and I’ve gotta give a nod to the person or persons who didn’t wash their hands before preparing my calzone last night, too.

This is a team effort, people.
