A life without Sprite

I remember my coworker Chris telling me “In Russia, a beer is like a Sprite.” Meaning it’s not real alcohol unless it’s liquor.

I’m going to run a half marathon in May (please go to my website and donate!) and that means no polluting my body. At all. I’m in terrible shape, so I’m going to need as much help as I can get.

It’s weird to not drink at all. I enjoy a beer or glass of wine now and again, and living around so many bars (according to Yelp, 670 in Ukrainian Village) makes it kind of weird.

It’s nice to grab a beer with a friend. I’m going to have to switch to coffee as my social drink of choice. However, my favorite coffee shop never has decaf, so if I hang out there long enough, I feel like I’m on drugs and can’t sleep for two days.

I need to find a new favorite coffee shop with free wireless. Or switch to something else…
