12,300 to be
exact... and if I really wanted to I could
stop typing and go even more nuts...
...but I have
to have something to shoot for later,
It sucks, 'cause
it's like telling someone you ate a 12,000 calorie
meal but they have no idea what a calorie is. Come to
think of it, most people don't. But relatively
speaking they get it...
2000 is a normal
day, 3000 is an active day and 5000 would be a very
active day. If I run for an hour straight without
stopping, I get around 2500. Strangely, on days
I run? I brely get over 4000 because tend to
take it easy after, well, after running for an hour
straight. So this? This right here is absolutely
crazy. For comparison's sake, last year I got
excited whenI went over 10,000 and was sure
I would never pull that off in a day... I've now
done that 3 times in the last 3 weeks and today over
So how did
I do it? I woke up at 7am and never stopped
moving. Ever. Not to eat, not to chill... around 15
straight hours until I slowed down a bit. And am
now finally sitting down to write this. The day
included wood-work, cement, in fact - here's what a
couple minutes of it looks like:
staining, building and repeat. And because the
tournament is tomorrow, I had to get certain
things done so I could paint the cement
the people would be walking on in the morning and have
it JUST dry by 11am. Whew. Happy to say, I made it.
The front is still weeks away from being finished, but
it is accessible.
But what a day. I
know there are people reading this that are thinking:
"Oh, that's nothing, I've gotten up at 7am and never
stopped moving until midnight before..." Yeah, me
too... but that's not what gets you 12,000 fuel
points. It has to be aerobic. Hammer. Mixing that
cement. You're working up a sweat and you're pushing.
It's the eqivalent of a non-stop walk at a brisk pace
for 12 hours straight. Or look at it this way, with
everything I've built the last year? I only hit 10,000
one time and I've built a BUNCH. Who knows if I'll
beat it again, but I sure love deadlines. Wait'll you
see the video tomorrow of the house.
tomorrow! The big event! Although sure to be a smaller
event as I simply have not had time to advertise it
online. And honestly, that's fine. That's why I didn't
make this the first charity event. Had way too much to
finish around the house before any charity would
attach their name to it. Still do in fact. Hopefuly
the 2 months between now and Labor Day wil provide
enough time to make it happen. Man, this is all so
insane. I cannot believe that I'm afforded the
time to BUILD a life for my family...
THANK YOU IMAX STOCK! I cannot
wait to write that entry when I finally sell my
final stocks. That decsion in 2008 completely changed
Alright, and since
Organizer Adam is officially going to sleep tonight I
can become GOLFER ADAM and talk some shit. Even
though I can barely move because I'm so sore and
I have played maybe one round since The
Memorial? I will whoop some ass...
truth is? I'm rooting for Jimmy. I desperately
want someone to beat me to add legitimacy to the
course before a charity event and I'd rather it be a
Kontras. ;-) The truth is, and I've said this before,
once you've played the course 3 or 4 times? You know
all there is to know. It comes down to patience and,
well, more patience.

I ended up with 12,403 by midnight.
