As you all know, I work at Ultimate Burger in Kona. I have worked there since the end of October 2012.
Before or after a shift we can eat a burger for free. I do not eat one every shift, but just maybe 60% or 70% of the time.
Today I ate my 300th burger there. And it was so good! I count any time I eat a burger - free or non-shift days when I have paid for the burger. Mind you I have only paid for 3 or 4 burgers, so 296 or 297 of the 300 burgers I have eaten at UB have been free. FREE!
Great swim (finned). Then wogged. The run felt shitty. Took FOREVER to warm up. And the time reflects that. And it also reflects more real world run on a street instead of on grass like before...
30 minutes: 1.80 miles
60 minutes: 4.32 miles (2.52 miles in this 30 minutes)
Today I wogged for 30 minutes, and then 30 more minutes to make the hour metric.
30 minutes: 2.28 miles
60 minutes: 4.76 miles (2.48 miles in this 30 minutes)
I am going to see how this goes: my new metric for running... go for 30 minutes. And see how far in that span. Running, walking, warm up, whatever, just go for 30 minutes and see.
Today I rode 25 miles, and then did the 30 minutes.
2.23 miles. Run felt not too good, but let's see how it goes...
Warm up mile..wog..10:58
Humpy's in Kona had an Oktoberfest Party. And like last year there was a brat eating contest. And like last year I won! And like last year there was no real competition at the contest.
Finally! I try the Cantina Steak Burrito at Taco Bell. It's about time!
If you are looking to save even more money on the deals that are all over the place today, check out these Black Friday Deals 2012. And even if you miss out on the great Friday sales, do not forget about Cyber Monday Sales since the online guys want a piece of the pie as well.
Here are some photos from the qualifying for the Ultimate Burger eating contest in Kailua Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii...
On the Hawaii Craigslist, this title for a job posting:
My 2nd event went down yesterday. 3/4 mile swim followed by 3.9 mile run.
The next event for me is in a week... 3/4 mile swim followed by a 3.9 mile run.
There's a first time for everyone, and mine was Sunday.
Here is my current top 5 of the most delicious things I have ever eaten...
There is still stuff in the house, but we're OK with that. Each thing can be categorized as going on the plane, selling on eBay, donate, or trash.
After being postponed twice, the next taco eating contest finally went down at Mezcal. There would be 9 guys and 1 girl (Brooke, she of the all-girls taco eating contest in September last year).
