will run for fish?

During my senior year of high school I decided I didn't want to eat meat anymore. At the time I considered myself a vegetarian:
"Vegetarianism is the practice of following a plant-based diet including fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, nuts, and seeds, with or without dairy products and eggs." - from wikipedia.org

I didn't realize that eating fish was not allowed in the practice of vegetarianism and had the occasional seafood meal. I continued these habits well into my college years until one day I decided that I really wanted a cheeseburger and then never looked back at the years spent as a non-meat eater.

Since I revolve my life around running and eating cheeseburgers I figured I shouldn't make any more rash decisions at omitting meat from my diet again. Would eating garden burgers with cheese count as a pre-race meal? Would readers of this blog look down upon me for not eating cow in between two pieces of bread?

I'm at the point where I would like to transition into pescetarianism. Let's turn to my trusty wikipedia.org source for their definition:
" ... is the practice of a diet that includes seafood and excludes mammals and birds; typically includes some or all of vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs, and dairy."

I think I'm going to try not eating chicken, pork, or cow until the wedding. As my friend Chris said it'll just mean a lot of trips to Shari for sushi and Cityfish for scallops and oysters. Doesn't sound so bad does it?
