the day mini-me and i left for nyc i ran the dances with dirt 50-mile relay. nothing like planning my life ~ and flight times ~ around my run! but this makes year four for this race and i wasn’t going to miss it!

last year we kicked ass as the dukes of hazzard-ous running so we knew this year was going to have to be huge. at the awards ceremony last year we tossed around a couple theme ideas and one stuck in my head so a few months ago the planning went into gear and the team readied. a last minute need to cancel by gaf left me floundering for a fifth but i don’t think we could have found a better replacement.



yabba dabba do!

harry, me, wally, irongirl and our last minute bambam chori.

i’m not going to go into too much detail on the race. what’s new to tell that i haven’t before. i got lost on my first leg and 6.9 miles became 9.3 (another team’s runner did 11 that leg!) chori got so lost on his second leg that we had to become cheating bastards and actually go pick him up in the jeep! we got our asses kicked time wise (there are always a couple crazy fast teams). we drank from jose … the same bottle that has danced in the dirt with us every year. hell i started drinking after my first leg ~ well before noon. we crawled through dirt and ran through the river. but the one surprise is that we lost team theme for the first time ever! and seriously shouldn’t have!

there really is only one way to share the day … in pictures.

with one week notice he made his costume AND dyed his black hair blond. that’s character commitment!
