always, NO wagering allowed. Cowbells encouraged but not required.

Need somebody to talk incessantly during a long run? Ask you questions while you are gasping for breath? I'm your guy.


  1. Barring having something better to do, Lab Rat is thinking of posting to 45 MOMM then heading up after some of that good, good Hardywood coffee afterwards.

    Bonus: the reception on The Mater (102.9 FM) is really good up there!

  2. Do you bring a t-shirt from another race and pretend you got it for this race too? Just asking for a friend, I’ll be out of town.
