A fireman with a water hose trying to help the racers stay cool on a 103 degree day with 98% humidity!
Running related bathroom stop story:
So..I have $20 in the middle of a race in Arizonia with no veggetation or a porta potty in site...do you think those people will let me use their bathroom for $20?
Running pet peeves:
1. Run/Walkers. Pick one or the other and stick with it!
2. Grown adults who wear their race metals out the evening of a race and then continue to wear them several days after the race.
3. All of the people who came ill prepared for the Ascent - and being turned around at the A-FRAME because of them!
4. Someone else's Gu packet stuck to the bottom of my shoe!
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I would rather keep you guessing!
Other hobbies and interests:
Anything that has to do with the outdoors that usually requires expensive equipment.
