So with great fanfare, pomp and circumstance the competition begins…what the Olympics you say? No say I the Worth the Weight competition. In the opening salvo, Robin from Gotta Run (there are two Gotta Run blogs) traded blows albeit with some gentle smack talk with Marcy. I have to say that I was impressed by the reserved nature of it all but like the long run it’s all about pacing.
I am going to come up with a special Smack Down prize not previously listed for the wittiest, smartest comment or retort made in the comments section, so let the creative juices start flowing.
The line up is now complete and entry is now closed, there were a couple or three late entries who squeezed in and so now the complete line up is:
Christie, Gotta Run, javamom, Jenn, Jes, Jess, jkrunning, Kevin, Laura, Lily on the Road, Luis, Maddy, Marcy, mcmmama, Mendy, Ms. V, Nick, Non Runner Nancy, Run for Life, Sara, Scott, Second Chances, swimfan13, Viv, Wendy and moi! I still need a starting weight from Mendy.
In my attempt to reach my stated goal of between 160-165, which alas is only around 8%, I finished up my supply of ice lollies and managed to avoid the frozen section while grocery shopping last weekend. So here's my start line, I should point out this this is post trail run, my feet are usually quite clean. Extra points if you can figure out which toe I broke and can you see why black toe is never an issue!
I other news I registered for the Bulldog race on the 23rd, I squeezed in a mail entry at the cheaper rate and avoided the Active.com fees, I am only running the 25k but expect it to be a long hot morning! Tonight I am off to see Eddie Izzard live, he’s an acquired taste but I’ll leave you with this tidbit and remember step away from the cookies!
