flying pig...


well, it was a little less flying and a little more pig.

my time was 2:54 and i ran the whole way. my legs are too stubby to keep up with the others so i did 12/13 of it on my own. by far, this was way more mentally challenging than physical.

at mile 7 some lady was giving out little cups of jelly beans. i can say with complete honesty that it saved the race for me. that energy boost those magic beans gave me was priceless. besides water and gatorade, she was the only person giving out stuff... and it was EXACTLY what i needed.

i think i may do it again next year... but, the jury is still out. i don't doubt that i can cut 20 minutes off my time if i pack a fanny pack of jelly beans.

i'm completely impressed which is why I am not going to make any jokes about the photo or the jelly beans.

Brilliantly written and well-executed blog which you don't really see these days quite easily and in my point of view the young bloggers should learn from you so that they will be able to produce some fruitful information to the readers. So keep up with the good work and hope to see more from you in future also.
