Happy Dopple Bock Day! (Read 1965 times)

    My Fellow Americans

    Peoples of All Foreign Lands

     

    Greetings.

     

    As you may recall, one year ago today, our very own Mikey "The Pig" Henze (a.k.a. Dopple Bock) as part of  a team led by Scott Jurek, won a bronze medal for the United States at the 24 Hour World Championships in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France.  Of that glorious occasion, Jurek wrote, "Team USA men placed third for the bronze medal with a heroic late surge and PR by Michael Henze and a solid PR performance by Serge Arbona."

     

    On that day, some here suggested that this event be memorialized as Dopple Bock Day, making it the very first runnningAHEAD.com holiday. And so, it is with abundant joy, that I wish you all a very happy and healthy Dopple Bock Day.

     

    Long may you run!

     

    GO DB!

        I remember walking in to my gym at butt crack of dawn and shouting 154.5 miles!  to a room full of people who had no idea what I was talking about and looked at me like I was more nuts than usual.

                  Does this mean we get to take Monday off from work since DB day falls on a weekend this year?
