    "...and we can say we ran it the year it rained a lot".  At least it wasn't cold.

     

    Great big fun.

     

    Well, sort of.  Not a good year for me.  Monkey PW, actually. By a lot. And as I will retire before Monkey-next, fooey.  That's not the way to go out. (LAST year apparently should have been it for me)

     

    I threw away my shoes at the airport.

     

    Great seeing everybody again and meeting some new people.

     

    Sorry about the people who puked and passed out and stuff.

      Yes.  The year it rained.  I was there.


      Imminent Catastrophe

        It rained for a long time. Epic!

          Sorry about the people who puked and passed out and stuff.

           

          It is healthier to puke and pass-out than to pass-out and puke. 

           

           

          Monkey PW, actually. By a lot.

           

          But you ran a long race in Alabama the day before.  I fell short of my goal of buying a sili cup and I didn't even buy silicone cups yesterday. 

           

          I talked to some good people out on the course and loved the volunteers and after-race spread. 
          Some amazing woman at an aid station took my long sleeve shirt back to the start line too!

            Had a great time - harder than I anticipated.  Guess I didn't heed the warnings.  Nice to meet / see a few RA'rs.

              Ouch.  My legs are not happy with me today.

               

              It was an awesome weekend!  Thanks for putting on a great event, Trent!

               

              Looks like you'll have to put off retirement, Robert.

                I think the monkeys bit my foot at least 3 times, for no good reason I rolled my right foot twice around mile 14 and 15, and had a sharp spasm in the same foot at about mile 22,  enough to stop me in my tracks, but not realy injured, I don't think, so got to be Monkey attacks.

                 

                Running in the rain was fun, definitely better than the warm, humid  run I was dreading at the start.

                  Monsoon Monkey was a blast but I really have to wonder when water wrinkles will go away.

                    +1 I was worried about 70 degrees after the last week being sub-50 in Ohio. I was thankful for the cooling rain during the run.

                     

                    Monsoon Monkey... cute :-)

                      I passed out...a1 puked. It wasn't a combo. Ran my worst marathon time in quite a while too. Sucks to be 15-20 minutes off what I thought I'd do....shouldn't complain too much I guess since I still got a croch monkey. I'm retired though. Done chasing a monkey 1st place.

                        On which account?

                         

                         


                        Was it all a dream?

                          When? My phone isnt't showing any missed calls...

                          I'm in the business of misery...

                            The over/under on that was "15 minutes".

                             

                            Sadly, all the action was on the over.

                             


                            I'm back!

                              FWIW I think a 3:10ish Monkey is comparable to < 3:00 at -- say -- New York. And you were still beat up from New York. All in all I'd say you did pretty well.
