      Twas today and is all done.  7th in my age group with a snooze-sounding 3:52 (1:56/1:56 even split).  However, this a challenging race (for a road marathon) up high (but not like those Leadville weirdos).

       

      Anyway, compared to the other 3 times I ran this race... 4:15, 4:02, and 4:09... I'll take it.

       

      I wore pink for the race. Says Breast Cancer Sucks right on the back.  Two things:

       

      1. two minutes before the race started, random dude I don't know comes up. He does not seem happy.  "Do you ever run for MEN'S health issues??" Undecided

       

      2. I got the "Goooo Breast Cancer!" cheer.  To which I responded, "No!  BOOOO breast cancer!"

       

      No Mr Butler.

       That's why he's some random dude and you're not.  Congratulations, SRL! Very well done (and doing).

        Gongrats, SRL, that's a serious body of work right there.

              SRL, that's impressive. SRLly.

               

              Ah, but can you do 300 marathons barefoot with no food or water for three days prior to the race(s)?

                 

                .  I'm cutting back after 333.

                 

                Numerology?

                 

                BTW- you're a maniac

                  Wow, that is amazing.

                   

                  Now - do the math and figure out how much you spent in just registration fees alone.  Never mind all the shoes, gels, clothes, travel... (Sorry, I'm an accountant and I'm at work right now)

                    Holy Smokes! That's awesome.

                     

                     

                      Awesome, in the older sense of the word.

                      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                            No gracias.

                             

                            Although for the travel (and sometimes the registration fees), it's a bit of a party trick.  Thanks to a long history of work-related travel, I had some severe ff miles I burned through for awhile.  And hotel points.

                             

                            Alas, I have drained those buckets mostly.

                             

                            For those who hoard miles: DONT.  Use them!  They devalue over time as airlines fiddle with their programs.  Use them up!

                             

                              The true awesomeness is that by my calculations that is a marathon approximately every 12 days. On average
