Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon

It's a race for idiots. (Read 526 times)

    Someone just asked me which race I'm doing on Sunday so I told her. She had never heard of it and asked if it was for some charity. I told her it's a race for idiots. I then had to explain that the course is so hilly that only idiots sign up for it. That was the most honest answer I could think of. I'm not sure if I feel like more of an idiot now or not.

    I don't half-ass anything

      It is also done for the Friends of Percy Warner Park!  Some of who(m) may or may not be idiots.

        Wait til Sunday afternoon.  Your idiocy will be confirmed at that point.

        The tangents are moot.

        And in the end...

          Wait til Sunday afternoon.  Your idiocy will be confirmed at that point.

           

          Confirmed.

            Possibly two toenails will be a casualty....toenails are stupid anyway...

            Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

              My chiropractor said he mentioned to another patient who runs marathons that I ran the Monkey. Her response: Only stupid people run that race!

                I saw Trent Saturday doing a fun little run at Lookout Mountain. THAT was really stupid.

                    Nice work to you! WTG on beating your 12 hour goal significantly.

                     

                    My run turned into more of a hike. No injury, just whipped. I was happy just to finish my first 50 and look forward to next year!
