      Ha ha. Just kidding.

      It really is that hard. But all of the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth and quads is made up for a gazillion-fold by the spectacular beauty of the course.

      The RD is not, sadly, spectacularly beautiful, but he puts on the best rinky dink marathon I have run in my rinky dink running career.

      I've run this stupid marathon every year, and every year I love it stupidly more. I have nary a complaint about any of it from start to drunken finish. This year, there was so much mind-numbingly good food at the finish that I nearly sat down on the soggy ground and cried.

      Plus, the overall awards are unparalleled. This year I won one of the highly coveted crotch monkeys!


      Underlining added by me.

      In it for the long run..

        That's awesome!

          I <3 Tanya . 

          Which is a stupid expression because size wise I am clearly >1 Tanya. 

          But surely <3 Tanya's in the writing department.

              I didn't know it was a crotch Monkey. How embarrassing. I showed it to people on the airplane.



              The Wrong Team

                It was cool meeting Doug & TT, et al.

                My goals for 2010 are to party with internet people before, during, and after Monkey.  

                And to be less obvious when staring at others' crotch monkeys.
