A Dance with Monkeys

    Registration for 2012 will involve a weighted lottery. Registrants will be directed to the registration website, below. The registration website will be open for one week. That is, you will have one week to put your name in the hat. After this weeklong period closes, we will use a weighted lottery to select those who will have the misfortune of running the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon this Fall. If selected to run your credit card will be charged $80, and we will notify you of your poor luck. If you are not selected to run, you can thank your lucky stars.

    Please note: there will be an option to make a $180 donation to the Friends of Warner Parks, which will allow you to bypass the lottery and get right in. This option will be available to the first 20 registrants who take this offer, on a first come, first served basis.

    Registration for the lottery should open on August 1, 2012 at 8AM Central Daylight Time. Registration for the lottery will close on August 8, 2012 at 8am. The lottery to be held a short time later.

    When registration opens, you can access the registration site from: http://www.harpethhillsmarathon.com/ under the "registration" tab.

            I know you had several options.  And you can't make everyone happy.  But at least this idiot thinks you ended up with a pretty fair solution.

             

            Registration for 2012 will involve a weighted lottery.  Those who brought the most popular post-race foodstuffs will have more chances.

              Also, I hope sippy cups will be for sale again this year.

               

                We out-of-staters should be exempted from your fascist lottery scheme

                and ... oh hell, we out-of-staters should be exempt from paying the entry

                fee.

                  Trent is being awfully cagey asking us to trust him about this whole "weighted lottery" thing.  Apparently only he knows the formula so that it can't be rigged.  The last time I trusted someone who said "Trust me" I ended up a parent.

                   

                  I think the formula is:  number of years running the race plus number of beers you have gifted Trent with multiplied by the number of message board posts mentioning the race divided by the number of times you have cursed Trent while running or training for the race.  

                   

                  Extra points are added if you have volunteered at the race, are a Marathon Maniac, a member of the Swamp, a Facebook friend of the race, run in a tutu, wear a costume,  or are an FOT (Friend of Trent.)

                   

                  Points are deducted for starting but not finishing the race, saying "i'll run it next year,"  posting about the race day weather more than 2 days out from the race, questioning the existence of flying monkeys, or posting a training plan for the race.

                   

                  Anyone making mudslide jokes is automatically disqualified.  

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  This may be the year Trent finds himself running alone.

                  The tangents are moot.

                    I also think that the bigger the bribe to the RD (whether it be money or beer)....the more weight one gets in the lottery Big grin

                    Fitness/weight goals for 2014

                     

                    1) STAY INJURY FREE!!!

                    2) Get to 199 lbs by the Greenway Marathon (3-23-14)...and stay there (as of 12-09-13 was at 214lbs)

                    3) Get to 190 lbs by the end of May…and stay there!

                    4) Complete Ironman Chattanooga in under 14 hours

                    5) Break 4 hours in a stand alone marathon (Goal race=Rocket City 12/13/14)

                    5) 4,500 total overall miles for the year:

                             Swim: 100 miles

                             Bike: 3,000 miles

                             Run: 1,400 miles


                    And in the end...

                       

                      The fact this looks like an extended middle finger is no coincidence... heh.

                      ------------------------

                      The GITM is moot.

                        What a coincidence.  Here's the new route:

                        And in the end...

                          Monkey finger?

                          ------------------------

                          The GITM is moot.

                            Beware, batbear...

                              Is this the place where we place bribes to get weighted in the lottery?  

                               

                              If so, here's my pitch:  If I get in, not only will this be my first marathon (go ahead, make your fun) but I will bring at least a growler each from each of Asheville's top 5 craft breweries, and a case or so of home brew if anyone is interested...

                              2012 Goals:

                              7.  Have fun!
