Well DK went out and bought himself a toy so I signed up to do this race. I hemmed and hawed about it for a while but the cool medal finally did me in. It's made of wood.
I found this on US Road Running and they have some interesting races coming up. I did it Friday on the treadmill and here's my time.
When I last checked I had come in 11th over all and 4th in my age bracket. They post the results of those who give their time, right on the website so you can see where you stand against the other folks who did the race. Which I think is kinda fun.
