Yes, it's overcrowded, boring, hot, etc, but damn it, we like to puke for various reasons (disgust, over exhaustion, boredom). So, on Friday, August 10th, we will do the first running EVER of the camelback marathon. This race is put on by a rogue group of phantom race directors - the LALAS! Race goes from 9am-3pm. You have as long as it takes for Alexander to go to school to compete the marathon. This is appx. 10 trips over and back camelback (not completely accurate, but close). Figures loosely put this at 20k of elevation gain, but then again, I can't add. Bring your own water, food, etc, and the 1 lb. bag of dried beans for the race fee.
If all goes well, another marathon will begin the following friday called the Thompson Peak (fuck you) Marathon.
Thank you, and carry on.
