Tomorrow I'll be heading down to the swampy trails of the first state and pick up another ten laps at the Fattest Butt 50K.
I am not taking this race very seriously, and may opt for less than ten laps. This is definitely more of a social event for me, just to hang out and see some friends.
The RD isn't taking it very seriously either. Here is a message he sent to us a few days ago:
Subject: Fat Butt next Sat...This is NOT a RACE
"OK Sluggos, y'all know the drill ... Be-Low Fat Ass-Style ... Not a Boston Qualifier, But tyme will be Kept ... Be at park gate @ 8 AM, and be sure to bring what-ever sustenance ya need to finish with ya. As always, TSI will supply stale bread and pond water. Easiest 50K non-event (In The World ... 99.99% finish rate) ...you must finish not under 4 hrs, but before dark. In past, Temps have been 0 to 75 degrees & we've had rain, snow, sun, hail, sleet ... blind flyin' squirrels have been wicked this winter, be sure to bring yer repellent... "
And people wonder why I love doing this stuff. (:
That reminds me.. i've gotta go pick up some blind flyin' squirrel repellent.
(sorry this blog post is a little late. i was up late last night.)
