Having Fun













This morning I did the "Misery Run". It was put on by the club I belong to, http://www.carolinagodiva.org/. It was advertised as:

Things you Need to Know about the Misery Run 2007
What: 5.75ish miles of grassy pastures, rooty, rocky and slippery when wet or muddy single track hiking type foot trails, itchy hay bales and cow pies. This is a time prediction race, you will predict your finishing time prior to the race, and then you will run and sweat.

And I've go to admit, it lived up to its billing. We had to run over haybales (its true about them being itchy) and through a mudhole 3x. Then to top it off the last mudhole had some dark gooey slime that I'm sure was filled w/ pathogens yet to be discovered by scientists.

All in all it was a lot of fun and I got a chance to hang out w/ the running buds. Who could ask for more. Gotta run, me and Lisa are going out for a nice long hike w/ King.
