It was nice. Some hiccups… where they told us to park wound up being a mile or so from the bib pickup and bus loading at the start and the finish line at the end… and me being too cheap to pay $15 to park at the beach I was another half mile or so […]
Native Pima Indian legends inspired the name for The Superstition Mountains in the area. In the 1840s, the Peralta family of Northern Mexico mined massive amount of gold from the mountains… but on their last expedition to carry gold back to Mexico, the tale is told that they were ambushed by Apaches and all were […]
My stomach was feeling a little rough out there on the course today. Look, it’s my fault. I drank a bunch of wine last night. I admit it, I own it, I take responsibility for what happened. But in true 21st Century entitled whinge fashion, I am also going to blame my hard wired lizard […]
I really have to stop doing these “leave the apartment at midnight, drive five hours, run a marathon, then drive home” adventures. Is it the mileage on the road or the mileage on the race course that takes the biggest toll? A question for the ages… or the aged as the case may be. It […]
I’ve run Rock N Roll Marathons before. In fact, way, way back in 2007 I ran ALL of their events and was a ROCK STAR, a bonus distinction for having run the whole thing. Paid extra for my medal and had it framed and on my wall for a long, long while back when I […]
So it happened again. Another Dopey Challenge in the books. Day 4 is over and done with. I was over and done with probably at mile 16 today. Some minor aches and pains but mostly I was just exhausted. There wasn’t much oomph left in the ol’ running tank. I was just tired of running, […]
Judging by the runDisney character appearances, “Hercules” is the most biggest cultural event of the 1990s. Yesterday, the longest line I encountered was for Hercules himself; today, the longest line was for Hades’s minions of doom, Pain and Panic. Besides being Disney comic relief gold, I suppose the duo could also be considered the poster […]
Mystery solved… He was rocking an American flag jacket… He was carrying two bags of ice… And he had Grogu… AKA BABY Yoda… So he had Ice, Ice, Baby… Ladies and gentlemen, word to your mother… he was Vanilla Ice.
Cooler temperatures, bigger crowds… and an attempt by runDisney to evoke more of the 1990s retro-vibe by leaning into the Rescue Rangers/DuckTales/Darkwing Duck of afternoon syndication and a 1997 theatrical Hercules. Bumped into some folks I know… a real Prince and Princess… Ted Lasso has a message for us all… *** He had a wig […]
Muggy and humid. And crazy early. Yup. That’s my Florida in January schedule. Day 1 of 4 is in the books.
