they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

And then, we were finished.

Thanks to the Kansas City Star's, community faces link, I give you my Brew-To-Brew team's final runner, Mark Vanderweide. He ran a crazy-fast last leg and finished the 44 miles for us strong. (We actually finished an hour quicker than the clock behind him claims. It started at 6 a.m. when the first group of runners took off. We were in the 7 a.m. group.)

    I totally should have run the last leg! It's all about the fame and glory.

    Ohmygod...44 miles. You must stop writing about this, as I get tired every time I come here and read about it. I don't know how you do it, girlie! Very impressive, really...

    Especially as you had to do all this on a cold and icky day at 7 in the morning. Bravo. Seriously.

    Hope your legs and feet are feeling better!!

    I know, but STILL! You're talking to a girl that likes to stick to the nice, happy pace of 1 mile/20 minutes on her treadmill each day, ok? So let's see...9 miles would take me about 3 hours to complete at that pace...very cool.

    I used to run back in college when a PE coach I had gave me a great tip for a style of running that worked really well for me. But after I graduated from college, I went to the gym once with the Twin, and she proceded to make fun of that style of running...and I haven't been able to get my stride back ever since. Weird, eh?

    Wow. Totally famous. How do you all do this running?

    Did Gatorade come out with some new kind of drink I don't know about?

    hmm...maybe some sort of drink that gives you superhuman abilities.
