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.

brew to brew.

brew to brew is a local tradition. a 44-mile relay race that begins at boulevard brewery in kansas city and ends at free state brewery in lawrence. there, runners feast on bread, fruit, beer and jambalaya at liberty hall.

my team had fiver runners, each running two legs. i ran the first leg but missed the starting gun by a few seconds because i was peeing behind a dumpster. true story. this photo was taken after i successfully dumpster-peed, ran and high-fived andy who ran next.

while andy was running, we began to hear thunder and see lightening.


but weather didn't bother nick one bit. he suffered through the elements (and miles) with only a hoodie and his mind set on lawrence.

one of the last hand-off points of the race that took us more than six hours was near (read: on) a train track. andy was up last for the team.

we waited and waited to see his yellow shirt come around the bend. so that team nick crofoot (captained by yours truly) could head to the food, beer and bathroom.


obviously, a good time was had by all. although, in this photo, only the ladies were ready for the shot.
that's better. go team.
