Welcome to “PR City.” I’m Steve, Your Mayor.

>> Sunday, February 15, 2009

I just got back from the “Lace Up Against Breast Cancer Half-Marathon” in Rochester, MN, and I brought a PR with me. After the finish, they announced that the course was more like 13.4 miles! So I PRed even though I had to go 0.3 miles too far!!

Here I am about 2 minutes after finishing:

(Yes, that's snot on my black collar to the left. And yes, that's more snot on my hoodie near the lower-right. I was full of snot. Sorry for being real. Whadda gonna do about it? Ha!)

Back with a full report (and pictures) tomorrow...

Marcy 4:06 PM, February 15, 2009  


Dayum son, you needed to blow that snot all over another runner. Not yourself :P

A triumph! You look barely even winded, like you just got back from a little post prandial stroll.

I like you REAL, and so do all BLOGGERS OF TASTE, I'm sure.

Speaking of REAL....

It's time for a GROSS FOOT PHOTO....

Just to prove you really went, right? (You must have some really "tasty" fresh blisters!)

Chloe 5:27 PM, February 15, 2009  

Congrats! That is awesome! Yeah snot :)

Nicole 5:33 PM, February 15, 2009  

Kudos...can't wait for the race report and pics!

Sarah 5:33 PM, February 15, 2009  

This was a roller coaster of emotions for me reading this. It started with "Yeah!! Good for him" - followed quickly with "SICK!!! I didn't need to know about that"

Unknown 5:47 PM, February 15, 2009  

YAY! Way to go... can't wait for the report and pictures (hopefully some without snot, but we understand if that's not possible!)

The Boring Runner 6:12 PM, February 15, 2009  

Nice work!! So, what are they going to do about the extra distance? Was it an official race?

I remember 4 or 5 years ago, there was a quick loop in the KC Marathon that was left off because of a gate closed. Turned out the marathon was only 25.8 miles or something... They had this crazy formula for people trying to qualify for boston. I would have been PISSED.

Marlene 6:44 PM, February 15, 2009  

WAHOO! Congratulations, especially with the extended course! (what's up with that anyway?!)

Michelle 7:14 PM, February 15, 2009  

Wouldn't even have noticed the SNOT had you not pointed it out! Thanks.

Lindsay 8:02 PM, February 15, 2009  

congrats on the pr! thanks for pointing out the snot... don't know how i would've survived without that morsel of information.

MtngirlinCali 8:22 PM, February 15, 2009  

Awesome job on the PR!!! Looking forward to the report.

Sonia 8:45 PM, February 15, 2009  

Looks WARM unlike other races we've seen you at!! Congrats on the PB!!!!

Kevin 9:34 PM, February 15, 2009  

Way to go on the PR. Mustve been pretty warm since you dont look like the stevesicle

Unknown 9:34 PM, February 15, 2009  

Congrats! That is awesome! Did I read this wrong or did you not post the time?

joyRuN 9:52 PM, February 15, 2009  

Congrats on the snotilicious PR :)

CoachLiz 9:59 PM, February 15, 2009  

I shook my Magic 8 Ball and asked if you were going to get a PR and it answered back, "IT IS PROBABLE".

Congratulations and I will be looking for the race report tomorrow.

Amytrigirl (aka Amybee) 10:19 PM, February 15, 2009  

I'd vote for your over Mayor McCheese any day of the week.


Charlotte 10:19 PM, February 15, 2009  

Way to go Steve! Nice work on the PR (and the snottage)!!

Chad 10:30 PM, February 15, 2009  

Awesome job on the PR! Who out there doesn't have a little extra snot during the winter months...

t-odd 7:21 AM, February 16, 2009  

Great job! PRs are always fun - and slightly painful. One piece of advice - do not become a food stylist. That pic of the chili looks disgusting (but I bet it tasted good.) I love the fact that you run as fast as you do with a gray cotton hoodie. Now, go relax a little bit.

sRod 12:36 PM, February 20, 2009  

Congrats on keeping up the gross factor.
