In my Mudball race report, I noted that I started in a pack of 5, and was running in 3rd by the time we finished the first loop (the first mile). I was mistaken. I got that mixed up with the end of the SECOND loop. Here’s a photo of our pack of 5 finishing the FIRST loop:
(Side note: Michael, AKA Rocco, writes many of the posts on Run Minnesota, the blog that goes along with MDRA magazine, which is also called “Run Minnesota.” I like his sassy, self-deprecating style of writing. Here’s his write-up for the MDRA Mudball. Check it out.)
I forgot to mention something in my race report. Around the 2.5 or 3.5 mile point of the race, I was getting ready to pass a man and a woman. As I was coming around the guy, he turned to spit. He spit over his left shoulder JUST AS he saw me there. Right away, he said “Oh jeez! I’m sorry!!” I just laughed and said “No problem! You missed me! Ha!” (At the doughnut run 2 years ago, I was actually spit on. And that’s extra gross because we all had mouthfuls of doughnuts...)
They’re talking some rain for today’s half marathon. Shoot. I hope to wear the “bowl full of sunshine” shorts for the race:

Good luck to Robby, Stu, Rural Girl, and my lovely Pharmie who are all racing in the Pine Line Half Marathon with me today! (There's a good chance that the 5 of us will make up around 10% of the race! Really!) Check my Twitter page this afternoon, as I hope to be able to tweet how we all did!! Here we go!!!
