WARNING: there are 2 semi-gross images in this post. They're not bad, but you maybe don't want to be eating oatmeal or chucky vegetable soup while reading this. You have been warned.
As they've done the last couple of years, Kare11 has archived their streaming video coverage from the end of the TC 10 Mile and TC Marathon. When I watched myself finish, I saw something I clearly remembered: being greeted with a smile and a half-hug from a man in an orange vest:
Walking across the line with a smile for the guy in the orange.
After a word of congratulations, a smile, and a pat on the back.
I went back in the video a few minutes, and I found a 22-year-old named Sam who was the one making the mess at the finish line:
He pushed to break 60 which he DID, so it was all worth it. I hope.
Nearing the line.
Hitting my watch on the mat.
I didn't even notice the covered up puke.
Just as the "puke guy" was about to come over and congratulate me.
If you want to see the video, go to this Kare11 video link, and click on the "8:00 - 8:15" link near the bottom. Sam (the puker) starts doing his stuff just 30 seconds in, and I cross around the 2:30 point.
Speaking of barf, did you see my last post about my "Kitten Mile?" :)
