I have TONS of problems with this posting... it is riddled with errors. For each time it says 'race' I assume you ran a warmup, so 'technically' your warmups would be your first runs.

Your welcome ;)

I can see you on Antartica. A CMS hoodie, pink running shoes, huge gloves and 7 pairs of tights. And Khatoolas. Congrats on fnishing the 50.

I was there for the Maine race, Florida race, Missouri race, Vermont race, Wisconsin race and Rhode Island race. And all warmups and cooldowns:).
Congratulations DD!

David Quintal said...

Oh yeah, the Mississippi race,the one I like to forget!

double-d said...

True. I thought the first time I raced somewhere was more important than the first time I ran somwehere. That is why sometimes they do not match.

Thanks for reading!

Somewhere I have stats for how many miles I've run with Petey and Mike Beeman. Maybe I should figure it out for all people I did.

Would I be an ass if I added CT to the list because I ran in that race, too.
The funniest race had to be the Eastern XC race in RI (Bryant College) when Double D out kicked me while he raced in training shoes (New Balance).

I remember that well. I had on trainers and high white socks. Totaly forgot my racers and George was going to send someone back for them. I figured it wouldn't make that much of a difference!

Yeah we weren't going that fast anyway.
