Psycho Psummer

Great time volunteering at this past weekends Psycho run. The Nerds always put on a quality event and I had been jonesing for the opportunity to help a little at one of their races. Some thoughts:

- to the two people I sprayed with water who were disgusted with it: I am sorry, I don't know what I was thinking. I look forward to seeing the two of you in the next movie about Badwater.

- to the guy who simultaneously threw up and thanked me for holding him up while he did so: you are welcome, sir.

- if you ran this race, you know by know that there is no part of your body I will not ice/massage/etc...'nuff said.

- thanks for the beer, Brett! Nothing says ultra volunteer like a steady diet of PB&J sandwiches and alcohol.

- Thank you to all the runners, and congratulations for having the courage to be there.

- I can't imagine the amount of work that goes into planning and executing this race. Thanks to all those who made it happen.

Peace.

Thanks for your time Lee, Not for me but for all the other runners out there who would be lost if it were not for your unselfish act of volunteering. Your trianing will get to where it needs to be. Just try not to get caught up too much in what other people are doing. I would drive myself crazy and probably be injured a lot if I tried to match what Tony Krupicka does. Stay true to yourself man. That's the only way we can keep this sport real.

Your help was much appreciated by both Ben and me.

If you were the guy spraying, I first have to say that when it happened, I was like, "WTF?" But then after a mili-second, I was like, "Thank God, please continue!". That short water spray instantly cooled me down and no doubt helped me finish and was much appreciated. Thanks for volunteering!

I knew I should have had some PB&Js with my beer. See you again soon.

Lee, been trying to get in touch with you. Don't think I have your right number. Call or e-mail!

I’m still laughing with this post! Keep up the good work. It's nice to see the humor in what we do.
