Total Distance

I wanted to run either Usery Pass this morning or the BoSa Donut challenge sponsored by Cadence Running.  We were supposed to get our $5 in by Thursday.  It's a 15 mile drive to Cadence and I just didn't have time.  But I saw a few people post on the Facebook page that they didn't have time to pay their entry fee, and the store owner told them to come anyway, so I decided to try my luck, also since I need to enter races wearing my Ragnar gear as part of my ambassador commitment.  I got there and was able to pay for my race without a problem.  I saw three former Ragnar teammates of mine.  They started right at 9am.  We ran 1.55 miles to the Bosa Donut parking lot.  There we were supposed to eat 6 donuts and then run back.  I thought I'd see some runners coming back because I wasn't running very fast and some of them were.  I planned on making puking noises at them like Chunk in the Goonies.  But I got there and everyone was still eating.  Actually two ladies had just started back, but they had their remaining donuts in gallon sized Ziplocs.  I gave my ticket to Dan, the owner of Cadence, and asked which plate of donuts weighed the least.  He pointed to a random plate.  I don't think he really knew.  My first donut was pretty good.  Maybe I could do this.  During the 3rd I started to have my doubts.  I got half way through the 4th and thought, that's enough for me.  But I thought it would be easier to carry 2 donuts back than 2.42319.  So I finished the 0.42319 and started to run back.  Surprisingly I didn't see any puke the whole way back.  There was a couple walking down the street and I told them I still had two donuts left if they wanted them.  They politely declined.  I was able to jog all the way back without incident.

Thanks. You're so kind. The middle part of the picture is kinda ugly, but everything else is nice.

Oh, good. I haven't missed the race this year. I will know to bring a couple of bottles of water with me to wash them down this year.
