Me, Brad, Kevin, Carlos and Erika signed up for the Jimmy Stewart Relay Marathon.
Scratch that; Brad's sick.
Me, Chris, Kevin, Carlos and Erika signed up for the Jimmy Stewart Relay Marathon.
Scratch that; Chris is sick.
Me, Kevin, Carlos, Erika, and some stranger holding a sign saying "Extra runner looking for team" signed up for the Jimmy Stewart Relay Marathon.
Basically it's a marathon divided by 5 runners- each person does a 5.2 mile loop. It was in Griffith Park, which has some really nice flat, tree-lined trails. But was that the race course? Noooooo... Instead, the first 2 miles was all hills. The last quarter mile was all uphill.
I was runner 4 out of 5, so I got to watch the others. And as the morning went on, it got hotter and hotter. Runner one came in and said "man, that sucked." Runner two came back and said "man, that sucked". I watched many other teams with the same reactions. We were basically like lemmings; everyone seeing the doom that awaited us yet still just following along. Stupid Jimmy Stewart.
The event itself was fun, but then how could it not be with celebrity guest Ted McGinley?
