Not Sure What to Title This Topic

Hey @ChrisO, did you see that relay team of tech geeks at Virgil Crest? Five computer nerds formed a rock group to play original songs, then took it a step further by signing up for the 100-mile relay. During the race, they decided to break up the rock group, then promptly DNF’ed while blaming IT band issues.

You may not have done enough damage to your hip at Virgil to require an MRI, but perhaps you should look into a CT Scan.

I dunno what you’re talking about… the CT scan on my leg was negative :grinning:

We have a bad joke sub forum now?

You hear about the guy who signed up for a marathon after having dinner at a bad Mexican restaurant?
Yeah… he figured, “Why not?” Since he already had the runs!

You guys made me wonder what other running jokes are out there. (Not that I was wondering if there are better ones)
I stumbled on this book.

Anyone know if it’s any good?

Is it a bit of hubris to say that without even looking at this that I think we could do better? (And that we missed a helluva opportunity!)

@Jesse nice job to come back from Virgil and finish the Cats tail marathon! Hopefully it was fun. Did you have any high/low points or new challenges during this race? I’m bummed to have missed it and I’m looking to live vicariously.

It wasn’t awesome. I’m pretty burned out. It was a struggle bus. That being said it’s a wonderful course and I will do it again next year if they let me.

burned out?
I can’t imagine that… I mean, Western States, Eastern States, Virgil, Cat’s Tail… There’s almost 3 months left in the year… time for at least 3 more 100s!

Hellgate is now taking applications. Just saying…

I’m turning over my ultrasignup password to a grownup

Ha Ha Ha Ha… @Jesse I think that might be a bad idea, given the adults you know!
Maybe something more automated…
