I didn't run this year. I sat in the back of my car and passed out donuts. I handled the state-of-the-art video for the finish line and monitored the new chip-timing.
It was fun, but I have to admit it was kind of sad to not get to run.
It was a glorious morning...
On the cold side, but not as frigid as last year.
I arrived early like a good race director should...armed with donuts and prizes and the trophy...
I had a hunch there would be very few runners so I offered donuts to hikers. Again, some looked at the smiling, donut-offering weirdo with suspicion while others gleefully accepted. Lesson for all of you: gleeful is way better than suspicious...it's a much more enjoyable way to go through life.
Jen showed up first...rarin' to go. Since RoseRunner had failed to respond to my wake-up text, we assumed she would be a no-show and Jen went on her merry way.
Forty-five minutes later, RoseRunner and her husband whipped into the parking lot and sauntered over to the start line, thinking that this year's chip-timing would be working in their favor. It wasn't. Lesson for all of you: prompt arrival at that start of a race can be the difference between #winning and losing.
Here comes Jen, sprinting to the chips!
*VIDEO ISSUES. WORKING ON IT*
but you may never get to see it :(
#JBH2013 was over and the victor was ... ummm... donut-ed.
|I always like to use super flattering photos of my friends.|
|And scenic backdrops.|
Many thanks to the three runners who showed and many thanks to the several virtual participants!
I aim to put together a round-up of the virtual recaps, so please email or tweet me your link AGAIN...I just moved and things have been pretty chaotic and I don't want to miss anyone!
Thus, Jen joins the winners who came before her...

FOR TIME IMMEMORIAL!
