Couple Things....

First things first....for those you of who are new to the concept of dragonboating, here is a little introduction:

People get drunk, there's lots of cheering, it's awesome. That's all you need to know.


Second, for the .2 of you out there who may be interested in an absurdly long run this weekend, send me an email or whatev to get in touch with me. I am leaving bmore early (4:45) on sunday morning and running for about 5-5.5 hours on the AT section of the JFK course. You can run with me, run faster than me, go for a hike, ride your bike, or sit in the car, I don't really care. Just be aware that in Boonsboro, MD there is not much else to do other than those options. I'm not really up for negotiating time/day, but if it works for you and you want to come with, then by all means holler for a dollar.

Holy shit, Boonsboro. I plan on being out that way on Sunday as well, except suffering up and down the mountains on my bicicleta. And actually my 53 miles will probably be about the same distance you're going. I hate it out there, there truly is nothing to do. Maybe we can all meet up at the Wendy's near Frederick right off 70.

the word "all" seems to imply that somebody's joining her. i'm a little offended for t (and his team), and very offended for my run this weekend. given your 5.5 hour bataan death march (look it up), i no longer feel that i can call 2.5 hours "long". my run feels bad about itself. i hope you are happy.

Kris don't be so hard on yourself. This weekend might not be so long but you've done some pretty long runs in the past:

Kris - I know everyone thinks I'm really young, but I have been to school and know what the Bataan Death March is without looking it up. Just because I talk slash type in abbrevs doesn't mean I'm stup. And don't worry, the rest of the world thinks 2.5 hours is long too.

I like how you actually typed "slash" when the proper would have been "/", but I guess in the grand scheme of things it is more apropos to type out the word slash.

Slash of course being a derogatory term for a woman's vagina. My high school friends and I call each other that when one of us is being a bitch, and we give out Slashies (which are awards for being the slashiest)

i think that comment was just an excuse for you to try to make it look like you had friends in high school.
