(Slightly Less) Hosed

so the latest is that nike has sort of reversed themselves and is now giving her a prize equal to the "other" winner's. so you see, there are TWO winners! how very egalitarian of them.

that's awesome! I'm sure Nike got a bunch of nasty emails about it. Giving her equal winnings is only fair and come on, it's not like they don't have the funds.

"In a reversal, race organizers said Wednesday morning that O’Connell and Colligan would both be considered winners of the marathon. Though there was no prize money awarded in the race, both will have first-place trophies."

She get the trophy now, along with all this national attention. She could probably get a superbowl commercial after this.

I'd also like to point out a few things about this picture:

1) Her shorts are too long, those are like dudes' shorts. Except even I wouldn't wear them that long.

2) I can see her bellybutton.

3) Her heel strike is worse than even mine is.

4) She is wearing a pink thing around her head, and has really long hair. Oh and looks kind of scary.

I think the headband is killer and was going to wear it for relay race night. We doing that this year?

"it squeaks when I bang it, that's what she said" (Office 10/23)

1) That Office quote was fantastic.

2) We had a small relay night the other week. This week I will not be running, or probably the week after New York, BUT we definitely have to have relay night.

So let's target 11/11 for relays!
