Delivered!

With your support, I was able to deliver $528.99 in 32:09! Thank you!

For those not good with the numbers, it's an average of 8:02 per mile; or an average speed of 7.48 mph.

To put that into perspective, a Mongolian wild ass can run as fast as 40 mph while a snail moves at a mere 0.03 mph. So I'm somewhere inbetween an ass and a piece of snot.

Can you see the resemblance?

Racing to Deliver

That's me at 3.75 miles. And if it looks like I'm suffering, it's because I am.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well I did. I even managed to pick up speed and sprint the last 50 feet or so - which was pretty hard considering the amount of people running the race (6000+). When I was sprinting toward the end, I had to tap this one guy on the shoulder because he was in my way; I bet I could have cut down the 9 seconds if I just ran him over. But I digress.

In anycase, I attribute my performance to the great running weather. And of course a great pacer (thanks!). And my boopy for his support!

And you, my supporters! Thanks again! (yes, and you too!)

I think the guy behind you in that photo is checking out your ass! ;)

BTW, tell me next time you sign up for one of these things. And tell me early! By the time I realized you had your own donation effort going (for some reason, I thought you were in league with Tuna and Patrick), we had already given to the Gotham Knights' team (that's our rugby team) for the Race to Deliver and to Tuna/Patrick for the Race to Deliver. Not being made of money, we had to stop there!

Sorry!

So that means the people in front of you are better asses and the people behind you are snottier than you are.

That makes you pretty sassy!
