As if the very gods were with them that Saturday morning of the 2012 Tuxedo race, it rained just enough to turn the course into a mud filled trail of slippery rocks and slick grass. And if that wasn't enough, just before we went off at 11:30, out comes the sun to bake us in the starting corral and pound on us throughout the run. Again, very early on, I knew that I had been out matched. It would be all I could do to finish this course as well...and I was left to hatch my plans for the next meeting! Finish I did...not in the manner of the victorious master, but with the relentless pursuit of a goal that should have been out of my reach.
Great job and thanks to Joe, Mike and all the Spartan people. Come back WITH your shields! Until next time....AROO!!
