I Survived......................barely

Eight guys running approximately 270 miles across the state of Michigan, for no apparent reason.

  • Lots of running and drinking of BEvErages
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Consuming tons of junk foods
  • Trails that consisted of sand, rocks and tree roots
Wasn't that a partay!

Here I am making sure no on takes my BEvERage, notice the knee brace? Well that knee was shot on Day one. I took a shit load of Ibuprofen for the weekend.

Did I mention that we camped out too????????

It was definitely time for a red cup also...

My team finished in 36th place out of 44 teams. We had a lot of fun and I saw a few friends that I haven't seen in quite a while.

The race finish on the beach of Lake Michigan...

I forgot to mention that we traveled through a lot of wooded areas and one of our vehicles had a run in with a deer......

Fortunately the car was drivable but the damage was done......... and no we didn't get to keep the deer.

...see to Michiganders, whether or not we get to keep the deer after we mutilate it with our car is a very important question!
