Reach the Beach 2012

200  miles
24 hours
12 teammates
24 running shoes
2 Ford Expeditions
12 bananas
2 cans of sun block
36 pairs of socks
2 hours of sleep
5 BoMFers
2 full moons
1 jug of animal crackers
3 cases of Gatorade
48 finish line beers
Countless third leg jokes, farts, and poop stories.


Ah, runners.

Mix well, bake for 24 hours, and that's pretty much all you need to make some pretty awesome friendships and some pretty unforgettable times. It's so nice to lace up a pair of sneakers and instantly find camaraderie with "your people," yaknowwhatimean? It's not your average duck who's going to agree to stuff themselves into a smelly SUV for 24 hours, run their heart out day and night and day again, subsist on little to no sleep, master the port-o-potty system, and do it all with a smile and a dick joke.

So much love to RaceMenu for bringing me in the fold this weekend. I had a motherflipping blast. Who's up for a run? Better yet, who's up for a beer?
