Just to keep from taking over @LaScozzese's challenge thread.  Why is it so quiet here? 

 

Do we need a schtick?  The warriors have their food schtick (or did anyway, the "sh*t warriors eat" thread is dead as disco).  Pictures of places we end up running?  Beer?  Call each other "Bro" a lot?  Make ourselves a mascot?

 

 

BRUH

I think minis and a schtick such as calling each other "bro" could make things fun and I hope we do that, bro.

 

 

BRUHHHHH

My tongue-in-cheek suggestions:

1) A catchphrase? "May the Speed Force be with you." "Now run, Barry, run!"

2) Adopt the mongoose as a mascot. Apparently mongoose blood makes you run faster.

3) Take solemn oaths not to put those 26.2 stickers on anything we own.

4) Related to Number 2, collectively refer to ourselves as mongeese.

Hello Mongoose bros. I finished my marathon up at 4:43:55.8.

 

In a Nor'easter, in the forties, and the course was hilly. I have chafing in new and exciting places.

 

Thanks for all the internet love along the way scouts.

'daww, look at that face.  My training partner is too old to go over 5k now.  And he doesn't like doing that very often.

Well enough, I suppose.  I have celiacs so I couldn't really do the traditional "eat all the noodles" diet, but I definitely was bouncing off the walls before the run.

Typical hound size, so basically the size of a golden lab just skinnier; I love them but they are not apartment dogs or even really suburban dogs, they are highly energetic and love to talk

 

There was a story of a coonhound that started running with a half marathon at mile 1 and completed the thing; I'll try to find the story

If I had money to invest, I would open up a cross fit/ninja gym that had this as it's running track; http://www.businessinsider.com/nike-track-race-led-ghost-yourself-manila-philippines-interactive-running-shoe-foot-lap-2017-5

I've got a question about the post-challenge worksheet. Are we supposed to post the results or it it just something for us to have?
