Get under 3 hours one more time...
Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...
Fun times with good friends.
Feeling my age but going strong...
Which one is the "before" picture? Nice work!
looks like fun - nice beard you got going there
Thanks to both of you. Definitely an event that leads to team building and finding your limits.
Looks like a fun group of guys to compete with. Nice job!
Jeff, Most are not runners but have expressed interest in a Ragnar, but we would need others you potentially game?
Maybe, depends on where and when. This summer is pretty slammed for my family.
Likely not until next year. They've already been signing up for at least one maybe two other TMs for this year...
Did you guys change shirts between photos, or did your neon yellow really turn that shade of green?
Jon, Isn't that insane! Definitely amazing what tricks light can play. Plus I didn't want to get pinched for not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day :)
