This past weekend Scott and I last minute decided to participate in a local 3 mile race: The Spillway Class Trail Run. While I've been taking my training a little more seriously and cutting back on silly races, this was a hard one to turn down. Features included:
Lots of mud...
and perhaps the best part: a post race shower to clean off :)
I was sold!
I figured I could substitute my tempo run for a 5k... ( Don't tell my coach!)
The race took place in the local Naw-lins swamp lands of course. And while they may call it a race, this my friends is one of those races you can't take too seriously. Having rode nearly 70 miles the day before and barely surviving my 3000 m swim, my legs were in no condition to truly race. Therefore I have no real race report to provide. Instead, I would like to highlight some of the main events. This my friends is what I call a road race!
Drunk med students sipping beer from a pee-bottle
and Tutu man singing some crazy song about a watermelon..... I think my face describes it all ~
New Orleans clearly takes their post race partying very seriously. Probably a little more seriously than the race. I guess this is what happens when you combine alcohol and super skinny endurance athletes.
