Beer Fest
by MonkeyPig (guest blogger)








There were more people this year - 1250. Here is the opening. There were Tamahumara Indians in their native dress of the Copper Canyon in Northwestern Mexico. There is also a Mini-Marathon for the kiddies. I saw two guys in somberro.
I guess I was anticipating the wind and the fact that I finished the 07's Marathon -- I concentrated on running a bit faster to compensate for the wind. After a PB&J (extra PB) sandwich, 400 mg caffeine, and 3000 mg ibuprofen strategically taken lastnight,
this morning and around mile 18, and one pack of sugar-gel, I crossed the finish line. The official time was 4:23. I made 4 piss stops, 1 p--p stop. , waiting in line for the porta-potty, I think my run time is 4:10 - 4:13.

I was totally surprised. I didn't expect anything but to raid the free food and get free pens after the race. I was talking to Ca-Loc when they called my name. After the 2nd call, I realized they were calling me. The guy (26 years old) that won finished the race in 2:43 and the gal (40 years old) that won finished it in 3:22. From the grand scheme of thing, 4:10 aren't that good. I guess if you are old enough, they'll give you a medal for the amount of sunspots and wrinkles on your face. My little "medal" is really small. Thank you for all your encouragements.

Oh..I forgot.
I was a little pissed off @ Michelob. At mile 3, they had a beer stand -- going free beer to the runners.
I don't mind Michelob giving free beer at the end of the race when people are finished running. It always make good business for the hospital as dehydrated people get more dehydrated with alcohol. But to give free beer @ mile 3...sheeesh..

What medal did you win??? You didn't tell me about any medal when I talked to you this morning.

I can't believe you took so many bathroom breaks. It was only a little over 4 hours and you had to go to the bathroom that many times? What gives?? I thought your bladder was huge. (For those who don't know, MonkeyPig, being her competitive self, once sneered at me and told me that her bladder was bigger than mine. *eyes*) And, what, no bo jai yuen today? Too good for bo jai yuen, are we?

That's awesome. If I ran, they'd by calling my name on the list of runners your could find at the morgue. ;)

Congrats, MP. I would have won the five Nonny Nu points if you hadn't taken sooooooo many bathroom breaks. I was betting on your speed and immense bladder because you hyped your control last year. Remember these words?

To be a truly certified refugee, you must have the following qualifications:
1. Look like a refugee when wearing a $5k Vera Wang dress.
2. Have big bladder to hold 4 big cups of ice-tea.
3. Have surgical-steel stomach for those buy-one-get-one-free momments.
4. Be able to casually break off areas of moldy food without arousing your co-worker / classmate's notice.
5. Have skin so thick as to look the waiter in the face for the 4th refill or the 3rd request for more soysauce.

No I got the soysauce from another place.

The crab was eaten VietNamese style -- lemon / salt / pepper.

Sheeesh
I am wounded from all these darts that people are throwing.
Yes, I do have an immense bladder. Just when the water balloon is bouncing all over the place, its hard to concentrate. Mind you, I was so well hydrated that my pee was clear and white at the end of the race!!!! You can't beat that!!!The water and gatorate was free....

NNN, I didn't let you know I had a medal because I didn't know. I thought everyone was done with their run and I was one of the last ones.
As I was piggy out on the free burritos / fruit / bottle water and more talking on my free-minutes time, I heard my name being called.

MonkeyPig said...

Man from U.N.C.L.E., you see, I still keep the FOB tradition.

Nonny Nu said...

MonkeyPig, so what was the medal for? Geez, do you answer your patients this way?

Patient: "Am I pregnant?"
Dr. Pig: "I have huge bladder!!"
