WHY DO THEY LET ME OUT OF THE HOUSE ?

HERE IS A FOLLOW UP TO THE ALASKAN ADVENTURE.

THERE WERE LOTS OF GREAT MOMENTS DURING THE RACE DAY THAT BASICALLY WENT LIKE THIS-OMG YOU ARE REALLY RUNNING IN ALASKA !!!!!THAT WAS RUNNING THRU THE BRAIN 50 TIMES A MINUTE.  AT ALMOST THE 1 MILE MARK I REALIZED THIS LITTLE SCROLLING MESSAGE HAD BLOCKED MY INTENTION TO START MY WATCH. OOOPS. PART OF THE “FUN” IS PLAYING THE AMUSING GAME OF REALLY FOOLING  AROUND FOR THE FIRST 13 MILES AND THEN BEATING THE CLOCK FOR THE SECOND HALF TO BREAK 5 HOURS. THIS IS MY IDEA OF A PERFECT DAY.  I STARTED MY WATCH APPROX 8:37 LATE SO THE MATH TODAY WAS GOING TO REQUIRE STEVEN HAWKIN’S MIND TO GET DONE BY 5 HRS.

AT AROUND 5K I MET MY NEW BEST FRIENDS JESSICA AND PATRICK FROM MA.

THEY WERE DOING A VERY AWESOME GALLOWAY INTERVAL. MORE ON THAT LATER. HERE WE ARE WITH OTHER NEW BEST FRIEND JULIE FROM TN.  YOU TOO CAN HAVE LOTS OF NEW BEST FRIENDS IF YOU JOIN THE MANIACS,

SO AFTER USING LOTS OF SPRINTING I GOT AHEAD OF 2 PEOPLE DOING AN INTERVAL WITH THE LOUDEST BEEPER WATCH EVER, THE GUY ALSO HAD BAREFOOT SHOES ON WHICH MADE MY FEET HURT TO SEE SO I PASSED THEM. PASSING A GALLOWAY RUNNER IS VERY VERY HARD BECAUSE THE SYSTEM REALLY WORKS  FOR SAVING YOUR LEGS FOR A FAST FINISH BY DOING REGULAR WALK BREAKS. SINCE I AM A STUBBORN OLD MULE I USUALLY”RUN” THE WHOLE WAY AND THE GALLOWAY FOLKS ARE WAITING AT THE FOOD TENT WHEN I GET THERE.

WHEW… I AM NOW  ENJOYING THE FOREST AND STAYING ALERT


THINKING TH E WHOLE TIME YOU ARE IN ALASKA !!!!!


WELL WHO DO I RUN UP TO  BUT ANOTHER FELLOW WITH THE LOUDEST BEEPER EVER  (GYM BOSS I THINK)  DOING A 30 SECOND WALK/RUN INTERVAL. WITH 10 LONG BEEPS THE SOUND IS ALMOST CONSTANT. HOW CAN I DO 5 HRS OF THIS ? REMEMBER YOU CANNOT PASS THESE FOLKS- IT IS IMPOSSIBLE- THE TECHNIQUE REALLY WORKS. SO I GET MY COURAGE UP FOR 20 MINUTES AND SAY-SIR WOULD YOU MIND SOFTENING YOUR BEEPER?” THE FELLOW SAYS SURE AND STOPS TO ADJUST HIS WATCH AND PROMPTLY LOSES ALL HIS DATA. OOOOPS-GUILTY AS CHARGED.

WELL 15 MILES LATER I CONFIRM WITH THE OTHER RACERS CONSTANTLY  CALLING HIM JEFF THAT IT IS INDEED…… JEFF GALLOWAY HIMSELF. THE GOD OF THE RUNNING WORLD.    I WANT TO CRAWL UNDER A GLACIER. THEN I REALIZE MY SHORTS ARE ON INSIDE OUT. THIS IS WHY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT I AM SUPERVISED 24/7.

OH WELL… MY LITTLE GAME IS FUN TODAY AND I SAY HI TO JOESPH FROM TN- WHO HAS WILD SHORTS -(RIGHT SIDE OUT) AND MY FUTURE ALASKAN HUSBAND ANDERS  F FROM SWEDEN . YOU CAN ATTEND OUR WEDDING IN GUAM BUT YOU HAVE TO RIDE YOUR BIKE THERE.

ANDERS FROM SWEDEN DOING A 3:31- NICE JOB BIKING VIKING



WELL I WAS SAD TO SEE THIS ADVENTURE END BUT IT WAS TIME TO FLY HOME TO DEBBIE AND SWEET ELLA. AND OFFICIALLY MOVE TO BRADENTON FL.


THE END OF THE STORY WAS A 4:47 AND A CHANCE TO CONGRATULATE RAY SHAW FROM TACOMA AT THE LINE WHO FINISHED HIS 50 STATES

CONGRATS TO RAY SHAW ON YOUR FINISH.

 TIPS TO ALL THE RUNNERS OUT THERE: EXAMINE YOUR FASHION COUTURE EVERY MORNING, REMEMBER WHY YOU WEAR A WATCH AND KNOW YOUR CELEBRITY RUNNERS BEFORE YOU TELL THEM TO SHUT UP.


HAPPY TRAILS TO ALL
BE AWESOME TODAY
