There is no way on the face of this planet that I could do justice to Reach the Beach right now. You will get a full race report soon, but I will tell you several things right now:

1. We finished. Team MLC (Team Mid-life Crisis—but I really enjoyed all of your guesses!) was amazing. All 12 members of this team completely crushed the course. It was fabulous.

2. Every single one of my teammates is a remarkable person.

3. The race was really, really fun.

4. I am in the process of screwing Future Stimey right now by conspiring with my teammates to think of other relays Team MLC could do.

5. Our official time was 33:36:26, with an average pace of 9:49 minutes per mile.

6. My pace, while slower than the above number, was faster than I had planned. I couldn’t be happier.

7. This is Algernon and me reaching the beach:

    2. So what was all the fuss about, eh? JK… ;-)

    3. Can’t wait to hear about the next set of adventures you cook up for Future Stimey!

  3. Congratulations to you and your whole team! Sorry, it sounds like that field I told you to daydream in was probably a mud pit…. But I’m glad you had a great time anyway, so I don’t have to feel too guilty about misleading you.
