how to have fun at a half marathon in twelve easy steps:

step 1: dress up like a jacka$$, bring a friend.


step 2: get to the race just as the national anthem is starting as to not annoy people at the beginning.

step 3: make your mark through out the race so that people know you've been there.


step 4: double the mark at mile 2


step 5: have your friend help out at the water station. then proceed to go to the gatorade table and tell people "water sucks, gatorade is better." people never tire of it.


step 6: continue to shout like a holigan until your voice goes.

step 7: make sure you are having fun


step 8: think of kona and how you may be there one day


step 9: make sure the volunteers are having fun


step 10: distribute the rest of the leis that have been hanging by your sweatty a$$ the entire race.

step 11: finish with style
race volunteer "hey guys, hang on. we have to see if the mat read your chips."
noz "what?"
rv "we don't think the mat read your chips since you jumped about three feet over them."
noz "oh. oh, no worries. we don't care."
rv "really? you may not be in the results."
noz "nope, don't care."
*note - the boss did a cartwheel over the finishing mat. i love her so.

step 12: enjoy the post race banquet
