Como Se Llama

Como Se Llama! They use these guys to stock the Hope (less) Pass Aid Station.
Pre-race with Robo, Michelle and Alisa. Shoot Alisa ran almost as far as we did because she paced someone to the finish from mile 60. The rest of us, well... er, you know the story.



Hey, I'm stuck at school cause it took me 2 hours just to order some stinking Internet from Verizon on-line. They suck, if can afford another service get it, they have the worst customer service I have ever seen! Mary, you shouldn't have retired, they have gone to Hades in a handbasket, and I don't mean maybe!

Ok, anyway, I promised Leadville pictures, so here you go:

Chaser before the pain. He coulda made it, he coulda been a contender, he just needs to do a better job picking his running mates!
Gee, I sure wish these clouds would clear!

Hey, wait that snow wasn't there yesterday! Isn't this August.

I was feeling pretty good here, but they wanted me to climb that! And I did it! Only I did it about 1 1/2 hours after the time cut-off. Yoikes! Not many of these in FLA!

I met this cool Doctor lady, she was Dutch, from the Netherlands, of course I was thinking from the Netherworld when she wouldn't let me take Oxygen at the Hope Pass aid station! That meant I had to keep going even though making the next cut-off was Hopeless.
Pre-race in Leadville, that is NOT an inviting sky!

After the race I needed several of these to forget.... And the hangover, it wasn't so bad!

The drive back to Denver. You know, we rarely get this much snow in Florida, in August. Very rarely, as a matter of fact August is our 12th snowiest month!

I have ordered Internet! We should be regular by this time next week.

And Professor, word on the street is that SuperDave is coming to Arkansas. He'll be signing autographs on Friday afternoon!

I'm a fan of regularity. Have you tried bran muffins?

Arlene said...

The cost of Internet is not exactly a penny for your thoughts (ha ha), but I'm proud of you for making this MOVE to become regular!

I'm sure that you feel better already!

Been roughage without internet, no doubt. I'm jazzed about "Our can saw" (BTW, the pics are great).

AndyMan said...

Yeah SuperD, the pictures are great aren't they? Not to mention, Como Se Lama, that's priceless. But still it's the bran muffins that are the binding link. shoulda figured.

Star said...

Dang it! Chase beat me to the punch. So my comeback is: "You'll never be REGULAR, Andy." Awww shish, that just isn't as good.

Anyway, cool pix...if you're sightseeing. I would have quit before the race even started had I seen snow. So good on ya.

What Andy doesn't tell you about the Dutch doctor is her little aside to me ... Andy comes out of the medical tent at 12,600 feet, looking (let's face it) pretty rotten, but says, "Doc tells me I'm okay, just got to keep moving" ....

.... he goes and gets something to eat. The doc comes over to me, and whispers, in her Dutch accent, "Stay Viss Him!"

Bran muffins have never been binding...for me anyway...

Sorry...had to...
