Science Experiment

Take one pair of running shoes.

Expose to wet, muddy conditions for an extended period of time.

Put wet, muddy shoes into a plastic bag.

Tie the bag shut.

Put the bag in the laundry room, which is uninsulated and maintains an average room temperature of 50 degrees.

Leave the bag there for a week.

Open the bag, and realize that you've grown grass in your shoes!

North Face Endurance Challenge Marathon

I've been trying to figure out what to say about this race for the past week, when really all that needs to be said is this:

26.2 miles of rainy, hilly, muddy trails in 6 hours and 42 minutes equals a really big smile at the finish line.
