A “fatass” 50K in jorts

Shawn sent me pictures of himself running the 2011 Halloweeny Fatass 50K in Rohrersville, MD on October 29, 2011. Before we get to his pictures, I need to know how in the heck the words “fatass” and “50K” can be in the same race name? What’s next? Cellulite Triathlon? Beer Gut Iron Man?

It was a costume race and Shawn dressed up as the construction worker from the Village People (imagine running with that leather tool belt!).  He wore the jorts despite 30 degree temperatures and a rain and snow weather mix.

$350 of $1000 raised! So much love from me to you.

You know when someone recommends [enter item here] and says, “Oh, you will like this”? And then soon thereafter another person says, “Hey, [enter your name here], you need to check out [enter same item here]”? And then a third person says, “[enter same item here] is right up your alley”? Then you finally check out [enter item here], and are pissed at yourself that you didn’t listen to the first person that recommended it and you feel like you’ve been missing out?

The latest time that the above has happened to me is with the blog Steve in a Speedo?! Gross!

To all you “friends” that knew about this little treasure trove of awesomeness and DIDN’T tell me about it, I’m re-evaluating our so-called friendship. Seriously.

Go read. Don’t wait. I guarantee that you’ll enjoy the musings of a seemingly great guy – athlete, father, funnyman, and wearer of…um…jorts during races.
