So, what is a runner to do? Waste away the summer on the couch watching the 40 different singing / dancing / whoring reality shows? Just like the kids say - "Hells to the no". Run the 2nd annual Sweat Your Thorns Off 5K Virtual Race! June 25th 2011!
I like my logos like I like my end of world predictions to flop - BIG
Last summer, I hosted a real-live race get together. At that time we were 4 Phoenix Runners strong, getting together to Sweat Our Thorns Off while running 3.1 miles. It was hot, and I sweated more than a hooker in church, but it was a blast. Race bibs (that I sweated all the way through), finishers medals, and free swag bags were all part of the adventure.
One hot, sweaty, mess
Not to be outdone by the summer heat, this winter, I decided to kick it up a notch. Not only did we get together in Phoenix and Freeze Our Thorns Off, but I opened the race up to the internet! 135 runners from around the globe participated surpassing all of my wildest dreams.
Burrrrrr. Don't we all look freezing?
