First, I thought of Petey in Remember the Titans. That's because I was saying (out loud, of course, even though only the deer and possums were there to hear me) really sarcastic comments like "Gee, running is sure fun" and "This course does not at all blow goats."
Then, during one of the two incredibly long stretches between aid stations (okay, it was only 5+ miles between aid stations, but it seemed like eternity), I thought of David After Dentist. "Is this going to be forever?"
I named all my flasks of EFS slurry, as I mentioned in my last blog post. After tasting some for the first time as I began the race, I decided that the next flask I make will be called Khlav Kalash.
Finally, in the home stretch of the race, I was reflecting on what a sarcastic mood I was in. Given that I've been debating whether to use a pacer or not in an upcoming 100 mile race, I started thinking about this Gap Girls skit from SNL:
I'm thankful I still had a sense of humor by the end of the race, even if it's a weird sense of humor.
