Winni, Winni, Chicken Dinni: Lake Winnipesaukee Relay (9/7/13)

Team Picture (back Dan, John, Marc, Tim; front - Steve, Aaron, Seth, Jesse)
Race: Lake Winnipesaukee Relay
Location: Lake Winnipesaukee, NH
Goal Time: 1:20:00
Actual Time: 1:17:04
Relay Time: 8:37:58
Pivo Index: 1; apparently it's already invented and it's a snakebite, not a "shander." (Not enough people like Portmanteaus - portmanteaux?)

Seth, Tim and I were standing in the parking lot of El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant awaiting Aaron to run by.  We were talking to two people from the Wicked Running Club.  The woman asked us: "What running club are you guys from?  You're so much bigger than most runners."

Indeed.  Each of us are over 6 foot 200 lbs.  Not your typical runners.  The Kings of Beer - as the Clydesdale team - are the big guys.

We ran it last year; but with Johnnie O on daddy duty and Tim Harden in St Louis on uncle duty we needed to pick up two new Kings. Enter Tim Sullivan and Steve Smrcina.  The eight of us brought it ...

There are rumors this may have been the last Lake Winnepesaukee Relay, which would be distressing.  But I'm already looking into new venues for the Kings of Beer: Vermont? Nova ScotiaNevadaNorway?

Aged with Attitude - 1st 50+
En Fuego and Chafin the Dream - 1st and 3rd womens'
