So a few weekends ago now, my friend Kimber and I drove up to Des Moines to run in the Glow Run 5K with my cousin Jer. I sort of planned it as a pre-Hospital Hill race experience, to encourage me and keep me going. It, uhm, did not go as planned. Basically, we ate a huge meal at a German restaurant before the race, drank a ton of beer, got pretty toasted, had to pee super bad during the middle of the race, cut through an alley and ended up reconnecting with the race at the finish line. A well-run race it was not. However, I did run 3.1 miles at home the next day to soothe my guilty conscience.
It took us forever to drink. It was almost painful.
So, we started to take this photo and it turned out really bad. We decided just to make it a bad photo, in that case.
Have you ever gotten out your phone to take a pic and you’ve forgotten it’s in the forward facing mode? Yeah, so have I.
