Tomorrow morning I will be taking part in the 12th Annual Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk around and through Miller Park. This will be the third time I have taken part, and the first since 2008.
Last week I picked up my registration packet on the early pick-up day. It makes things easier not to have to deal with standing in line on race day, then humping back to your car with whatever you don't want to have with you during the run. Plus, there's a decent shot of getting a T-shirt that actually fits me, since all of the normal-human-sized shirts are usually gone by the time I get my stuff. Anything larger than an adult medium for me and I'm fucking drowning in it. The shirt looks great this year, yellow instead of the usual white, although the slogan is a little too cutesy for my taste. My wife and I also get a voucher for a future Brewer game and a hot dog and beverage after the race.
I'm pretty psyched about the run, since this is the best I've felt during a period leading up to one. To add some intrigue, I'm going to let you make a guess as to my finishing time in this 5k run. The person with the guess closest to my actual time (format - mm:ss, like 28:05) will receive a prize of a care package of cards of the team of their choice. If you want, look for clues in past blog posts as to the time I might record. I have written about running in the past.
Each person may make one guess up until 8:00 AM Central time Saturday morning. Good luck!
