In addition to the zzzippp-zzzzipping, while all but one of us slept, er tried to sleep in the tent, P-Funk remained in the van. However, when the last little Half Nut headed to the tent he left the light on inside. Just as we settled we all hear furious pounding outside of the van. We look out to see a a very P.O.’d P-Funk pounding on the inside for someone to come turn the light off in the van. She was in the way back and would have had to climb three rows to shut it off. I totally felt her pain.
Now if you knew P-Funk at all, you would know that she is the nicest most caring, considerate person in the world. Just don’t leave a light on when she is trying to sleep. It was like the alien on the side of the plane in The Twighlight Zone’s Nightmare at 20,000 Feet. LOL! (Sorry P-Funk, I had to use that analogy. You are obviously much cuter.) Upon waking, C Steve sets out for his first run. At this point we have entered Clermont and get to run on some trails, which is nice, except it’s O’Dark Thirty. After C Steve, Shorty Shorts Jason makes his second run seem easy and then it’s my turn again.I was a little tired at this point but not too bad. I had a 4.2 miler run and didn’t realized quite how hilly it was. My lady parts were VERY sore after riding a bike for Jesus John during his first run. Ragnar Lesson #4: Test the bike before offering to be a bike rider for support. Oh my God was the bike too tall! It was funny after, but during the ride I was hurting in my neck, my back, my neck and my back! I also hurt my lady bits and couldn’t hand Jesus John the water to save my life. Poor guy was all over the place trying to get it off the bike. I told him after that I was just trying to get him to run faster. Ok, so back to my 4.2 miler that was hilly as all get out. It wasn’t as big as P-Funk’s hills but it was tough. I managed to pass about three other runners and kept an 8:08 pace. (Again who is this speedy BoB?) Jesus John rode the bike with me and kept telling me there was a team behind me about to catch up. I think he was lying, but it totally helped me keep the pace. P-Funk followed my run, then the same rotation again, the Redhead and then our fearless Captain Nut. It was almost light out at this point since we ran through most of the night. Our final exchange had us resting a little before sunrise. To say we were punchy at this point would be an understatement. For example, I think we were figuring out how to spell out farting sounds. Half Nut Girl 1: “How you spell out poop noises?”
Half Nut Girl 2: “I think there’s a V.”
Part III and conclusion (I PROMISE!) tomorrow.
hehe seriously so fun…bringing back so many good memories
Oh, ouch. Looking at your neck in that position is making mine hurt! Ha!
So I just finished posting my Leg 2 recap and my iGoogle pops up yours!!! LMAO! I've decided that Leg 2 was all about the poo! LOL! I hope the lady parts are feeling better! 😉
Looks like such a fun time! And way to go on those speedy runs – impressive!
Um, yeah. #2 recap deals with poo. Pretty hilarious! Well, I guess you are talking about multiple runs… heehee
That is some talented sleeping is all I have to say! And talented running too. It's so great to read these posts – they make me smile just reading about how goofy you guys are. Running is fun! Way to spread the word 🙂
Eek, I can never sleep in a car, I'm so jealous! Sounds like you had a FUN time!!
looks pretty crazy! Sounds like you had fun!
hmm, not sure i could ever sleep like that but good on you! LOL Too funny about the bike, still sounds like a total blast!
I think there's a "V" … haha, I just about died at that last bit …
I sleep like that all the time here at work when it gets super quiet in the middle of the night, I make an office chair my own personal Hell and for some reason, I never learn my lesson.
The only negative from a speedy run is now that you've shown your hand, everyone is going to ask about speedy B.O.B. in all your future races!
Fun times, fun times. Thanks for the recap. Onto Part III
how on earth can you sleep like that?!?!
Wow. Those "RAYGUN" events sound "fun" and that's some mighty fine pooping you got going on – lol
Oh, the "V" is silent. That confuses everyone.
All the best,
I have to say, I am a lot like you…I can sleep ANYWHERE! Sorry to hear about the lady bits, that is just plain awful!
Can't wait for the conclusion and your time! 🙂
I am having so much fun reading this! I'd love to do something like this one day.
Congrats on another strong leg!
This is awesome! I'm on your (and Red's) team next year!! 🙂
LMAO I'm coming down next year for this. And you my dear win for sleeping in any position. Although I used to sleep on people's floors in college drove people crazy I'd just fall asleep wherever I was! And bikes do have that tendency mine are hurting after an ill fated spin class yesterday.
And do NOT mess with me when I need sleep. LOL I might give P Funk a run for her money!
Alright– I sooo have to do this next year!! Sounds like a blast!
My God girl– how is your neck?? That sleeping position is amazing!!!
I just love a good pretend poop pic. You are hysterical lady.
omgosh i want to do a relay soooo bad!!! looks like you guys had a BLAST!!
P-Funk viewed the Twilight Zone scene again.
P-Funk falling out laughing.
P-Funk doesn't like lights on when sleeping.
P-Funk still cuter than airplane monster.
Not to mention, P-Funk had the a FAB time with Half Nuts and the amazing B.o.B. aka She Who Sleeps in Any Position. Nothing compares to this race!!!!
wow that looks like one uncomfortable sleeping position! i'm thoroughly enjoying the recap even though i'm now like a month late on reading (sorry). how come you got hooked up with a sleeping bag while no one else did? hmmmm 😉
