Toughest Dip in the Drink

How did I make out in my Lazarus-Saturday swim up Mill Mountain and around Ro’noke? I did okay.

Generally, I oppose full-immersion baptisms. But when the good Lord does it to you over the course of a 13-mile run, I’m into it.

The Blue Ridge Marathon provides the BEST runner experience. What do they hand you at the finish line for a replenisher? Yes. —>

Once I dry off, I will tally the donations and let you know how much we raised for ProLife Across America.

..Now, bring on April and May Madness!

  1. Does “okay” mean you manged to finish in under two hours despite uphill slogging?

    Congrats!!!!!

  2. Thanks for asking, Mary Ann. When I crossed the finish line, the clock read 1:53. That would have put me in at 56th place (out of 368). I don’t think my chip was working, because my name doesn’t appear on the official finishers’ list. Because I am old, I grew up on the the lace-into-your-shoes chips. Now they have new-fangled disposable adhesive chips. Anyway, I ran my butt off and “left it all on the course,” as they say–and was left with plenty of Palm Sunday pain to offer to our blessed Lord.

  3. All I can say is that is truly impressive!! Thirteen 8.5 minute mountainous miles while being pelted with pouring rain — amazing!
