While in line for beer, I got a call from my friend Tim who was watching Yomarie.

On my way up to see the Hawkeye gang and Tim, I ran into a guy who had passed me during the race. He had HAVE tattooed on his left calf and FUN tattooed on his right calf. I told him I saw him during the race (when he passed me) and that I liked his tatts. He told me they were a gift to himself for his 40th birthday. (Love me some tatts). Anyway the rest of the morning was spent hanging out with The Hawkeye gang, Angie, Josh, and Tereasa. We met several other Tweeples including @runbangrun and @RasberiRunner.

I also ran into Greg, who I ran with at the Haunted Hustle. He and his wife both ran. He was running Boston and was right there when the second bomb went off. Although we have corresponded since then, I hadn't seen him and it was so great to see him!

So the day was truly wonderful. I was able to head home and enjoy a homebrew with Jason, dinner with the family and relax.
Because this post isn't long enough I must include 2 more things...
I didn't know they did a separate M2 Challenge (combined race times of the Rock N Sole and Madison Mini) until I saw someone else post about it. Guess what? 1st place in my age division?! Bam!
My friend Julie, who I posted about the Brewer game, was having a blogger friend from Chicago come to The Compound after the Madison Mini. Her husband had ran the race. I FB her how did he do, his time was 15 seconds faster than mine. I said, wow we probably ran near each other at some point...Her response...Well he has HAVE FUN tattooed on the back of legs for everyone running behind him to enjoy...small freakin world!
