And I am so psyched!
For those of you asking “What the heck is the Blerch??” you must read The Oatmeal (Matthew Inman)’s web comic about running:
I love this comic, and jumped at the chance to buy a Blerch shirt from The Oatmeal when it was offered:
And now, I get to run 6.2 miles in scenic Washington state, while being chased by giant blerches, and where the aid stations will feature cake and Nutella and sugary grape beverages instead of just water. Yes!
Neither Drew nor I have ever been to the Pacific Northwest, and this race coincides quite nicely with our anniversary, so we’re going to turn the silliest race ever into a fab mini-vacation, and I can’t wait.
Hey Blerch, I’m coming for you!
