    I took it that the "return to start" was a completion of the challenge, or Dado wouldn't have came back. Failure of the challenge would have ended like this:
    ...when I returned to the Start I decapitated all witnesses to my failure.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Get yourself some tea tree oil (melaleuca), it should help with the skin damage. I used it during my 2nd degree burn last month and it really helped on so many levels.

    i finished it in 8:27

    one of the first things i thought of was the primal laws, the one about avoiding trauma, and it sunk deep into my heart.

    you never appreciate the little things so much than when they are taken away from you. the day after accident i wanted nothing more than to be able to take a slow walk over some grass, barefoot.

    Well I hope you at least did lots of Primal grunting and chest thumping!

    Awe... did you get a lil owie' on your wittle foot? You need to man the fuck up, tape that bitch up and commence with tabata sprints ASAP!

    In all my years of drinking I was lucky to avoid major trauma. There were some very close calls though. Good times.

    Get well...

    A small quibble from an ex-cardio junkie...
    Anything slower than a 7 minute mile is jogging (not running). A nine minute mile is a full on plod.

    That said, yesterday while jogging in the park in my stinky Vibrams, I was passed by a very large person. That never woulda happened before, but now I don't care. I'm there to look at trees and move around without hurting myself.

    I've done the drunken run home from the pub several times. The best was during the winter. Between the booze and being wofully underdressed for -32C (uh...-25 F), it's amazing how fast you can run. The Downside: I was damned near sober by the time I got home.

    Makes me want to avoid public pools forever!
    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.
