Larry Gibbons! He is now the proud owner of a ticket to the inaugural Blue Ridge Marathon!
His answer to the question, "what was your worst pre-race meal?" was:
"A Power Bar. It was a disgusting chewy mess. Every bite took a minute to swallow, and then it sat in my stomach like lead."
Well that's just swell, Larry. I was so close to signing a multi-million dollar sponsorship deal with the Power Bar corporation. Now I have to continue looking for a real job.
As if that wasn't enough, it turns out Larry is one of like, two or three other barefooters in NC. He's probably faster than me, too.
I am a man of integrity. I will honor the selection made by The True Random Number Generator, even though it costs me MILLIONS of dolllars AND I won't be able to hog all the barefoot attention at the marathon.
So now I live for one reason and one reason only: beat Larry Gibbons. It's on, Larry. Bring it.
And congrats again.
ADDENDUM: How rude of me - I neglected to say thanks to all who entered. So, thanks to all who entered!
The bare foot is the best running coach money can't buy.
