Damn, from the title I was looking for something about the Jena 6.
But this is just as controversial Did he really finish? He looks awfully fresh compared to that guy in the red

You people are impossible! Nah iPods are banned at these races. I put my hair in a ponytail.

I was pretty fresh because I stopped a lot along the way. Had a beer shot at mile 24 or so, and stopped to listen to some of the bands. For example, at mile 17 Copasetic was awesome! They have a killer guitar player with killer chops and a really tight guitar/bass combination.

I can't beleive people actualy run that far! I'd run for a few hundred yards to my car, drive to the finish get out and cross the line.


Go Kuan!

See, now race pics can be taken three ways, at least.

1. auto racing

2. marathon

3. racial

and that is the order that came to my mind.

Well done Kuan! At mile one the medics would pronounce me dead at the scene. I had a friend who ran marathons and I know the training is very tough too.

Congrats for finishing!
