So I am just a weeeeeee bit fired up for Halloween this year because I will be here to celebrate Halloween AND its on a Friday AND getting spooky w/the dogs!!! The video above is time lapsed by the GoPro, music from the String Cheese Incident, & posted in HD mode. Feel free to click full screen and turn it up and wait for the apparitions to melt down into view.
Lets start with that one: Last Man Standing ( L.M.S. ) is a bet during the NFL season. I posted about not participating in Fantasy Football this year and my brother talked me into L.M.S. and this year they gave everyone three losses because they only made it to week 6 last year w/two losses. Basically, you pick ONE NFL team each week to win BUT you can only pick that team once. MEANING, you pick 17 different teams throughout the season and you can only suffer three strikes. Week One, I picked the damn Bears and they lost, I was running the Lead King 25K during week two, told my brother that I pick whoever plays Chi-Town, that game was in SF to play the 9ers, promptly chalked up my second strike, been picking winners ever since. This past weekend knocked two people out because of their third loss. I think we are now down to 12 people and everyone has at least one loss.

And Now For My Personal Big News: Me Me Me Time!!! Look At Me!! Me Me MEEEeeeeeee.
I found my next event! This August, I will be running a marathon!?!? Me, running a marathon?!?!? Its hard to believe that I just wrote that. Let me write that again, I will be running a marathon August 2015. WoW, That Is Awesome!! That Felt Gr8!!
Setting | Silverton, Colorado is nestled in the midst of the Silverton caldera at an elevation of 9,318 feet above sea level. The mountains only go up from there, climbing an additional 4,000 feet directly around town. The area has been heavily mined since the 1880′s, leaving behind a rich history of ghost towns, mining structures and wild stores. Course Summary
Follows Alpine Loop mining road counter-clockwise linking historic mining ghost towns, Howardsville, Eureka, Animas Forks & Gladstone. High point is 12,930 ft atop California Pass. Low point is Silverton at 9,318ft. Total vertical gain is 3,800 for the marathon and 4,400 for the 50k. The 50K runners will complete an out and back to Niagara Gulch before joining the Marathon course.

I did a copy/paste from their website regarding the Course Summary and Setting. The photo to the right, I captured this one last winter, sleepy little Mt town of Silverton. Something else that excites me about this event is that the marathon race starts before the 50K runners. I totally dig cheering on other races and will have plenty of chances to see the studs fly on by me at sub 9 min mile paces as I stumble along at 12min mile pace, if I am lucky?!?!!?
2015 is going to be AWESOME!!
