Oh! Hell Yes! It’s almost time for El Scorcho Cuatro!
A little taste of last years party-
What is El Scorcho you ask? Well its a small intimate affair, very civilized you know, of about 500 runners. Who against their better judgment and sound medical advice. Celebrate their freedom to to run around a 3.1 mile loop in Trinity park in the heat of July beginning at midnight for many many hours.
Full disclosure- I’ve ran this beast the last 3 years. And to Race Organizer Ryan Valdez’s credit he’s never closed the finish line before my slow butt got across.
Due to last months Mexico adventure the 50k is out for me. But I’m a sponsor and I’m going to do the Tango with La Scorchita. She’s my girl this year.
I’ll be running. God help me. Am I good runner you ask? No way! I started running 5 years ago. After an emergency appendectomy kept me out of the weight room for 5 months. I realized I was really really bad at running. Tracy said watching me run was like a seeing a car accident in slow motion. It was so awful, she wanted to look away but couldn’t!
Why do I do it if I’m not good at it? Because I’m not good at it! That’s why i do it! If I just stick with what I’m good at. I won’t be doing much of anything. Ever. And neither will you.
Lori Roth the client you see in my Afterburn videos will be running. She’s normal, the more she trains the smoother/better she runs. She lapped me mercilessly last year. How many times? I don’t know I was hallucinating after the first 3 hours. I asked her. She told me she lost count. I think she was trying to spare my feelings.
I’m calling every one of you runners out. You can’t hide. I see you! It’s go time!
So anyway there are less than 50 spots left to this best event of the summer! You need to go here for complete info. and to reserve your spot. –
I hope you see this as the challenge/party it is. We always have a good time and Ryan, Jason and the Fort Worth Running Company have donated over $10,000 to charity so far. Get your head together and take me up on this.
Talk to you later.
Dedicated to Your Success,
