Did it, done it and want to do it again!

I woke up this morning to hear Maggie and Doug encouraging everyone to sign up for "Race to Robie".

Boy, did that bring back memories.

I did it one year, yes I did Robie!

Okay, I only walked it, but it was tough.

Billed as the "toughest race in the Northwest", if you're lucky enough to be part of it you will come away exhausted.

You might lose a few things too!

Your toenails will take a beating as your feet pound against your shoes on the descent from Aldape Summit. It took about two weeks, but I eventually lost several toe nails. No problem, they grew back. 

And, you might lose some clothing. It's easy to shed that favorite sweatshirt as your body heats up  while trekking straight up the mountain. My advice, wear something old.

And guess what, you'll likely lose weight. No worries, they have great beer and more at the finish line. You'll need it.

So, here's a "cheer" to all of you who got your race number during registration today. Yes, Robie sold out in 21 minutes this year! Have a great time and I hope you enjoy losing a few things in "The Race to Robie" this year.
