Corporately Challenged

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Yesterday was the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge in Rochester over on RIT's campus. I'm still not sure what possessed me to sign up, but aside from that 3.5 mile running thing, it was pretty fun. Harley had a tent in the "bowl" and was cooking burgers and dogs after the race.

Check out Al Simone's face as they blew the starting horns! HAHAHA, Priceless...

I can't believe how many people were at this event: 10,397. We (Rachelle and I (she signed up for her School's team)) were so far back at the start that it took us about 6 minutes just to pass the starting line! And even though we walked just about the entire thing there were still thousands of people behind us.

We parked over at Marketplace Mall and took a shuttle over to RIT. It was great getting there; we just walked up and got right on the bus. On the way back it was crazy. We waited in line for about an hour, not because it wasn't moving but because of the length of the line. There was this woman in front of us who just had to complain about everything; I hate those people. Maybe she was drunk, but she didn't look it, just sounded like it. Then after waiting all that time two buses showed up at the same time and people in the line behind us just broke out and ran to the other bus! We were all like WTF, great way to start a riot! I was fully prepared to throw some shit down if one of those line jumpers took our spots on a bus, luckily we found spots (seats even!) on the bus and got back to the car without incident.

We're having Fat Bob's cater our tent next Thursday for Buffalo's Corporate Challenge. Some people have pretty insane catering set ups (Tops and Wegmans). I just think it's funny that we are participating in a healthy event and then eating greasy bbq food and beer.

oh yeah.

last year when i did the corporate challenge i was just coming up on the 1/4 mile mark and there was a guy already at the 1/4 mile mark before the finish line. I think he finished in like 18 minutes.

Yeah, our tent was "catered" by Harley's food service. This means we cooked our own burgers and dogs. I heard Tim (headmaster) say he's thinking about having Dinosaur BBQ do it next year.

I can't believe some people can actually run that fast. One of the guys on Rachelle's school team came in third place this year at 17 minutes and change. He won it in previous years...
