Arm check

I forgot to tell you the best part of working gear check at the Louisiana Marathon.

Someone checked his arm.

As he walked up I stifled the urge to ask, "Can I give you a hand with that?", but I did permit myself to tell him he didn't need to put his number on it. "Pretty sure we'll know it's yours," I joked. And then when he picked up I quipped, "I'm going to go out on a limb and say this one's yours".

Pretty awesome to race with one arm, right?


  1. Ha - that's one of the most awesome things ever! Guess he didn't need any elbow-grease to finish that race.

  2. And here I am, feeling like a bad ass for running with a broken hand. I guess I should stop my whining!

  3. Haha! Sounds like he took it in good stride. Very awesome on his part with his running abilities!

  4. Wow, that's impressive, I'd like to see him in action and learn about his balance.
