When I thought up this title it was because I thought the classic movie was called ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Leone” not ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre”. I thought about switching to ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Momo” but it really didn’t work so I’m sticking with my mistake because it’s thematic to my race report.
This weekend, as noted by others was an epic bloggerpalooza. I met some people for the first time and others I had met before either because they came and visited or because I met them at Wildflower and/ or IM WI. What was so remarkable about this, though is that it felt about as comfortable and familiar as getting together with old friends from high school. In some ways we seemed to have just about as much history with each other as you would if you had really known someone for years. It was very fun.
What was more remarkable was how fabulously well treated I was by my hostess, Momo. She and her husband Big J were the most gracious and warm hosts ever. Momo deserves some sort of really special award for the endless shuttle service she provided. The weekend went like this:
See what I mean? The woman is a SAINT! Love you, Momo.
Now I’m too tired to write the race report. But, as our govenator likes to say, “Ahl be baaaach” And yes, there are pics… they are coming. I just have to dig my camera out of wherever it is.
