In an effort to post a thought about as the Animal updates his blog, i figure an update is due.

first things first; sorry to not have an update following the 20 mile midnite run. It's been so long and i figure LISA's site covered it and moved to the CRIM and beyond, but a quick little 3:04 am snippet from the night....




...with a little song thrown in....



But since i have been not really updating and am using videos to take up space to avoid typing any real thoughts...let me say i loved my 10th annual 30th birthday party....next years midnite run will be a 40 miler in anticipation of the big 11th 30th party.....funny math for the Germans also know as Kim and Uwe who brought me my favorite beer as a gift....and i'm drinking one now...yep it's....




oooh the alcohol abuse.....but why WARSTEINER?????


three magical little words GERMAN PURITY LAWS


See the germans made it a law that only four things can go into beer around 400 years ago....oddly enough one of the things that can go into the making of beer is.....


wait for it....


...water. oh my god....what can the other three things be....


barley....malt...hop extract....


isn't that truly amazing????? look on the bottle for ingredients and that's what appears.


Cause life is too short to drink cheap beer. thanks guys


The party had beer from canada and germany, and vodka from the ukraine much fun was had by all....so.....


LET'S PLAY MEXICO


Moving on to a little snippet from late in the evening



video

long distance on the phone with Zack in Utah....


must have been the vodka


thank goodness Kim was there to open the vodka bottle as i had trouble....


open the european style bottle....

again good thing Uwe was distracted


video

a good time was had by all. How am i going to do this again next year after running 40 miles to commemerate the event. And who is going to join me for this one????

Maybe we can get shirts.....like.....STEERS RUNNING TEAM shirts. Something like a running with the bulls but more of a running with the steers. With individual names so marathon cheerers can root for us. Maybe even a "bib-goes-here" spot for bib....duh.

...and of course the official steers "rock on" wave to other runners gesture...wait for it...it's only another minute long....



you mess with the steers and you'll get the horns....

thanks for reading/watching....whatever

das-be-danya....i can barely spell english...how did you think i would spell this???

video

later.....

OMG...that was the most entertaining post in a long time.

Count me in for the 40 miles. Mark it down and hold me to it. It will commemorate my 40th birthday as well.

Can I be in the Steers Running Club?

First things first...how did you come up with the name Steers?

Oh Lukie,

Great post! Some of that sounded strangely familiar. I guess you got my email :-)

If I end up in Michigan on your birthday, i will join you for 10-20 miles of your birthday run, or maybe I will crew for you.

I few days ago I heard a song that would be great for your IPod, it goes something like this:

Any way you want it
Thats the way you need it
Any way you want it

She loves to laugh
She loves to sing
She does everything
She loves to move
She loves to grove
She loves the lovin things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh, baby, hold tight

Oh, she said,
Any way you want it
Thats the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, any way you want it
Thats the way you need it
Any way you want it

I was alone
I never knew
What good love could do
Ooh, then we touched
Then we sang
About the lovin things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh baby, hold tight

Oh, she said,
Any way you want it
Thats the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, any way you want it
Thats the way you need it
Any way you want it

That's all for now.

Go Steers!

For the uninitiated, you must post the orgin of the Steers so others have some perspective. I've been mulling over some shirt ideas and looking around for some technical tees to work with. Do I see worldwide distribution of Steers running apparel and a Runner's World spread in the future?

I certainly hope so!! I just hope I can become a member of the Steers Running Club.

So exclusive.

And, for a 40-mile run, I like the idea of a 'crew'.
