I noticed the Cinciditarod (Cincinnati's Urban Iditarod) promoted on a local blog and thought I would do it with some of the kids I'm mentoring in a community service project. Problem. Have to be 21 and older.
Tried recruiting some colleagues from the building in which I teach. Nope. Stuff going on.
And with about 2 hours left to register I ran out of options when my wing man said, 'sounds kind of goofy' implying he was probably not in.
Next year, I'm in that race. I may even swing by this year to check it out to prepare myself for a victory next year.
