On Sunday, Daft Daddy and his trusty sidekick Mexican Al raced in the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Cinco de Mayo run/walk held in the City of Irvine with our friends over at Tiny Oranges. It was a great time for a great cause, and a big thank you goes out to Jennifer Scheumann for putting Team Tiny Oranges together and raising a lot of money for Pediatric Cancer Research.
The one thing I learned on Sunday is that I’m in horrific shape. I pulled a calf muscle at the 2 mile marker, causing me to limp across the finish line looking like Kurt Gibson. I’m in such bad shape I couldn’t even donate my body to science fiction. Some runners actually thought running around me was part of the course. However I have to admit, my favorite part of the day was when my running partner Mexican Al discovered the event was for Pediatric Cancer – not Pancreatic Cancer. I think he had mixed emotions, as he’s a huge Patrick Swayze fan. Which would explain why he has a tattoo of Johnny Castle on his chest with the phrase, “Nobody puts baby in a corner” below it. But either way it was a great day, and I think it’s safe to say, we had the time of our lives.
