RUGGED MANIACS AND . . . BRASIL!

To those of you among my Gentle Readers who may have read my post about Timmer in Rio last week, I offer a couple of other intrepid souls from his family.


They are his youngest daughter, Brigid, and his wife Jeanne, known hither and yon as the legendary Beaner.

They are sporting THEIR medals after competing in Denver's version of the Olympics: The Rugged Maniac.

You can Google it, as I did, and learn that it is a race and obstacle course that involves a lot of mud.

Jeanne has long been a runner, competing in races in the Denver area, and it appears Brigid is following in her footsteps.

By the way, don't you think they look like sisters in the above picture?

Well, just to make sure you don't forget about the Olympics, here is a fantastic piece by Pink Martini, featuring the singer Storm Large.

It's "Brasil"!

  1. It's only "Brasil" if you speak Portuguese or live in New Bedford, MA. Or Brazil. Or if you're Tom Brady.

  2. Pink Martini is one of the best Portland bands ever. Ah, you be young and in shape again, eh?I
    I once ran a 36 minute 10K, now it takes me that long to get up and get a cup of coffee.

    Cheers

    1. Couldn't agree more. And while I never ran ANY 10K I'm in about the same shape as you nowadays.

  3. They DO look like sisters. And they're hardly even muddy.
