The Breath Of The Beast

"There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it." - Alfred Hitchcock

I feel the hot, heavy breath of the beast on the back of my neck.

Every day that passes brings me a day closer to our meeting.  But I am not afraid (well maybe just a little).  I am human and I have strength and I have faith and I have courage.

And most important of all, I have nut job friends to help me through when the insanity level rises over my head.

The Beast is insatiable.  He will swallow you whole if you let Him.

He is hungry and he is mean.  He makes his appearance twice each year.  In February and in August.  The coldest and hottest days of the year.  Coincidence?  I don't think so.

My allies conquered him in the cold.  Now the heat is coming and I will join my noble running adventurers (total nut jobs) and show the beast what we are made of.

Who will survive?  Who will crumble?  Those questions will be answered August 21st.

All I ask is that there be a cold beer waiting at the end of the journey.

  1. The Cannibal and I will get you through the Beast. But just by chance if you don't make it can we have your share of the beer?

  2. I'm sure there will be more than enough room in my casket for the beer.
