It's official: I just sent in my entry for the Sawtooth 100. I was describing the course to a friend and mentioned that it's the only race where the mountains at the end are the easy part. That led to :
Him: There's no mountains in Minnesota.
Me: Trust me, there's mountains.
Him: I'm from Colorado.
Me: I'm so tired of hearing about the 55 14,000 foot peaks.
Me: No, they just built a new one outside Denver. What you guys never say is that you can drive to the base of the mountains and you're at 13-9. The peaks are only a hundred feet high. And half of them have escalators. I once climbed two of them by accident when I parked on the wrong end of a parking lot.
