did the big titty loop in a slushy cold wet snowy midmorning run.  slow and slippery at almost 9 minute mile avg, total 1:20:30ish.  Easy breathing run with frozen butt cheeks.  It's interesting that I enjoy these long runs so much.  It's either a reflection on the general dissatisfaction I have with the boringitude in my general life or it actually does something mentalphysically to me that is somewhat of a high, or it is purely the desire to cause pain to myself or...  the other interesting thing is that I feel that I should somehow be congratulated when I finish one, but part of me knows that by in large there are few who appreciate the mental stuffing this takes to do when limited by the inherent wussitudes of life imprinted in my DNA.

I am curious of the name of the run?? Congrats on the finish, and here comes Arizona for the Froerer Bros

Chad, this is a very popular loop as you can imagine. Not sure the origins of the name, but it is one that is only limited by your imagination
