2 weekends, 2 Holdidays, 2 Costumes

The last 2 weekends I have been down in Carlsbad. I am sure those of you who read this blog (Thanks Mom) are shocked! The first trip southward was propelled by a desire to celebrate the close of the 2009 triathlon season and our Kona results, with those who I had spent SOO much time preparing for it all with. Well, as this is a festive crew, who was not going to miss the opportunity to celebrate in style (at least in the off season), a Beer Mile was chosen as the only appropriate event with which to commemorate the 2009 season. Unfortunately, soccer and pop Warner Football seasons conflicted with the beer mile scheduling, and all local tracks were in use. But this being a determined and resourceful group, a new course was mapped and measured. We had to use a local trail system that turned out to be just over a mile, but the 1st Annual X-Terra Beer Mile was set to go. Of course one cannot participate in a beer mile without donning the appropriate attire.

Good times were had by all. I took second to a seasoned veteran in my first attempt at the BM and was pretty happy with it. I have some plans up my sleeve for my next race... stay tuned.

This last weekend was yet another excuse to costume up and the Wernick Casa played host to a dinner party/rock band fiesta complete with some disgusting looking, but great tasting deserts!!
I flew in for the festivities.
You know its a party when ShamWow's Vince shows up!

Our Ends


  1. so beer mile is a holiday? That's now my favorite holiday.

  2. I need to move to Carlsbad. You guys are having so much fun.

  3. I'm still laughing at a couple of these pics.

  4. I'm almost as traumatized by the fact that you called the beer mile the BM as I was by your costume. Of course, it was way better than my completely lame costume so I should probably shut up.

  5. Dude, I hope you attached the mullet shot to that email before sending it off.
