I Am Apollo Creed

Dammit.

The first part of my edge-of-your-seat three part 2008 Boston Marathon restrospective begins tomorrow.

I am lobster red. Did you know the sun causes burning? Hmmm, live and learn.

Until tomorrow...

Dang...way to leave us hanging. Congrats on your finish! Bummer about your burn. The big, bright, ball of fire in the sky doooeeess tend to scald if you are left unprotected.

Glad to see you back from Beantown. I stalked you mercilessly on Monday. Great job on finishing a race that some of us will only dream of doing.

Can't wait for the report!

Ok, are you Rocky I Apollo or Rocky II Apollo...I'm guessing you are not Rocky IV Apollo since you did actually make a post. ;-)

Nitmos, next time put sunscreen on in the form of the Steers logo.

That would look so sweet!!

I have always heard "put on sunscreen even if it isn't sunny" but have never done it.

Welcome back!! I can't wait for the race report, but I will. I understand the need to take it all in before you can write a report.(took me 2 days) Congratulations on a great finishing time Nitmos!!! I'm sooo looking forward to your story.

Nitmos, I burned exactly half of my face watching for you (the left half, in case you're wondering). And all this to still not know... did you see my sign??

Aloe, my friend, aloe and moisturizer.

sRod said...

Can't wait to hear your story. I'd follow Laura's reco: {cold} aloe and moisturizer.

You know what helps sunburn? A steaming hot shower.

Great job in Boston, I'm looking forward to reading your 3 part adventure.

Dude!! I get all excited thinking there is going to be a race report . . .and I'm denied :P Glad you're back! Now get to this report, it's not like you have actual work to do :P

Laura said...

Are you still in Boston? There was a guy who looked like you at Equinox this morning. Or at least, he looked like your avatar.

Viper said...

Is this the Apollo Creed of Rocky or Apollo Creed of Rocky II?

Don't forget to exfoliate after the hot shower. You have to scrub that red off.

Congrats, lobstah. I, too, feel the burn. Who knew winter would end on Monday?

Do they even sell aloe in Michigan? Is there ever any sun there?
