Are you a warmonger or do you support peace, 5k
POSTED: 10/18/10 2:53 PM

So my friend, who works for Sister Cities International, has a solid argument for why I had to sign up for the 5k they are hosting this Saturday in Foggy bottom:

"if you don't do it means you don't support world peace, and you don't want to be known as a warmonger, do you?"

So out of fear of being called a warmonger, I've signed up. Anyone else doing it or interested in doing it? Sounds like a fun int'l themed party afterwards too.

Thanks for the info starcaro. I'm in, but have to do it as a training/warmup run for the ATM. Anyone else wants to hang out at the back of the pack? Maybe brunch after?

You have got to be kidding me?

Brent - If that was in reference to my post regarding warmongering, YES, that was only a joke.

The main point is there is a 5k on Saturday in Foggy Bottom I am gonna do and wanted to see if anyone else was interested.

Alejandro - see you there! Sadly, I'll have to bow out of brunch though because I already have plans.

Not sure I get the point. But no, I'm not kidding. I always run an easy 5k the day before my 10 milers.

LOL

i thought the original poster's comment was funny as was brent's sarcastic reaction that was feigning [sic] offense/disbelief when there really was none on his part in order to see what people would say to his post.

both were extremely funny and witty in their own way.

I am a warmonger and will boycott this race on principle.
