Pirate Attack


In honor of the upcomming race for Avast, Redhead Running, the following post includes things likely to be said by pirates at the Gasparilla Marathon:

“I can’t believe Asics doesn’t make a peg-leg shoe!”

“If you pass me, my parrot is trained to gouge out your eyes.”

“I’m just following the dotted line until I find a gigantic X.”

“The booty is only 26.2 miles ahead!”

“Boston has a ‘Tea Party,’ we have rum! We win!”

“Publix…”

“I’m not slow, I’m just getting my sea legs back!”

“Pirate marathoners tend to have cramps and crabs.”

“I’m not running a marathon, I’m looking for my ship!”

“How many nautical miles are in a regular mile?”

LMAO! Avast my love, you crack me up! Does this mean we will be speaking pirate from here on out until race day? I can't friggin wait to see you next week!

Answer to that last one:

1 nautical mile = 1.15077945 mile

1 mile = 0.868976242 nautical mile

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. :)
