Beat the Bishop

Dane is training for a half marathon.
He wants others to feel his pain.
So yesterday from the pulpit
he announced a "Beat the Bishop 5K"
and those that did he would buy lunch.
So these are the real runners in our ward.
Perfect weather and
A short prayer
and "GO"
"Hey get back here"
Something tells me that this race might be fixed.
Can you tell who is out in front?
Well for a short while.
Up the hill, past the jr. High, circle around down Aronson, down Nutter and back to the church.

Unless you have heard of Rosie Ruiz.
You take the missionaries and a 1/2 mile short cut.

But he forgot about this real runner,
she smoked them all
Kara Zaccardi
she ran 7 minute miles
and caught the Bishop.
Needless to say this guy was buying lunch for them all.
