June 3 Mr. Hughes WE JUST GOT BACK FROM NEW YORK. CANíT
WAIT TO SEE YOU AND BEAT YOU. GOT TO GO AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT.
June 3 The Saint Keep eating. It will help me, I mean you, with the race.
What's your cell number?
June 3 Mr. Hughes THIS IS TOP SECRET (SECRET PHONE NUMBER (xxx) xxx-xxxx) I
THINK THAT'S IT DON'T FRET I AM GOING TO KISSNERS WHERE I CAN GORGE MYSELF,
AND TELL MYSELF I AM ADDING MUSCLE TO BEAT YOU
June 4 Mr. Hughes OVERSLEPT. RICHIE MISSED FIELD TRIP. THIS IS THE LATEST I
EVER SLEPT, 7-30. I RAN A LONG LONG WAY YESTERDAY, WELL I MEAN TROT, SEE YOU
LATER SLOW MAN
June 4 The Saint I am getting slower every day. I may get a leash this year
and let you pull me along so that I can keep up. My hope will be since the
race starts up at around 7:30 and you aren't getting up until 7:30 that you
will not wake up on time and I will win by default. Just thinking. Don't set
your alarm and I will wake you up so that you can get to the race on time.
The race is taking a different route this year. Instead of starting at the
Holiday Inn, we will be starting at the capital. I will have some of my
friends show up along the race route to help show you the way to go at each
of the major turns. This should be real helpful.
June 5 Mr. Hughes AS AN OZARK MAN I AM GREATLY ENCOURAGED BY YOUR SLOWNESS.
CONTINUE YOUR DETERIORATION. I WISH I COULD ADVISE YOU ON HOW TO ACCELERATE
IT. BUT EVEN THOUGH I AM TRYING TO INCREASE MY CAPACITIES, I SEEM TO BE
GOING THE REVERSE WAY. EVEN THOUGH I MAY WAKE AT 7:30 I WILL STILL SWEEP
RIGHT PAST YOU. GET A GOOD STRONG LEASH. IF YOU HAVE TIME READ OHIO NEWS
June 5 The Saint Rick, I am almost ready to concede. But let's just run the
race to make sure. Speed kills not words Do you want me to keep your shoes
the night before the race to make sure that some devious spirit doesn't put
a pebble in your shoes or sever your shoe laces so that they come apart half
way through the race? I am trying to think of every possible way that I can
to help with your performance this year. I was just thinking how nice a good
hearty meal would taste now.
June 5 Mr. Hughes MAN, YOU ARE SO SHARP. OF COURSE KEEP MY SHOES, MAKE SURE
THE LACES WORK AND BE CERTAIN THAT I GET A HUGE MEAL TO KEEP UP MY STRENGTH.
UH, DONíT FORGET TO REMIND ME THE RACE STARTS AT 10íOCLOCK THIS YEAR. AND
THE LOCATION IS MONTGOMERY. NOW IF THERE IS ANYTHING I OMITTED, I KNOW YOU
WILL TAKE CARE OF IT. GOOD LUCK.
June 8, 2009 The Saint Someone sent me an article of the emails we have been
sharing about the race. Can you believe the nerve? This year letís follow
the advice of that well know Alderson sports philosopher, Roger Bowyer, and
donít out kick our coverage at the race.
June 9,2009 Mr. Hughes ALL THAT IS JUST GREAT, BUT DON'T DISTRACT ME FROM MY
MISSION, GOT TO GO EAT , I MIGHT ,I SAID MIGHT GO TO BUDS , I DOUBT IT. GIVE
ME MORE INFO. BEST OF FAVOR. HEY, REMIND MARY ELIZABETH FATHERS DAY IS
COMING .NOT TO SPEND TOO LAVISHLY. ALL I WANT IS A CAR. THAT GRILL WAS NICE.
BUT I NEVER NEVER USE IT. I MAY CALL YOU. SEE YOU. DO NOT FORGET, I AM A
DOMINANT OVERPOWERING RUNNER.
