I’ve been tweeting more than blogging for awhile, it’s just too accessible and accommodates mild ADHD better. ;-) The Zumbro 100 mile event was the first time I have actually tweeted during a race, so I thought it would be fun to record the Twitter activity for posterity.
These will read in reverse (newest to oldest), because that’s how Twitter displays them and I’m not bothering to invert them.

dlrustvold Run @runlikemonkey! Have fun on your hundred miles. What kind of footwear?
6:07 PM Apr 7th via Tweetie in reply to runlikemonkey
kettlefans @runlikemonkey I think the only way “tweets” will work down there is if you take your phone in your pack so it can go up on the ridges.
7:26 AM Apr 2nd via web in reply to runlikemonkey
crazyrunnerguy @runlikemonkey Good decision. You won’t regret it.
