Milwaukee WI -- Organizers of the Rock 'N Sole Half Marathon and 10K, criticized for the "lack of shade" during yesterday's race, have announced plans to place a giant tarp over the bridge's upper structure next year.
"It'll be kind of like those makeshift tents you played in when you were a kid," said a spokesman who asked not to be identified. "We'll cobble together something out of picnic blankets and stuff. A few clothespins here and there should keep it in place in case the wind picks up."
Some disgruntled runners were not satisifed by the proposed fix. "In New York City, they not only covered the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge for a race but also tarped the entire race course," said one runner, who reported that he completes "at least" three marathons a week.
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
