This morning on radio, Stu was explaining how he “allegedly” hurt his back on a trampoline a few days ago when Pat brought up that Warrior Dash is this weekend – the weekend Stu hoped and prayed would never come. Convenient timing...
Warrior Dash is a 3.2 mile race with 14 grueling obstacles that different Mercury employees have agreed to run to help raise money for Restoring Love. Stu, along with the other Mercury employees have been placed in to teams of two, one boy and one girl, for the race. Raj, who is also running the race, somehow managed to get paired up with Miss America 2008, Kirsten Haglund. Stu wasn’t exactly pleased about this…
“Yeah, she’s the partner of Raj… who is in shape. It’s… like… isn’t that a little unfair?” Stu said.
Glenn and Pat, who don’t exactly have confidence in Stu’s chances on winning, not losing, or really even finishing the race, didn’t have much sympathy for him.
“Now all of the sudden he's got back issues,” Pat said. Have you noticed that? He's never a back problem in his life. ‘Oh, my back hurts. I hurt my back on the -- you hurt your back on the trampoline?’ You hurt your back on a trampoline? How did that happen?”
“Yeah, my wife had me do this trampoline for exercise and this is just another example of how exercise kills…” Stu responded.
“That’s too bad,” Glenn unsympathetically told Stu. “It's 14 grueling obstacles. The Warrior Dash is a 3.2 mile race. Why would you have gotten involved in this in the first place?”
“I care about America, Glenn,” Stu responded.
So far Warrior Dash has raised $275,000 has been raised. Glenn explained to the audience. “We have a goal of $500,000 that we have to hit. For each $100,000 raised, the losing team will be subject to -- some people say it's a form of torture. Pat and I say it's a source of entertainment.”
“I mean, please, wouldn't you like to have Stu eat, like, a spoonful of cinnamon?” Pat added.
Pat also suggested that interning for Jeffy would be a good punishment.
If you want to see the losing team get punished, or as Glenn put it, "see Stu suffer and get beat by Miss America," donate to MercuryOne.org TODAY! All donations that are made today and tomorrow, up to $50,000, will be matched by a couple who have asked to remain anonymous.
Here's what some of Mercury One's participants are doing to prepare for Warrior Dash...
