The Kids Are All Right


Despite his unholy amalgamation of Andreas Raelert's and Bret Michaels' fashion senses, Patrick "The Road" (The Who?) Mahoney has come a long way. In a brief span of time, he has shed pounds, spent copious amounts of money on triathlon gear, and become the man his mom always knew he could become. But I knew him when. Once upon a time, before we became legends in our own minds, Patrick and I collaborated on several posts. Head over to Endurance Gear Reviews to see what we thought of Shamrock Farms Rockin’ Refuel™ Chocolate Recovery Drink. The ultimate in he said/he said.


If you haven't visited recently, Beth of Shut Up And Run (SEWER), is passing out Boston Marathon entries in a manner similar to the way she passes gas. That's right, Boston Marathon entries. There are two available, and all you need to do is leave a comment explaining why you should get an entry to this prestigious race. However, I urge you to put your selfishness aside and help a fellow runner out. A man who need an no introduction, to me it would be a travesty if Chris K of The Manly Man With Runs did not receive one of these entries. So head over to the Boston Marathon Entry Giveaway and leave a message urging Beth and her panel of experts to reserve an entry for Chris. Don't we deserve more amusement at his expense? Can you imagine the posts? Hahahahaha! After BQing recently, this would be a fitting end to his story.

  5. So glad to see that you are truly a man of character...first putting aside differences and now pulling for Chris to get one of those slots.

    Laughing my ass off at the commentary on Patrick's fashion sense!

  7. I agree, this would be a great story to watch unfold...Does Chris even want the Boston entry? I didn't see his comment on there...off to check it out. Love reading your blog Kovas. Always makes me smile.

  8. Look this has gone too far with Patrick. I for one know he spent several hours in front of the mirror, trying on no less than 2 dozen coordinating outfits just to get the right look. And what happens ? Mass histaria because he couldn't match them damn blue Newtons with one outfit!! Crap, I told him to go with the Reebok high tops, but noooooooooo he wanted to run fast. Well, whatever. I'm done.
    PLEASE GIVE CHRIS "I RAN MY FREAKING ARSE OFF " K.
    The
    Entry
    To
    Boston !!

  16. I'm still waiting for the 3 of you to show me up with your Burpees! 5 days left, I want to see some serious Kovas, Chris & Patrick Burpee footage.

  17. and for the record, I blame you three on my crankiness: YOU won a Matty, Run, Run sticker AGAIN, by cheating, and I didn't; ChrisK neglected to include my Blog title in his Post of the Year, and Patrick doesn't even follow me :/

    Janitors deserve to feel beautiful too.
