In 2002, the Horsemen were hit with a severe case of vaginitus. Everyone had escaped, er, been stationed elsewhere. I had tried in vain to contact the Horsemen via email and was under the gun to get my application for the Big Sur Marathon since I was stationed in Monterey and, you know, that's the thing to do if you run marathons around the Central Coast of California. So I signed up and lo and behold, the Horsemen came calling. Well, at least Major Bash did and wanted to run the Wild Wild West for the third year together.

I then questioned the manhood of the remaining Horsemen, trying to goad them by indicating I would be willing to run BOTH marathons (a week apart) to show solidarity in the Horsemen conglomerate. Imagine my dismay when they bowed out due to school and work commitments (like those are REALLY important in the big scheme of things!!!) and then I was on the hook to run both the marathons. But being the less-than-brilliant animal that I am, I beat my chest, grunted a few unintelligible words and exclaimed that I was up to the task. So a-trainin' I then went.
