Leg pain vs. brain pain

I’m not sure what hurts most after Sunday’s World Championship Pack-Burro Race — my legs or my brain?


After 29 miles of trading places up and down 13,197-foot Mosquito Pass, through rockfields, creeks, spongy-wet tundra, rain, light hail, etc., the race ended in a hurky-jerky march down Fairplay’s Front Street, with Bobby Lewis of Buena Vista and Wellstone crossing the finish line just two seconds ahead of myself and Laredo. We both ran about 14 minutes faster than last year’s time, which I suppose says something for aging athletes like myself, 49, and Bobby, 45.
