In 2014 I told Dan that I was going to Belize for the winter and he somehow found out that there was a marathon there. So he decided to bet our brother Greg on this race.....not who would win, but bet that they would both get together and go. If either bowed out of the trip then the other one would have to pick up the tab for the others WHOLE trip.
This trip was arrive on Saturday, run the race on Sunday, Leave Tuesday sort of trip. I had just gotten to Belize a few days ago. Below is a little footage of their race.
We rented a house for our stay. On the trip was Eric, Dan, Greg and their wives, Cara, Stephanie, and Katie. Steph's friends Lynn and Diana also came.
Dan engineered this photo. It took us several attempts to get it just right. If you don't see the humor look at the picture again.
After the Marathon everybody was getting hungry. There was a funny but crude lady named Brenda running the show. She told us to get our asses in there and sit down so we did. She really didn't have a menu she just made us our own private buffet.
The meal was great and rum punch was included.
After that fine meal we decided to explore Placencia a little bit. First we had to quench our thirst.
Then it was time to head out for an evening river tour. This was on the Monkey River
Everybody got a chance to kiss the crocodile.
It was a short trip so we had to pack a lot in. We had breakfast and then got a golf cart. The goal was to visit every establishment that was on the course for the previous days marathon. We had breakfast, got a golf cart, and headed out.
We even ran across the only bowling ally in Belize. It had 4 lanes. We had to bowl a game and have a pizza.
And then it was over. A few short days with a lot of action packed into it.
