Right Place, Wrong Time

ringracephotoHave you ever heard the song “Right Place Wrong Time” by Doctor John? Ok- good.

So I received a call from my close friend Mike about attending a running race with him in the city of Buffalo. We are both avid runners, so I was thinking this was a 5k or something like that.

When he picked me up the next morning he non-chalantly mentioned, “Oh, hey, this is actually a scavenger hunt race”. Okay, I thought, that’s still good. Knowing that there’s usually some kind of prize at the end, we were both in our running shorts and sweat resistant shirts, ready to sprint through the city and finish this hunt in first place.

Looking around at our competitors, we figured this should be a piece of cake. In fact, most of the participants seemed to be couples.  Actually, they were all couples…

Upon further investigation, we realized we had gotten ourselves into the “Reeds-Jenns Race for the Ring”- a scavenger hunt for a $10,000 wedding ring.

We stood out like a sore thumb, but decided we were still going to give this thing a go. We were there- might as well go for it.

We were sprinting all throughout the city, racking up points and having a ball. It only dawned on us at the last hint, what do we do if we win? Do we pretend we’re together, or am I a stand in for his girlfriend?

Luckily we were 2 points off from the win, but whenever Mike calls me about a race now- I make sure I do my research.

Zachary Tomasik is 5'11", ruggedly good looking, has a charming wit, lives with his parents, and was single for a long long time. Now I've got a really great girlfriend that probably is too good for me, but she hasn't figured that out yet. I like running, reading about running, science, and eating. Healthy food of course being that I'm really fit. Duh. I could mention that I'm a tad insecure but that has probably been well highlighted by the majority of my bio. Carry on.
