Scare Tactics

There are some scary rumors going around on the Death Race Facebook page:
His biggest mistake in his first time out was his footwear, Cusick said. He wore desert combat boots.“I figured they would be best for me because I’m in my work boots all the time. But I needed something lighter,” he said.
He’s planning to buy cross-training shoes for this year’s race.
When Weinberg, the race co-founder, heard about Cusick’s plans he sent this message: “If you talk to John tell him not to spend too much money on nice shoes because this year they have to make their own shoes like the Shakers did.”
And that’s not just from one source, but two:
Said Weinberg, who might not be joking, this one will begin with all the entrants turning in their beloved running shoes and being forced to fashion a wooden pair of shoes using primitive tools. At the finish line, Weinberg said, all contestants will get two things – “a hearty handshake and a bag of manure.”
Bring it on. I’ve done the preparation. If it’s not enough, it’s not enough and I’ll make it as far as I make it. If we have to make our own wooden shoes from the suspicious list of gear we’ve been given: saw, hand drill, rope…then I will laugh (because that’s what I do in the face of the impossibly absurd), make my shoes, and suffer as long as possible.
