We were too busy actually getting married to train for this, so we unfortunately missed the North American Wife Carrying Championship, a 278-yard obstacle course featuring teams of two where, you guessed it, one spouse carries the other over the length of the race.
Despite the event's name, a woman may carry a man, although so far no wife has shouldered the weight of her husband.
The prize for the event, in addition to cash, is the winner's wife's weight in beer. And no, I won't tell you how much we'd win if we entered. L would kill me.Posted by Doug at October 12, 2004 10:28 PM
