Hi Butthead,

I assure you that it is not merely a marketing ploy.  Although I am not an
"officially named" member of a hash group I have visited a few and I do
enjoy the antics and attitude of the group.  I am, at this time, "just
Carrie."  I run with a group that meets throughout the week and on Saturday
mornings so I am not able to attend most weeks but I do enjoy running with
the Ben Franklin Mob when my schedule permits.

Please pass the information along to your group if you think they would be
interested in running the race.  We aim to make the ODDyssey an unique event
and invite all to participate.

Just Carrie
