  1. You are the “man” Al! God bless you!
    I gave a winito a beer today, he was waiting in line in front of me at Vons on Figueroa.
    Pobre winito was trying to buy a bottle of mouth wash to drink away la cruda, pinche Manager wouldn’t sell it to him, I gave him a bironga and a blessing for the road.
    PS, those jura won’t bite on a plain glazed donut! It’s got to be a jelly donut ese!

  2. I saw you guys and really wanted some beer- but not quite the look I wanted to achieve while running with my middle school students…
    It’s the thought that counts!!! thanks!

  3. Overheard at the cerveza y donuts pitstop, “WHO is the evil genius who came up with this idea?!” Already looking forward to next year’s marathon.

  4. I’d skip the 26.2 miles and head straight for the Tecate and the sprinkled donut!
