If you’re a reporter with the assignment of covering a drunken athletic competition on a beach over the 4th of July weekend, you have to expect that the gig won’t be smooth sailing.  But, like a pro, you suck it up and get the work done anyway. Of course, you might also walk away with some scars.

Wendy Burch of KTLA was on the front lines of the Hermosa Beach Ironman, in which contestants run a mile, swim a mile in the ocean, then chug a six-pack of beer.

Poor Wendy got puked on.

Not one to let the vomiting bystander get the last word, Wendy penned a pretty amazing letter in the Huffington Post, explaining the event and the aftermath.

A sampling:

I grabbed a guy who appeared to be a spirited competitor, and from the evidence of his beer belly, had been clearly training for this event for years. My hope was that his broad… ah, erh… shoulders, could shield our morning viewers from the ups — and from what wasn’t staying down — in this competition. What I didn’t notice until later, is that he had a bullseye drawn on his back with the words ‘puke here’ written in magic marker.

It’s that good. I highly recommend you check out her whole account using the link above. What a trooper. Maybe now they’ll give her a real, sober, athletic event.
