Swimming some distance at the Colonies Zone swim meet- score!!
|1650 swimmers - goggles at the ready!|
STUR, CBun, and PBun were in for the 1650;
BLUR thought the 1000 would be pretty nifty!
The GMU Aquatic Center is pretty sweet
And the cooler water temps can't be beat!
|Here are some GMU Aquatic center views!|
STUR and PBun got swim in the same heat next to each other
PBun tried to draft but she couldn't, oh brother!
BLUR started doing her 1000 while their heat was going on
The others got to cheer half or her when they were done
The favor was returned when CBun hit the H2O
For the last heat of the night, don't you know?
PBun trading counting duties with Tamara from Team Z
Who told her about the FB Group for IM Louie!
|Happy distance finishers!|
The rabbits all went their separate ways after a post swim selfie
But two rabbits apparently got McDonald's fries you see
Saturday morning PBun breezed on down to R-VA
It was time for the Monument Ave 10k!
Snagged an excellent garage parking spot
And the port a potty situation was again top notch
|PBun got a selfie with this same lady last year!|
Saw another gal sporting some bunny ears
Rabbit ears selfie? Of course, never fear!
Killed time hanging out by the F corral
To get to her wave TA would take a while
|Cool building to hang out by while waiting on her wave!|
Got to give a shout out of War Eagle to a dude
Then saw Alf and some Power Ranger guys who weren't rude!
|PBun found her wave!|
Which reminds her of a song...
In the TA corral saw rabbit ears behind her
Another rabbit ears selfie? Why sure!
|More rabbit ears!!|
On the way back of the out and back course she saw T-Rex
Was he going to get her? She didn't have time to kvetch!
|This is not Jurassic Park...|
Enjoyed all the music along the way
Had fun with a cow selfie then a spirit tunnel, yay!
|The volunteers and music always rocks on Monument Ave!|
Near the finish saw a sign and thought of STUR:
"You could be doing burpees, it could be worse?!"
But not for STUR cause she's the queen
Of doing burps if you know what we mean!
Got her medal and grub and didn't stick around
Headed to head back home is where she was bound!
|Hot 10k - check!|
Meanwhile it was 35 and raining in Detroit city...
RBug hopped on the treadmill and got down to the nitty-gritty!
She decided to join PBun for a virtual 10k...
Made the time pass easier that way!
Meanwhile there was more CZ swimming going on
Three rabbits today: CBun, STUR, and the Beast swam strong
CBun and STUR wore the Team Rabbit suit?
Maybe not but they sure looked cute!
|The 'official' suit of Team Rabbit?!|
Later that afternoon NanWa visited PBun with her hubs
DavWa was going to switch out her kitchen lights - no troubs!
First one went in quick like a bunny
|No bulb required? Nope - just diodes!|
Which reminded PBun of another song...
The second needed some additional assistance - it wasn't funny
|Wavy track lighting over the sink!|
In the end both of the lights look so fab
And getting to spend time with friends wasn't bad!
|PBun (aka GinWe) loves spending time with NanWa!|
At day two of the CZ meet STUR was inspired to try something new:
She entered and swam the 200IM - its true!
BLUR scored a second place medal for the 1000 free -
Hard work and practice pays off - woo whee!
|BLUR matches her medal!|
The Beast collected 3 medals including first for 200 fly:
One of the toughest events around - my oh my!
|The Beast's medal haul! |
Doing the 200 fly is pretty beastly!
Sunday started off humid and warm...
BLUR and STUR met early to avoid an impending storm.
|Wonder why the Parkway will be closed? |
Hmm, perhaps a race! What race?
At Ft. Hunt STUR ran around the loop to make 8 miles;
And BLUR was riding her bike all the while!
In the end BLUR finished up with a bit of a brick,
While STUR finished her burpees before it rained - slick!!
CBun was at day three of the CZ meet
Her team considers this their spring A race - neat!
She killed her first ever 100 IM
Knocked lots of seconds off understand?
She participated in a 4x400 free relay
Her group earned a first place medal as you can see!
|Yay for the Reston Master's 4x400 relay team!|
Meanwhile, PBun sort of slept in late
Got Jeff on the way to get in a bike ride was her fate
Started off it was a smidge cool but sunny
Didn't need a jacket and warmed up nicely
Had a nice tail wind all the way out
To the turn around st Smith's Switch Station without a doubt
Headed back there was a lot of headwind with which to contend
Then the temperature dropped and the clouds rolled in
In Herndon stopped at Green Lizard Cycling for fun
The coffee bar smelled fab and made them want some!
|It's the Green Lizard!|
Last but not least they got some rain
But got it done all the same!
|PBun's bike views!|
Winnie the Pooh would have thought it was a Blustery Day
But a little Starbucks took the chill away
Later on PBun went headed over to a different Starbucks
It was her final get together with RBud - aw shucks.
Sunday afternoon STUR got in a swim for the fourth day in a row...
Even though the swim last Thursday seems like a long time ago.
