There's always room for another race!
That's a horrible idea... What time?!

Snowy VB3 Rap

Friday afternoon STEB and Riley hit the road
Headed to PA and their home away from home!
Riley is all smiley because she is going to see her dog mom!

Upon arrival, pizza and the Olympics were on tap
Till she and Stilt crashed in the recliners – imagine that?
On Saturday STUR had a very rare event:
A complete rest day on a weekend was heaven sent!
She did however sneak in 79 burpees -
But doing them all through the day is kind of a breeze!
After a lazy start they loaded up the SUV
They were headed to watch some basketball if you please!
Stopped to pick up STEB’s uncle along the way
Just a 60 mile drive? You don’t say!
STEB is very short!

Arrived at Waynesburg U with plenty of time to spare
Heard a wonderful rendition of the National Anthem while there
Kare-Bear played a total of 17 minutes
With 9 points of the bench including a 3 – they went on to win it!
Cheers for the WU W!

KBun and Lionel celebrated Valentines a tiny bit late...
But look at that food! It was worth the wait!
Happy belated Valentine's Day!

Let's eat!!

Meanwhile in PA the snow was a coming down
STEB decided not to drive home that night but she did not frown
The snow arrived about 7 hours early!!

Sunday morning she went with Stilt and hit up her YMCA
That was the first time STEB had ever been in a Y – no way?
STEB forgot her sunglasses!

She got her powerlifting workout complete
And in the end a PR on the bench press – that was neat!
The Laurel Highlands Y was full of great equipment!

For STUR, Sunday LATE morning brought a marathon race -
The GW Birthday Marathon in this case!
Arrived on the scene WAY ahead of time...
Luckily the weather was truly sublime!
The start line is a half mile walk- oh bother...
She felt like she was being taken to the slaughter!
Loop one was the longest and fastest for STUR;
And 9.7 miles of run walk ratios did occur.

The second loop - she actually got too warm!
A bit slower pace became the norm...
Somehow STUR failed to bring along her little bag of pills -
Needed some Advil for all these hillz!
Ended up getting some from another runner along the way -
This older gentleman literally had an entire bottle - yay!!

Third loop included an extra long hill-
But seeing the finish line is always a thrill!!
STUR hadn't done a stand alone marathon in 4 years -
Always glad to add another medal to her souvenirs!

Riley and STEB headed for home late Sunday morn....
They saw some abandoned vehicles along the way from the storm!

So staying put was the right move
And Riley had extra time with her dog mom, too!

Multiple Movie Rap

Friday night STEB went to the monthly uke club meeting
Even without the Beast it was a fun gathering!
Added a new song to their list of regulars you see
"When the Saints Go Marching In" seemed kind of timely!
Uke Club is the most fun!

On Saturday STUR and STEB did their double:
Swim practice then a race - really no trouble!
STUR caught a ride with STEB to Audrey Moore -
This looks familiar she'd been here before!
Ready to swim aka pre-8k warm up!

Jumped in a lane and got to work -
A couple of 600's was definitely a perk!
At first STEB started off one lane down
Got moved up to STUR’s lane – she did not frown!
Made a quick change into running gear -
Both bunnies remembered their ears- never fear!
They skedaddled over to Langley Fork Park -
For in the Langley 8k they would soon embark.
Just enough time to get their numbers and be ready...
STUR did a few burpees and had a Gu to keep her energy steady!
No rain here!

The race was small and started with a "GO!"
Soon onto a running path they would all flow.
After the path was some time in a neighborhood...
Started to drizzle a bit,  but it's all good!
STUR found the race to be somewhat hilly -
Only walk breaks were down the hills...really!!!
For STEB it was the opposite:
Uphill walk breaks are legit!
After a bagel and some Gatorade the bunnies weren't through,
Had some burpee and plank stuff to do!
Some might think doing burpees in the rain
Might be a little crazy and insane!
It was nice to mostly beat the rain!

Saturday afternoon STEB went to visit her Aunt Terry
She is her god mother and happens to be 90!
At 90 her aunt is still an avid crocheter!

Saturday night was kind of a movie night:
STUR and JRab first; STEB and Cool Breeze whose ended at midnight!
They all caught up with each other in between
A fun surprise, it would seem!
STEB and  Cool Breeze decided to skip dinner
Flourless chocolate waffles at Carlyle for dessert, a winner!
These are SO good!

On Sunday due to the late night STEB kind of slept in
But then went to powerlifting and did deadlifts again!
STEB's traditional deadlift pic!

After that she headed over to NanWa’s house
They visited, had an early dinner, then a movie, no doubt!
Waiting patiently for THE movie to begin!

It was mostly women and a bit of a rowdy crowd
And a couple people talked through it a little loud!
THIS might have been the cause of the rowdiness....

On Sunday STUR hit the pool a little early…
Got in some meters before masters surely!
Then she swam with the L4 group
Got in three miles total - whoop!

Super Rabbit Rap

Saturday morning - STUR was in it for the long haul -
She planned some distance - walk, run or crawl!
Posted up at Carderock Recreation Area -
The weather was very cold but it wasn't a barrier.
Lovely view along the C&O Canal towpath!
When 17 miles ended up being her final tally -
Was she ready to stop and do burpees? Gladly!
STUR's scenic selfie!
STEB had a Saturday triple on tap
This involved swim, run, then lift as a matter of fact
It's fun to have plates in different colors!
Deadlifted the most that she had in a long time
Then got in a nap before rabbit roundup which was fine
The Beast and CBun did runs of their own
Each both from their own home.
Does this make them super rabbits?
Not really sure but it is a fun habit!
Oops, KBun forgot about the roundup!
Those four rabbits gathered at Joe Theismann's place…
Seemed a good venue before Super Bowl LII in this case!
They were serving New England Clam Chower and Philly Cheesesteak on Super Bowl Sunday!
It seems it was restaurant week in Alexandria
Did all rabbits chose that option? Duh!
The food the rabbits had was yummy! 
After STEB tuned into the #RadioParty and tweeted it out
Then Dave Johnson gave her and PGoodz a radio shout out!
STEB was shocked to hear her name on air!
Sunday morning STEB got in a spin at a steady pace
Before heading to Tyson's Playground for squat day
She also got to try out the seated calf raise machine
By the end her calves were burning it would seem!
She got all her reps in ... burning calves and all! 
Meanwhile, STUR headed over to Mount Vernon Rec -
Was it a long and warm swim? You bet!!

BLUR spun on her trainer and did a killer workout STUR planned
It seems she can kick BLUR's butt remotely -- oh man!
Sunday afternoon during the #PuppyBowl
They had bunny cheerleaders, truth be told!
All the animals on the Puppy Bowl were pretty cute!
STEB made queso to have with tortilla chips

Along with cheese popcorn served in an old football dish!
This dish was used for PGoodz's birthday party many years ago!

Tropical ATL Rap

STEB took a journey that was short and sweet
Down to ATL to visit PGoodz and Luna - neat!
STEB loved seeing this cute face again!!

Saturday night a #WizHawks game was on tap
But before they went on a wild goose chase imagine that?
Somehow ended up at the wrong mall first
Then had a hard time finding a parking space, oh curse!
Spent a little time fiddling around on Patrick's Ovation guitar
In the end she thinks the uke is easier by far
Ovation on the right!

After a pregame meal at the Hudson Grille
Hopped on a MARTA train if you will
Got a glimpse of the new Mercedes Benz Stadium
Where a dude was peeing on the wall - son of a gun
The new MB Stadium!!
Looked pretty cool and PGoodz says it's cool on the inside, too!

Got to Phillips Arena without a hitch
Found Dave and the #RadioParty right quick
It's always cool to check out the #RadioParty!

After they took the obligatory pregame selfie
Got a surprise seat up grade - woo wee!
Thanks for taking the time to chat, Dave!!
And the Twitter follow!

Tried to keep tabs on Wall v Beal jerseys...
Lost count, but saw an Ottomatic and an Oubre!
"OTTOMATIC" in da house?!

An all-male dance team performed during one time out
They were called the A-Team and were something to see no doubt!
Wall was out but the Wiz played a great game
They won by 25 points - insane
Excellent view from the new seats!!

Also on Saturday Fort Hunt Park was the place to be -
BLUR and STUR  were  going to meet there you see.
BLUR started off with a couple of run/walk loops -
Then she could pick up her bike from a Spokes - that's the scoop!
STUR continued on with her run...
Actually wearing Capri pants in the warm sun.
BLUR on her new ride!!
When BLUR returned STUR ran alongside as she biked -
She felt good on her newly fitted ride - psych!!!
Sunday brought the Tropical Splash Swim Meet -
Having four rabbits there was such a treat!!
Four Rabbits +1 AND all their bling!
STUR was first up with a 500 free -
Got that over with a PR - whee!!
The Beast did BOTH 200 and 100 fly!
She did awesome - swimming in a heat with all the guys!
The Beast with her haul!
CBun competed for the first time in backstroke...
Her flip turn was flawless - no joke!!
And first timer BLUR kicked some serious butt-
Swam fast in her 50 free and got first place - what?!!
Yay BLUR!!
STUR had a little mishap in her 100 fly -
She queued up at the wrong starting block? Oh my!!
Scrambling to the block long after the gun went off!
She still got a ribbon, so don't scoff!
CBun was the only participant in the coconut relay -
Swam two laps with a  coconut stuffed in her suit? No way!

When in the south, always visit Waffle House!

After a lazy start, STEB and PGoodz headed to Waffle House
Then hit up the Georgia Aquarium downtown
Attempt at a Whale Shark selfie!

The place was amazing there was lots to see
But STEB'S fave were the otters who are as cute as can be!
Georgia Aquarium views!

Triple Trail Burpee Rap

STEB started her weekend with a Friday afternoon nap
She accidentally skipped her workout - oh snap
She made up for that on Saturday
with a workout triple you don't say?
First a short run - some with her Riley girl
Finished up on the treadmill for real
Next up was her powerlifting workout
Make up from Friday without a doubt
Deadlifts were the main exercise on tap
Did she have fun? Natch!
Deadlift time!!
Finally there was a bunny spin session
The Beast and Jodie came over for the win
They even took a little spin outside
The weather was amazing - no lie
STUR headed out on a run Saturday at a reasonable time-
The weather was perfectly wonderful, so very fine!
On the Mt Vernon trail she went 5 miles out-
Gloves came off for sure without a doubt!
Yay for the sun!!
Turned around - following the same path-
She did over ten miles if you care to do math.
Today for burpees was Day fifty one-
So she pulled over to do some in the sun.
A fellow on the trail gave her a cheer
She invited him to do some burpees with her - never fear!'
He said he'd do five but ended up with thirty!
Burpees are hard - they both did agree!
Turns out a former NFL player she did meet -
STUR could tell he was an athlete!
STUR and her burpee buddy!
Later STEB and Southern Goods took a trip to Bass Pro
Picked up a special safe, don’t you know?
There was a good deal on this sucker!
Sunday morning STEB had another run
A little longer this time - son of a gun
Then she had her powerlifting class with the group
More deadlifts were on tap - whew!!
Back to back deadlift workouts? Yes! 
A guest speaker came to motivate the crew
Back in the day this guy was able to squat a moose
STEB with her Tyson's Powerlifting Club and THE guest speaker!
Photo credit.
Three Rabbits hopped over to the pool on Sunday afternoon
For a good swim and a selfie they were over the moon!
Swimming is the most fun!
The rabbits grabbed lane buddy Mo for another selfie!
STEB lasted longer than she thought she would
It was her longest swim this year…understood?
