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

Veterans Bucks Rap

Friday night started with a uke club session
The Beast and PBun carpooled and it was fun!

Played a wide variety of songs
Even attempting Bohemian Rhapsody- is that wrong?
Uke Club was packed! One person didn't fit in the frame!
Thanks for having us, Beverly Hills United Methodist Church!

Saturday PBun was up before the crack of dawn
Headed out to Audrey Moore for swim before long
It was Coach Kira's last L4 practice
It's for certain that she will be missed
After she returned back home
Hopped on the bike trainer don't you know?
After that she did a short brick run
Then deadlifted singles to find her heavy one
PBun put an additional 10 pounds on the bar before calling it quits!

Later that day was a family gathering
Lots of cousins at the festivities
Also please note that there was pie
Even though it wasn't March 14, no lie!
It was definitely not at the crack when CBun and STUR headed out of town...
On their way to P-A is where they could be found!
Stopped at Chick-fil-A on the way - sweet!
Fast, traffic free ride to the hotel can't be beat!
The bunnies took a nap then headed out to dinner-
Found a good ole Olive Garden, winner-winner!
Pasta is always a good thing...

In bed early after a showing of Bridget Jones's Baby
They got 9.5 hours of sleep- crazy!
Sunday morning PBun was again up early
This time the Veterans Day 5k was the why
Over at the =PR= located at Fairfax Corner
PBun likes this course that’s for sure!
PBun sans ears...she did put them on for the race!

A local drill team presented the colors
They were wearing military uniforms from different eras!
This drill team was so cool! The different uniforms were really neat.

As she was finishing the race announcer gave PBun a shout out
Never too early for the Easter Bunny without a doubt!
Next morning in PA it was just a bit chilly -
But it was nice and sunny, not dreary!
A low key race with plenty of parking-
The Washington Crossing Historic Park was just darling!
Staying warm in the car, pre-race!

For some bizarre reason they started off in waves -
This was a very small race - they need to explain!
CBun and STUR went off together in wave 3 -
One wave was behind them you see!
CBun and STUR - ready to run!

Both rabbits loved the path right from the start-
The smooth, flat trail had beauty off the charts!
Lovely view of the trail and scenery!

The course was supposed to be two even loops-
But STUR decided to make hers a little bit different- oops...
Hmm, was this before or after STUR went off course?

STUR took a left when she should have gone right-
But she didn't wallow long in her plight.
Got back on course and tried to enjoy the beautiful day-
Meanwhile CBun was kicking a$$- you don't say?!
CBun was there at the finish line to cheer STUR on!
To finish this race -they had a lot of braun!
Happy finishers!

Look at these bucking medals!

Posed for a picture in their Mylar blankets-
This really was a perfect race for these rabbits!
Mylar blankets rock!

Meanwhile BLUR swam in the chilly San Francisco Bay -
She was brave enough to jump in to 58.8 degree water - no way!!
Way to go, BLUR!

She may have spotted a sea lion or a seal…
Beautiful place to do some OWS for real!
Also, MRab was down in Miami
Racing in the National Aqua Bike you see
Welcome to  Miami, man!

Did not lose his leg to an alligator
Which might have caused a bit of trouble later!
Congrats, MRab!

Turns out that he was fifth in the nation…
Hopefully now he gets a vacation?
KBun had fun at the Howard University Gala
Anniversary of 150 years is pretty amazing!
KBun is killing it!

KBun's dress is FAB!!

Sunday afternoon while raking up leaves
PBun found a mouse stuck in the AC unit, deceased
Poor Myron Mouse!

Alligator Drag Rap

Friday night PBun picked up her son
After a minor weather related airport diversion!
The rain caused the plane to land at IAD
Instead of DCA where it was supposed to be
PBun ended up picking PGoodz up at IAD!

Saturday morning PBun started things with a swim
Then the Bohemian Rhapsody movie with PGoodz for the win
Beautiful blue sky after all the rain the night before!

Finally took down Halloween decorations
While PGoodz assembled the old Lego pirate ship for fun!
STUR was very happy to have a low key weekend- 
Many races and events around the bend!
Did a home WOD with reps of a hundred 
Some of her favorite exercises together were bundled.
STUR and JRab then had a fun night out-
Enjoyed their time at a play without a doubt.
Happy for date night!

Sunday morning PBun hopped on her bike trainer for a bit
Then made a yummy French toast breakfast
Next she and PGoodz headed to Van Dorn Street station
Off to FedEx Field to cheer on the team from Washington 
Beautiful day for a football game!
Despite the Skins loss, they had fun!

As they made their way towards Redskins nation...
The guard warned them to look out for the defecation
There was a huge pile of horse poop
Didn't want to step in it - and that's the scoop
Sunday STUR got antsy sitting around all day-
So she went in extra early to the pool to play.
Got in 4600 meters - longest swim in awhile.
Being at the pool always makes her smile!
KBun will become an Ironman. AGAIN!

KBun successfully completed IMFL!
Down in Haines City, isn't that swell?
KBun found her name!

The swim was a two loop course in Lake Eva,
They dragged lake for alligators first, would you believe?
The bike wasn't flat but it wasn't like IMLou or IMLP
But there was a mini Keene descent apparently
She had to deal with rain on the run
But at least it wasn’t chilly without the sun
Crossed the finish line with a great, big smile
Now she can kick back and relax for a while!
Here she comes!

Look at that smile!

Congrats to KBun!!

Reunion Disco Rap

STUR took a trip down to the lake
It was a girlfriend college reunion for goodness sake
Visited lots of breweries and went on at least one walk
Pretty much all they did was talk
They did a lot of laughing, too!

STUR  thinks being with old friends is good for the soul
To do this at least once a year is now their goal
Saturday after a swim run brick
PBun took Trixie to get service lickety split
Also dropped off her wheel that was flat
The one with the tubular tire, natch
Then headed out to Herndon town
Lunch and a visit with NanWa was going down
Hit up Guapo's - their favorite haunt
Good food and conversation was part of this jaunt
Coffee is always a good idea!

After coffee they headed over to the Party City shop
Needed some trunk or treat supplies - chop-chop
Sunday PBun did a bike run brick
Trainer and treadmill and she kept it quick
After she got ready for the trunk or treat shindig
A disco theme complete with a disco ball - but not too big
"Let's Boogie!" complete with ABBA playing on Spotify!

It was fun and she won prize for most creative
She must admit that it was pretty festive!
PBun thinks the "Murdering Logger" deserved an honorable mention!

KBun is preparing for IMFL next week
With a 70 mile trainer ride and 10 mile run - neat!
KBun's flower from Buck's from the IMLou trip and her bike trainer in the background!

CBun went on a 22 mile long run -
Then with CRab it was haunted house fun!
The Beast went out and got her run on - sweet
Since the pool happened to be closed for a swim meet.

Creeper Canada Rap

Friday morning PBun took Riley to work
Then headed to Acme P-A to Stilt's, of course!
Riley had a reunion with her dog mother
That's Izzy from PA, and no other!
Izzy and Riley, reunited again! 

After a nice meal of mashed potatoes and pot roast
Suzy's frozen custard for dessert is the most!
Saturday early she then hit the road
Off to Detroit city, don’t you know?
For the Free Press International Half Marathon race
With RBug and a couple of her family members in this case
Race on Sunday morning and it was a bit chilly
Kept warm pre-race in the corrals, silly
It was warm in the corral with all the people between the tall buildings! 

Before this PBun had a little accident
Got her thumbs pinched in the port a potty latch
Her left thumb was actually cut and bleeding
But a tissue in her glove kept it from leaking
PBun's thumb, after she cleaned it up! 

It was super cool to run over the Ambassador Bridge to Canada
Approaching the Ambassador Bridge! 

Did PBun take a bridge selfie? No duh!
This was a cool bridge to run over! 

The folks in Canada were happy to be out there to cheer -
PBun saw her favorite sign ever over there!
Lots of folks were there to welcome runners to Canada! 

A few miles along the water before heading back to the USA
Better show your bib number or they'll stop you - no way!
Down through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel and then back up
Welcome Back to the USA - suck it up buttercup!
Lots of folks welcoming the runners back to the US! 

While in the tunnel would you believe they found Waldo?
He was actually a nice guy from Kalamazoo!
HERE'S Waldo! 

PBun and RBug ran the whole race together
Finally - sprint to the finish and it's over!
Thrilled to get not one but two bottles of chocolate milk
And a bag of recovery foods - that was legit!
SO NICE to be given a bag of goodies post-race and not have to juggle stuff!

The walk back to the car was bitter cold
But Krispy Kreme donuts were the reward on the way home

JRab and STUR went on a camping adventure-
Drove down near Mount Rogers in all its splendor.
Nice view!

It's the highest peak in Virginia, don't you know-
STUR's brother and sis-in-law were along too- it's a go!
Every night a campfire and a great home cooked meal-
Ate things called "greggs" and "slump" and "banana boats" for real!
A view of camp! 

Friday took a bike ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail -
Lots of beautiful scenery without fail!
Let's get riding!

The Virginia Creeper Trail is fun! Except for the hornet...

Sis-in-law Pam got stung by a hornet-
Did he want her apple? You bet!
Saturday the group took a 4 mile hike  on the actual AT -
The Appalachian Trail is quite a beauty!
The white blaze on the AT

The last night was very windy and cold-
These two did some real camping - they feel pretty bold.
BLUR and David went to the Bark Ball with friends
Nice to support the animals and Humane Rescue Alliance, understand?
Bark Ball for a Great Cause!
Team Rabbit loves the Humane Rescue Alliance!

CBun and CRab did the wine tasting, apple picking, pumpkin patch thing - 
The crisp Fall weather really made them sing!
The Fall weather made CBun and CRab smile, too!
