Not a lot of time - so she had to be quick
A little time with Trixie on the trainer
Followed by her treadmill it was a no brainer!
After it was time to get prepared
For a fun b'day weekend - no reason to be scared!
First a stop at the airport for a pick up
Things were on time there were no hiccups!
Then started the night with dinner at Austin Grille
Did it include a fireball shot? Just one and they got their fill!
|Four of them had a shot. Just one!!|
And their guys went along too - the fun never ends!
RBug who is also know as L4 -
She was their ticket connection for sure!
The other MOTR is known as D1
She is also STEB's aka G5's hair twin, not to mention!
After dinner they headed over to Jiffy Lube Live
They were going to 'Kick the Dust Up' - it's no surprise!
With special VIP passes in tow
With a special VIP entrance with bathrooms and a bar
To get to their seats they didn't have to walk very far!
|The group had a blast!|
With Dustin, Randy, then Luke the show went by fast
Luke Bryan entered with one of STEB's faves:
She heard "GDFR" and though, "no way?!"
After his encore you won't believe what they played:
"Turn Down for What," is all the rage!
Sunday was kind of a lazy day
But a good way to spend a birthday, wouldn't you say?
Meanwhile, STUR was headed up North for a race
In the end thankfully she did not lose her suitcase!
Getting to Vermont was a bit of a challenge-
But in the end STUR she did manage!
From her first flight STUR got the bump-
Didn't fly out 'til almost 10 hours later- humph!!
Met some other travelers who met the same fate-
Still tried to have some laughs at the gate!
Finally made it to Burlington on the same day-
Andy and Jeff to pick her up- hooray!
Didn't get to bed until 1:30 AM-
Alarm going off at 6- hmmmm.
But ring the alarm did and they were off to the race-
Von Trapp Family Lodge - that was the place!
Got all checked in and it was very low key-
|STUR and friends ready to tackle Catamount!|
It was the 25kers turn and they lined up on the grass-
|STUR is ready to start!|
Heard one racer say to another- "see you on the MOUNTAIN!"
Huh?!! STUR wasn't sure she liked how THAT sounded..
But soon they said "GO!" and pretty much went straight uphill-
Seeing the beautiful scenery was quite a thrill!
On the rocks, grass, and mud she'd have to be focused!
There was much bunny love to be heard on the trail-'
Ultra runners are so friendly pretty much without fail!
"Hey there YOU I finally found my pace bunny!"
She told him he'd be better go on his own way honey!
"You know catamounts like to eat bunny rabbits!"
She was hoping they wouldn't cause any havoc!
"Love the outfit, the ears and the hat!"
Kept STUR's mind busy- she was sure of that.
She imagined these trails all covered in snow-
Cross country skiing would probably be the best way to go!
At one point she thought she would never be done-
So she started singing "the hills are alive" in the sun!
The mud was so epic but she'd have to embrace it-
Her shoes were a mess but she just couldn't quit!
|THE muddy shoes!|
There was no concern for the time clock- tick-tock!"
But before she knew it she emerged from the woods-
Now she was running as fast as she could!
Crossed the finish line and collected her pint glass-
|Finisher's pint glass? Heck yeah!|
Met up with Jeff and Andy who finished hours before-
They were enjoying the beer and company- score!
STUR thinks this was one challenging event.
But oh so glad that she went!
Next day was gloomy and rainy-
Planned bike ride was cancelled- just crazy!
Set out to a town in Vermont called Woodstock-they were motivated!
It's where the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller national park is located-
Unbelievable amount of history was to learned-
Since on an informational tour they took a turn!
Did a hike across a bridge to see a rushing waterfall-
Seeing it from up high made her feel so small-
|Feeling small by the big waterfall!|
The newest race adventure there she'll work hard to find!
