There she would see family galore!
Rolled into town around 10 am
Before long everyone piled into the car for the beach, amen!
All agreed it was a little bit chilly out
So they headed off to find Piezano Pizza no doubt
After that it was hot tub time
And soon after more family arrived
You wouldn't believe what they had for dinner
Pizza from Tripoli and it was a winner!
There was also cannoli in vanilla and chocolate
All straight from Seabrook, New Hampshire. What?
Next morning STEB was up bright and early
Checking out CrossFit Ocean City, surely
She was not the only visitor to attend -
And STEB felt very welcome all the way to the end!
|STEB Signed the Visitor Board!|
And there were scaling options, natch!
|"Fight Gone Bad + Sit-Ups"|
And it turned out sit-ups were being added... Crazy!
STEB had a blast as a visitor and got a tank top, too
And she looks forward to wearing it real soon!
Later that morning it was back to the beach...
Then a nice dinner out with the family was in reach!
|Fun Family Food Festivities!|
And maybe some funnel cake, for the road?
Saturday morning STUR arrived at her CrossFit box
For the Memorial Day WOD "Murph" - that rocks!!
They didn't warm up much and got right to it -
The task ahead was daunting, she must admit!
Breezed right through the first mile run...
Reminding herself this is all for fun!
Next up: 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, and 300 squats -
Ummmmm - say WHAT?!!!
|STUR, Knocking Out the Pull-Ups!|
Did she pace herself properly? You bet!
|Marking off the Murph sets!|
It was getting pretty hot for the Mt. Vernon crew.
Ran back in the box and flopped to the ground -
Next thing up, a doughnut or two she found!
|2016 Murph Crew at Mt. Vernon CrossFit!|
That's right it's time for the Jim McDonnnell Lake Swim!
WUDoc and STUR took off in the morning from STUR's house...
It's kind of early so be quiet as a mouse!
Rolled into Reston and checked into the lake -
Putting on sunscreen so in the sun they won't bake!
|Team Rabbit, Ready to Swim!|
Of course it was all done in freestyle!
Pushed herself a bit so was glad for the rest-
Next up was the 2 miler where she would try her best!
Everyone in the field was sans wetsuit-
Since the water was 78 degrees they did compute!
Got it done and headed to the snack table -
For all the good food she was grateful!
After this she took a gander at the finishing times -
To see if she placed - it isn't a crime!
Got third place out of ten for the one mile -
Picked up a medal for that - it made her smile!
|Swim Bling Rocks!|
Sunday morning STEB started with a short run,
Then it was back to the beach for more fun!
|Back Seat Selfie on the Way Back to the Beach!|
And STEB got to see dolphins swimming, sweet!
Dinner that night was a special occasion:
Time for the funny family stories is the reason.
|Patriotic Cousins and a Beach View!|
Lots of eating, drinking, and laughing did occur.
Monday dawned with a bit of sun -
Met RBud at Prince William Forest Park for a hilly eight mile run!
WUDoc also had a training weekend that was fantastic.
Made the most of not being at Lake Placid.
Got in a 72 mile bike ride out in Culpeper -
Definitely endured some very hot weather.
She swam the two miles in the Jim McDonnell Swim lake -
On Monday she took a much needed break.
Monday morning STEB hit the road in the dark
Wanted to beat traffic, it wasn't on a lark!
She also fit in a CrossFit class back at MVCF...
It was deadlift day but no doughnuts this time, pfff
Lots of peeps showed up for the second class -
Kudos to those that stayed for booty camp, STEB was out of gas!!
STEB had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with her family
And Team Rabbit is grateful for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, you see.
