Seems he was 'on' the Paul Finebaum show at AU - how fun!
|I spy...PGoodz behind Paul Finebaum's laptop!|
Saturday morning Jodie, David, and STUR rolled out just at dawn-
We're ready for the Freedom 5k - come on!!!
The start location was somewhat in doubt!
STUR got to experience a porta potty never been used-
Clean and with toilet paper- she was almost confused!
Finally other runners were milling about-
Her rabbit ears were getting many a shout!
The group did some stretching then they had to line up-'
Did they start out running together? Yup!
|STUR and Jodie found the starting line!|
Looking forward to what the course will bring!
First mile showed what the course will offer-
Still wishing it was flat? Don't even bother:)
A little off road and a narrow single track-
Jodie was powering up those hills- no turning back!
Around mile 2 there was a nice surface easy on your knees/
And to go along with it a very cool breeze.
The finish line in sight and the music blaring-
There was another hill but nobody was caring!
David came out to cheer them on-
At this point Jodie looked very strong!
She did it! She did it! Jodie met her goal and faced her fears!
She was crying happy tears!
|Jodie, the Happy Finisher!|
Saturday morning STEB tried to sleep in
But a certain little kitty wouldn't let that happen
She had plans to meet for a bagel and coffee
And listening to George Michael's 'Faith' from the movie Keanu was a treat
Once back home she had a list of chores
Basically rearranging the garage, it wasn't a bore
During the process she put her hands on something that was missing
Her favorite hat patch of course, won't keep you guessing!
|Team Rabbit is always happy to Embrace the Suck!|
Looks forward to wearing it soon - there's no remorse!
Next day STUR was up even earlier!
It was awfully dark, waiting for the sky to get swirlier!
The swirls of sunrise finally came-
Arrived at Carderock Recreation Area - she was in the game!
STUR had unfortunately woken up with a cold in her head-
She didn't think once about returning to bed ( haha)
They lined up on the tow path in no particular order-
The course is only closed to traffic that's vehicular.
|C&O Canal Towpath Views!|
For the first ten -STUR walked a minute at those markers without fail.
|More C&O Canal Towpath Views!|
Running by Fletcher's boat house brought back memories- lots and LOTS!
|Even More C&O Canal Towpath Views!|
Was her knee hurting? Just a smidge.
STUR figured she better slow down a bit-
She was doing the 20 miles - there was no quit!
Goal was to make the distance, not beat the clock!
Saw the finish banner and she was psyched-
Got her cool orange finishing shirt then she felt wiped.
She did the tunnel hill 50 miler- remember?
STUR was surprised when she removed her shoes later...
Seems the new socks she wore didn't do her any favors!
Sunday morning that kitty again was her alarm
But she's so cute and doesn't mean any harm!
|Hard to get mad at this cute little face!|
Wakefield by the ball fields was the start
|RBug and STEB, ready to 'Embrace the Suck'!|
As they reached the marina they got a nice view of the lake
Took their time on the second part
And have to say the walk breaks were smart
Later on STEB was meeting other friends
NanWa and Janet for the movies again
Apparently Bridget Jones had a baby!
Did STEB enjoy the story more than the first ones? Maybe!
