Sheila her bike had spent too much time inside!
She pumped up her tires and headed out after eight-
Very nice indeed to sleep in so late!
Found her pink helmet and bike shoes-
Around Fort Hunt park she would cruise.
For 17.5 miles she sat on that bike seat-
Did a short brick run after- sweet!!
|STUR and Miss Tessie!|
Afterwards she relaxed around with her pup-
Getting the bike ride done- she was pumped!
Meanwhile STEB picked up the Beast
They were in for a triple training day to say the least
Started things off at Providence REC
They were there for a one-hour swim set
Then a brief dip in the hot tub was next
After that they were off to South Lakes High School for the rest
|The Beast and STEB ready to roll!|
STEB might have dropped an F bomb or two
When she smashed her knee on the trailer hitch chute
|STEB left a little skin on the trailer hitch receptacle!!|
Two bike loops on the Reston Tri course
Colts Neck Road was bumpy of sorts
Reminded STEB of Stagecoach Road
From IMWI in 2013 don't you know?
Next up was a short run on the path
They were joined by CBun for that!
|CBun, The Beast, and STEB - ready to run!|
STEB and CBun might have taken a wrong turn or two
But the tunnel was familiar if you want the truth!
|looks like they are in a bomb shelter here!|
After their efforts they went to Chick fil A
Always a great way to top off a training day!
Later on she met RBud for some coffee and a chat
Was it was fun to catch up? As always, natch!
|Lots to catch up on!!|
Sunday morning started but it was really still night
STEB hit the road at 4:20? That's right!
It was time for the Annapolis Ten mile run-
STEB picked up STUR for the fun!
Got to STUR's house lickety split -
No traffic to speak of to give them a fit
But unfortunately STUR put the wrong address in her Waze-
It sent the two Rabbits on an orange cone maze!
They finally found the right parking lot-
Got there just before the car onslaught!
|This bottle opener is very cool!|
They picked up their numbers, hat, and bottle opener-
Time to become like a roadrunner!
After packet pick up it was time for a pre race run selfie
It was dark but you could see the reflector on STEB's hat how funny
|Rabbit ears at the ready!|
They each did some pre race laps around the naval academy stadium-
In the beginning they felt like titanium!
|The finish line they will see a little later!|
Race is about to start - get to the starting line-
But a last minute trip to the porta potty would be just divine-
|No weeds were growing in these porta potties though!|
Quick stop over at Bobby's Pottys please -
Then in a group of runners they did squeeze.
STEB was excited to run a new race
And happy that Mother Nature was being nice in this case
The weather wasn't too humid or hot
STEB had a plan and would give all she got
Their ears got a shout out at the start line
The announcer said ‘all wildlife is welcome’ - sounds fine!
Race started well - STUR was running along -
Here comes STEB looking very strong!
The two rabbits met up right before the bridge -
STUR 's knee was being troublesome - just a smidge.
Through the hilly neighborhoods - they went back and forth -
This was good - STUR was never bored!
The rabbit ears also got plenty of love along the way
And the juggler was there as Forrest Gump - how great!
Saw some familiar faces on the course
A selfie while running? Let's be good sports!
|It's hard to selfie while running!|
STEB enjoyed the hills more than she thought would
The shade was a surprising bonus and that's good
|This time the bridge wasn't too bad!|
The bridge was really the part with the most sun
A shadow selfie there seemed like fun
|Got this idea from P-Diddles!|
Next a rabbit selfie on the bridge -
Just up around the corner is the finish passage
|Smiling because the finish is not too far now!|
The finish line couldn't come soon enough-
After crossing they got to collect their stuff-
A cold hand towel and a pullover hoodie-
Say thank you to the volunteers, don't be snooty!
STUR had a little more running to do -
She told herself she'd run 16 its true!
This meant two more miles on the pre-dawn path...
Glad this didn't require too much math!
STEB loved that ice cold wet towel
And of course the DD ice coffee samples
|Iced coconut cream puff coffee? Yes!|
Took in the stadium views while STUR knocked out 2 more
Miles that is, she kicked @$$ for sure!
|Nice view of the field!|
STEB drove them home with a doughnut snack-
They both enjoyed the race - one day they'll be back!
The 42nd edition of the A10 race was a very well run event
Not to be confused with this military jet!
|STEB and her training class standing in front of an A-10 back in the day!|
STEB is so glad she did this race with STUR
And its always fun to write rhymes after!
|Look how pretty Stella is!|
CBun was out with Stella by the way
She rode the 30 mile loop of the Reston Century!
|This is a great sign!|
She and her bike got all warmed up
Are they ready for the Reston Tri? Yup!
|They did it!|
KBun had a biking double with her coach
Nokesville one day and Cambridge the other no joke
BLUR went on a Saturday run of five miles
And a swim on Sunday - that makes her smile!
Sunday afternoon, STEB's dog Riley had fun lined up
It was a doggie birthday party with lots of pups!
You see little Kaiser was turning one
And the dogs and humans pawsitively had fun!
|Dog parties are the most fun!|
And this past rabbit weekend is a wrap!
|Not bad for 28 years old!|
