They were going to run on runway 1R in this case!
|Running on the runway was a very cool experience!|
Getting to the race, the Rabbits got to walk through Udvar-Hazy-
Seeing all the planes in the early am- sure was crazy!
There was even an SR71 Blackbird there
Which would have been awesome to see flying in the air!
|Check out that stealthy SR71 in the background!|
Before the race they got to hang out with Barbie and his wife
He is going to do the MCM next month how nice
|Always fun to find friends before the start!|
Got to see Kim's husband as well
Hopefully this year's race his 5th straight went swell!
|Ready to roll!|
To start the race we heard music from Top Gun -
This got us psyched and ready to run!
STUR started off way too fast-
This kind of pace certainly wouldn't last.
The course was one big out and back-
Seeing the United plane so close- sure was whack!
|Not sure what type of engine this is....maybe a Pratt & Whitney? |
United Boeing 757
CBun and STUR wish they had brought along hydration-
STEB brought her handheld- it was her salvation.
|A nice view of the terminal over yonder!|
It had been years since STEB had walked on a runway
Reminded her of FOD walks from back in her Air Force days
Foreign object damage can be pretty bad
Because engine damage would be a drag
A couple dressed like a pilot and stewardess were running, too
STEB got a selfie with them – they were so cute!
|They were so nice to stop for a picture with STEB!|
The rabbits rejoined at the finish line
And checked out the bling
|It's not always about the medals, but they are cool!|
And then the sky!
|The clouds looked very cool!|
After the race it was back through the museum
And a quick stop at the Little Stinker, you had to see 'em!
|The Little Stinker is so cute!|
|Read about it here, too!|
Saturday afternoon STEB hung out with her friend NanWa
Lunch at Guapo’s then Starbucks after, y'all
|NanWa and GinWe!|
She might have gotten a cute foxy cookie treat…
And whoever did this drawing well its pretty neat!
|This fox was seriously cute!|
Sunday morning STEB headed back over to CBun's place
From there they walked to the start of the Perfect 10 Race
|Picture in front of the SLHS Seniors Wall - it's tradition!|
CBun decided to switch to the 10k
Before the start and got a new bib - yay!
|Ready for the Perfect 10!|
STEB planned to tackle the 10 miles
But by mile 3 decided that that wasn't wise.
At the 6 mile mark she then made the switch
And for her a 10k would be it
Thankfully that choice was an option
And told the timers before the finish line crossing
Got to see Kim in the last mile
And at the finish they met for a picture all smiles
CBun and STEB both have vowed to get
Revenge on the Perfect 10 Mile you can bet!
|Double 10k? Yes!|
Meanwhile, JRab dropped STUR off in Arlington!
For the Clarendon Day double she'll have two starting guns!
The 5k was first and the first mile is pretty much downhill -
For STUR this is not necessarily a thrill.
But thankfully it flattens out and finishes on the up side-
STUR was happy with her 5k ride!
|Here she comes, here comes Team Rabbit!|
She didn't realize the way back to the 10k starting line was quite so far-
One and a half miles it was – she could’ve used a car
She ran into BLUR on the way back -
She was there to keep David on track!
Anyway the race had started and she wasn't in line-
Everyone was gone but she decided not to whine
Finally got to the chip mat and was on her way-
Was able to pass some folks- you don't say!!?
Finished feeling hot but happy-
Give me those two medals- snappy, snappy!
|Double Bling is the Bomb!|
Reconnected with BLUR and David for a post-race pic-
He had a great race- fast as a lick!
|Double Bling Smiles for STUR!|
After a nice nap, STUR was ready to swim at masters...
A nice two mile recovery was all that mattered!
