STEB pick up the Beast for the Great Pumpkin Ride – yay!
Made good time to Warrenton VA
Got packet pick up easily squared away
Started just before 10AM for the 32 mile ride
Selfie first, of course, Shaka style!
|Start with a Shaka!|
STEB felt really good on the first 19
Though one hill kicked her butt it would seem
Was a few miles short of the rest stop
When STEB got a rear flat, sure enough.
She had no problem removing the wheel, tire, and tube
Thankfully the Beast had a spare tube and CO2 cartridge she could use!
STEB fixed up her wheel with no real problem
But got a bit dramatic as remounting the wheel became irksome!
Because when it came to putting that rear wheel back
STEB required the assistance of several others, which is wack!
Three of them were struggling: STEB, the Beast, and Brock
When another rider approached and did it lickety split, that not a crock!
|Pumpkin pie? Check!|
Then after the rest stop STEB was just fried
She had absolutely no energy, though she tried
Would have been happy to stop right then
But gutted it out till the very end.
Even the last mile on the rail path was tough
But was she happy she did the ride? Sure enough!
It was a great day to be out on their bikes
STEB and the Beast enjoyed the pie and snacks, which were nice!
|They did it!|

Saturday morning STUR went to a very familiar place-
The Mt Vernon Trail was the space!
Her ultimate goal was a longish run-
Tried to descend each mile just for fun!
That means she started off kind of slow-
40 seconds faster by mile 8- it's a go!
Sunday morning brought the George Mason sprint classic-
Three Rabbits would swim- fantastic!
The Beast and STUR came together so they got in to warm up-
Then they saw CBun and said 'Sup!"
The energy at the pool was off the charts!
CBun and STUR were up first with 100 free-
Both swam their fastest 100 EVER- whee!
CBun really had a great meet-
Totally rocked the 50 free too- sweet!
The Rabbits had fun with BLUR's friend Al-
He videotaped the Rabbits swimming- what a pal!
|Happy swimmers! Thanks, Al!|
STUR also had a challenge with the 100 fly-
Wondering what made her sign up- she did ask why?!!
She enjoyed the fly- she will contend-
Even got a PR on the 200 free in the end!
The Beast swam in the most events-
For her- anything with backstroke is heaven sent!
Fly is also one of her winning strokes-
Her form is perfect - she knows the ropes!
|End on a Shaka!|
The only question is - when?
