No Fall Rap

Friday STEB went to work with her dog Riley
So they could drive to PA afterwards for a quick trip with family
Friday night there was some movie watching going on
Including “Elf” which STEB had never seen – which is wrong!
Saturday she and Stilt might have baby sat a toddler
Which really made the time pass in a blur!
Later they went to Stilt’s daughter’s away basketball game
And had to lug the toddler and his stuff up a crazy hill, insane!
About to start!

The Yellow Jackets ended up losing to the Bearcats
But it was fun to see Kerri play college ball and follow her stats!
STUR and the Beast took off late on Saturday afternoon -
They would be getting in the water very soon!
Their destination was the Germantown Rec Center...
Here they'll find a nice pool in all its splendor!
Time for the Winter Solstice Swim Meet -
Checked in and looked over the heat sheets.
Found their Lane 4 teammates and settled in for the events -
Were they pumped?!! 100 percent!!
Both Rabbits had very solid swim times -
There weren't any PRs but that's just fine!
For the first time they both did two relays - IM and free!
Lots of fun to do they would certainly agree.
Not enough hands to hold all their bling!!

In the end they collected a fair bit of bling -
They headed to Chick-fil-A and counted their medals: cha-ching!
Next up STUR had a very quick turn around -
Early on Sunday she was going to pound the ground!
She would be returning to the Blue and Gray Half Mary -
Was she angry about the early alarm? On the contrary!
Hopped out of bed and grabbed her ears,
Got to Fredericksburg in good time - never fear:)
From years past - the race started in a different place -
Start line at Old Mill Park in this case.
Hospital Hill was replaced with his evil twin -
And at about mile five it did begin.
A little hill history!

This one's name is Fall Hill Road -
She slowly ran up - trying not to implode.
The route mostly went on the Rappahannock Trail -
Lots of really beautiful views without fail.
Pretty river views!

Back down Fall Hill Road - three miles to the finish -
Do you want a medal? STUR got her wish!!
More bling?! Yes!!

Once finished she discovered they had run out of donuts -
She didn't throw a tantrum - she must be a grownup!
Happy to be able to run in such beautiful weather -
An excellent event and new course altogether!
Sunday morning STEB headed over to Tyson’s Playground
And at the powerlifting team workout she could be found!
The day’s workout focused on biceps and chest
Between each rep STEB is learning to appreciate the rest!
Back at home later that day
STEB climbed up on to her roof – no way?
Yes, she was up there to put up Christmas lights
Happy to report she did not fall off which was nice!
Her son helped by holding the extension ladder natch
And was at the ready to call 911 in case of a mishap
Then she had to suck up some leaves...
As they were making the front steps dangerous it seems!
