There's always room for another race!
That's a horrible idea... What time?!

Perfect Water Rap

Saturday morning some rabbits gathered in the dark…
KBun, PBun, and Jeff were going biking somewhat on a lark.
Started out and headed to Nokesville Park…
On a ride filled with the fog and trucks they did embark.
The fog wasn't bad in the park, but it was on the route. And the trucks... Eek!

Made the decision to head back to the car
Bike ride plan B? Why sure!
Ended up at the upper lot at Lake Accotink
Two loops through North Springfield and Ravensworth, you think?
No fog here!

All told these riders hit total mileage of 50
Even though the ride was broken up the day was nifty!
After PBun had a snack after the ride
Took her pup out for a mile stride
STUR started her weekend off with a longish run -
She went 10.5 miles and it was all in the sun!
Couldn't run longer because she had to get ready…
BLUR was giving her a ride to Rock Hall - must get peppy!
They were headed there on an overnight -
The Waterman's Sprint is Sunday - out of sight!
At arrival they met up with their pal Al -
The Waterman’s Crab House was the locale.
By the way, friend Al now has a rabbit name -
“Go MRab!” (for male rabbit) we will exclaim!
Podium Al aka MRab rocking his new ears!

Had a nice lunch of salad and crabs -
Outside on a beautiful dock - not too bad!
No crabby rabbits here!

Next up was a look at the swim course:
Looks pretty straight forward was the report.
Swimming will be allowed on race morning though!

Packet pick up! They were right on time -
As a matter of fact they were very first in line!
Now the three rabbits decided to drive the bike route…
There would be very little elevation - that's absolute!
Time to check in to the Holiday Inn Express -
Must haul in all the triathlon mess!
In a blink of an eye it was time to eat again -
Wonderful Italian food - it's not a sin.
A viewing of "Mean Girls" was 'so fetch' but it was time for lights out -
And BLUR knows how to get a good night's sleep without a doubt!
Sunday morning, two rabbits gathered again
It was KBun and PBun for the win!
They were headed to Reston for the =PR= Perfect 10 race
It was a perfect day to run in this case!
Always must do a selfie at the SLHS Seniors Wall!

After picking up their packets and a selfie, they then lined up
They were in for the 10 mile where they saw a cute pup!
Rabbits, ready to run!

Half Fanatic Greg came over to say hi…
No selfie, but he is a racing machine – oh my!
KBun and PBun started together and took a few walk breaks
Did the first loop then got a bit separated in this case
PBun kept KBun’s bunny ears in sight
And ran the last two miles without a walk break – all right!
In fact, she knocked 2 minutes off her final mile
Then sprinted on to the track with a smile!
Perfect day for the Perfect 10!

Caught up at the finish line with KBun
Then they headed for pancakes at IHOP – son of a gun!
KBun about to enjoy her hot cocoa!

Meanwhile, STUR and BLUR were up – not too much of the crack…
Got those bikes lickety split on that rack.
The girls had been warned about a very muddy parking lot -
But they ended up in an extremely PRIMO spot!!
Found their transition spot - time for a bunny-ear photo op…
Now time for the wetsuit hop-hop-hop!
Walk to the water, soon they'll be jumping in…
Wetsuit legal and perfect make it a win-win-win!
STUR swam hard all the way to the yellow wiggly man -
Then all the way to transition she (sort of) ran.
Bike ride for STUR was uneventful and smooth -
Always glad to be done with the bike, if you want the truth.
Donned her running shoes and to the run "out"
Wearing the bunny ears she would get many a shout!
Finish line is coming; it's always the best -
Soon a shiny medal she would possess!
They did it!

Found MRab and BLUR and hit the post race grub…
Drank a lot of Gatorade – glub-glub-glub!
Then the rabbits got some very exciting news:
"Award winning rabbits" strikes again - that's your clue!
MRab hit the podium for his sprint race -
Ran a very fast effort to earn second place!
MRab on the podium for the second straight day!

As a matter of fact MRab really enjoyed his ears -
He hopped like a bunny to finish line amidst cheers!
Ears everywhere!

And BLUR won extra bling, too!!!
Third in that aquabike category it's true!
Yay BLUR!!

BLUR thinks aquabike may be her new event -
The fact she didn't run? She did not lament!
