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

Triple Taper Ten Rap

Saturday morning was a triple workout for PBun
Masters swim, ride with Jeff, then a brick run
The swim was pretty much uneventful
Shared a lane with just one person, no bull
Picture was actually from Thursday night - after lights out!
Met up with Jeff at 9 in the Audrey Moore lot
He had a little Garmin watch trouble, what a crock 
PBun is ready to ride!
And PBun forgot to starts hers but caught that early on
Just two loops in Ravensworth and North Springfield to get done
Balls! Balls! Everywhere were balls!
Watch where you ride or you could take a fall
On the road were little acorns and stuff like that
Seriously if you hit them you might go splat!
The ride otherwise went fine and the weather was ok
Made one brief pitstop because they could, you don't say?
Now PBun is ready to run!
Finished the ride and headed out to run
PBun went off the beaten path for some fun
PBun did not get her feet wet or see any stray arrows!
Glad she did because what do you know?
Saw Tommy Turtle on the trail moving slow!
It's fun to see wildlife on the trail!
Starbucks after seemed like a good plan
Then shopping for Halloween decorations at the Dollar Store? Yeah man!
Meanwhile, a trio of bunnies hit up the Chinquapin pool on Saturday -
STUR got there early and got a lane, that's the way!
BLUR was very happy with her 2000 meter pace -
Working on her form she does embrace!
The Beast was in full Ironman taper mode-
Got in a solid swim -it really flowed!
STUR had 4000 meters to do-
A variety of strokes and sets - it's true!
Sunday morning- STUR hop, hop, hopped on the metro train-
It was early but not insane!
Plenty of time to walk to the ATM start-
Found a medical tent sign to meet her friends- smart!
It's always good to have a meet up plan!
Soon she saw another pair of ears-
There was her bunny friend KBun- cheers!
Bunnies unite!
Another friend she was supposed to meet-
Jen from CFK found her at the sign-sweet!!
Crossing paths with a CrossFit friend!
The trio made their way over to the start line shuffle-
It was VERY humid- lots of fluids they better guzzle.
Finally started and the trio split up-
Did they all have different paces? Yup!
The course was changed a bit for the better this year-
No Hains Point and the Key Bridge was added it did appear
At mile 2 - STUR saw someone she knew-
David was there cheering it's true!
Truly for STUR the race went in a blink-
Happy to see her watch and the mile markers were pretty much in sync.
STUR's water bottle fell out of her belt a total of five times-
She never had to pick it up herself- she didn't whine
Went across the finish line and got her coin-
With her friends she hopes to rejoin!
Found KBun at least and they got some snacks-
But there was zero time to relax.
They did it!

STUR and KBun ran/ walked/ shuffled back to metro-
More running miles for STUR- it's a go!
She got off at the station for Braddock Road-
7 more miles back and forth- all told!
Meanwhile PBun got up at the crack
Then when it got light went for a run, that's a fact
Did the first mile with her dog Riley
You can't tell in the picture but she was smiley!
Riley is always up for a run!

Saw another 'turtle' while out in her neighborhood
A reminder to go slow? Sounds good!
Team Rabbit had a good laugh over these 'turtles' last year in Kona!

This was her last long run before IM Lou
She is getting nervous and excited, it's true!
So are rabbits KBun and the Beast
But they are going to do their best to say the least
After her run, PBun cut the grass
Then got out Halloween decorations, at last!
A pre race massage was on tap next
The time to put the decorations up if you couldn't guess
CBun knocked out miles totaling 19.5
All for the Regal Bank - and that's no jive!
The Beast got in her last long ride before Ironman Louisville
And worked out a few bike kinks - no big deal!
The Beast is ready to rock IMLou!!

Three days in a row Team Rabbit peeps ate at Five Guys
Must mean the burgers are good - no surprise!
Even Lazlo got into the patty act...
Five Guys gives you one for your dog - fact! 
Burgers make Lazlo smiley!
