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

One Rap

On Saturday STUR tackled CrossFit Open workout 19.1
Just 15 minutes of wall balls and rowing would be oh so fun?
STUR had a tough but a very fair judge…
A few no reps for the wall balls - oh fudge!!
Saturday, PBun did another indoor triathlon
Masters swim,  spinning, then a treadmill run
Things went better than she expected
Because from that marathon she's not fully recovered
On Sunday Lazlo was itching to move his dog legs -
But first for breakfast he and STUR both had some eggs!
Lazlo, ready to do some running!
Made it a nice distance at a pretty good pace -
Both were glad that it wasn't a race!
PBun went to the Tysons Playground powerlifting group
Benching, squats, and deads were on tap if you want the scoop
Later on she did an easy run of an hour 15
Just on the treadmill it would seem
All of PBun's critters were there to cheer her on. Even the elusive Carmen!
RBug headed to Tampa to meet up with her sister and niece
They would each run two races a piece!
A nice day for a 15K!
Saturday was the Gasparilla 15K
It sure looked like a beautiful day
Sunday the race was an 8k
They were joined by a friend by the way
Yay for the 8K!

A Birthday Rap

Saturday morning was another indoor tri for PBun
It felt good to get it done.
Since this weekend STUR would attempt a 26.2 on her feet-
So in the pool she decided on 26 x 200 repeats!
Marathon Sunday, wake up at the normal time
Head up to Greenbelt to toe the line
KBun, STUR, and PBun all met up at the Youth Center
A Rabbit selfie with George? Yes sir!
By George, it's almost time to run!

A bit of a hike to get to the starting line
The three original rabbits chatted to pass the time.
Team Rabbit, ready to 'embrace the suck'!

Before long it was time to go...
And under the arch the runners did flow!
And they're off!

STUR and PBun were together around mile five
When the eventual winner just flew on by!
Along here they spotted a dude taking a pee
PBun would talk to him eventually you see
It turns out STUR’s knee was not up for the task -
She still ended up with 12 miles if you must ask!
Took out a bit of aggression later at the pool -
With the Beast leading the lane, it’s all cool!
KBun had a good, strong race
She and PBun thought the hill at the end was misplaced
PBun kept on smiling throughout
And looked forward to post race chili no doubt
Loop 3, here she comes!

The volunteers were all super nice
But maybe doing the GW Birthday Marathon as a relay would be the rabbits' advice!
Going down the stairs backwards can be fun
Sometimes happens after you run a marathon

Way Home Rap

Friday night was uke club for PBun
And as per the usual, she had fun!
Yay for uke club!

Saturday morning she was up kind of early
Swimming then a bike-run brick was going down, surely
PBun's crew coming to greet her as she finished her bike spin!

STUR was not sure what workout to do on Saturday morn
But then the idea of going to the CrossFit box was born.
Her masters buddy Theresa texted her just in time -
She needed a partner also in her prime!
Burpees are the best!

The WOD notably contained 105 burpees EACH-
Just a bit under the 45 min time cap the pair did reach!
Later on PBun met up with STUR
A Dog's Way Home required tissues for sure
Tissues at the ready!

After the movie the pair hit up Nando’s for some yummy chicken -
Talking about workouts and races is a given!
Sunday morning PBun tried to sleep in
But was up before the alarm. Is that a win?
Headed out to powerlifting class
Got to deadlift with train wheels - what a gas!
200# Train Wheel Deadlift - check!

Once back at home it was time for a run
Just 70 minutes on the treadmill, she got it done!
On Sunday morning- BLUR and STUR met at a very familiar place
Fort Hunt Park to walk and run with Lazlo at a good pace.
STUR with her boy Lazlo!

Three miles was their final tally-
Lazlo was a brave trooper - he really did rally!
BLUR posing with Lazlo!

Later that day STUR really needed some swim therapy-
Masters and 4000 meters was just right - whee!!
A group of rabbits did a KICKR session
It was called the "Castle of Pain" but it was...fun!

Super Snow and Chocolate Rap

On Saturday STUR was stuck inside because of the snow surprise-
But when she arrived at the pool she couldn’t believe her eyes.
She was mostly swimming all by her lonesome-‘
Not the usual “fight for a lane scrum”
Could do butterfly to her heart’s content-
Before she knew it- 3 miles came and went!
Day become almost warm and very bright-
Did some loops at Ft Hunt Park with Lazlo - alright!!
PBun was up super early on Saturday
She needed to get her spin out of the way
PBun also lifted after the chocolate festival festivities!

Then met up with a couple of old friends
They hit up the Chocolate Lover’s Festival – understand?
This pup was SO CUTE and friendly!

First she got to meet a super-cute pup
Her name is Jazz and she gave PBun a hug!
Puppy hugs rock!

There was lots of yummy chocolate stuff for the choosing
Including a fountain where the chocolate was oozing!
This doesn't include the mini scoop of ice cream or the chocolate fountain treats!

After a delicious lunch at the Coyote Grille
Made a pact to do this again if you will
Does she credit these neighbors from back in the day
To her foray into getting fit? Yes way!

Sunday was definitely an outside day-
BLUR and STUR met at Fort Hunt Park once again to play!

The Potomac was frozen but the trail was clear-
Some of the many wooden bridges were dicey- oh dear!
Sunshine and smiles!

BLUR did some running and a spin on her new ride-
Her love of cycling cannot be denied!
What will BLUR's new ride be named?

STUR did her best and knocked out a longish run-
Looks like a marathon taper has just begun!
Sunday PBun got her powerlifting on
She is sure hoping that she’s getting strong!
Rack pull for the win!

Inspired by the ladies on her team
Who are total bad@$$es if you know what she means
Once back home she took a walk outside with Riley
But that was enough time for her sinuses to act up you see
Hit up the treadmill for a 65 minute run
With 7 minutes at marathon pace in the second half of the session
That evening she met up with some friends from her high school days
Dinner then an orchestra performance was all the rave
The St. Olaf College music department is pretty sweet
And Cool-Breeze is an alum, which is neat!
Fun times with old friends!

The conductor thanked us for attending the Super Symphony Sunday
Instead of staying home to watch Superbowl 53
The orchestra was SO GOOD!

Meanwhile CBun and CRab were having lots of adventures in Utah -
The Sundance Film Fest and snow activities had them in awe!
Snow and smiles!
