Gonna Be Awesome?
God Bless America?
Great Big Attitude?
Galactically Bad A**.
There’s only one GBA.
And that’s why this morning T & I put our run off for over an hour so we
could go run 8 miles with 3L, WineNotWhine, Kristiß needs a bloggy name, KC and Dot in
the middle of their 20 miler.
See, there was NO WAY I was missing 3L’s first 20
miler.No. freaking. Way.
But I’ve been running a low grade fever off and on for a few
days, so I really had to run on Sunday of this week in the hopes that the fever
completely breaks by the time it’s Sunday Funday Runday.
Thus, no 20 on Saturday with Team Purple.
Thus, the AMBUSH.
we didn't plan it, but we're both wearing our Skull socks.
T & I didn’t even tell them we were coming.We just showedup at a mid point on the route, parked our JEEP, and waited at the Grove SAG with SpeeDee & THE MAN until we started seeing runners.
We chatted with THE MAN, cheered for the runners, called out Coach Black, got Shh'd by THE MAN, and in general, spent our 10 minutes waiting being cute. MTTographer snapped a photo of our hotness whilst we waited. How fabulous are we?
We saw The Posse coming from up the street and jumped in behind the MTTographer waving our arms & cheering (softly, as not to disturb the sleeping city of Richmond... ahem).
I know just the moment 3L saw us, and guess
what?MTTographer caught it on
KC, WNW, Dot (2nd row), Kristi & 3L
Today I ran 8 miles- a few at MRP, and it felt easy. And while that was great, it was the time spent with my favorite Posse that made today so perfect.
Today made me realize that sometimes doing something nice for someone is as easy as going for a run.
~Savor the Run~
And for the most part, the fever is gone, the exhaustion is
waning, and I think if I get a good night’s sleep tonight that I should be able
to tackle my 20 tomorrow. IT’s the big
2.0. And really, what kind of sicko am I
that I can’t wait?
