Yesterday my alarm didn't go off and I missed P90X Yoga. Dammit. The rest of the gang somehow managed to do it without me. When I finally dragged my lazy butt out of bed I discovered, after a week of P90X and the elimination diet, I gained a pound. Isn't that nice. My energy level is up. I'm feeling great. I have to do the wiggle dance to get into my pants and suck it in to button em'. Listen here body....we are NOT going to gain any more weight. Capiche?
**Drum Roll Please**
The Bitchy Runners Eulogy Part 2 - Then We Raced
Originally we were planning to do a race per month in 2011. We almost succeeded.
Jiggle Butt Run - 5K
|This was a fun women's only race where we wore camo and tutus.|
|We won first place for the largest..in numbers not butt size...team. WOAD...Weapons of Ass Destruction.|
|This was a fun race day. We started with coffee. I ran even slower than usual due to a hamstring injury. We finished with massages and then greasy hamburgers and fries.|
|Our first start line self portrait...a tradition was born.|
|We decided we were cool enough for compression socks.|
|Randee's first half and my half PR.|
|So. Much. Fun.|
|Entertaining ourselves while waiting in line for the port-a-potties turned out to be the highlight of this race.|
|This race was all kinds of horrible. The path is BORING. Oh yes, and there was rain and a shortened distance due to severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings. Good times.|
|The sad thing is there website is no longer working. I'm thinking they may not do the race in 2012. I'll have to find us another Mother's Day race to continue the tradition.|
|Three out of four of us were very hung over in this picture. It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure out which one of us didn't party it up the night before.|
July was the Too Hot to Handle 15K. And dang if it wasn't hot.
|We all about died 189 times, but the ice cold rags at the finish were nice.|
September we did the Heels, Hills and Him Half Marathon.
|I hate when I look so much cuter than Randee on race day. This day she was in rare form and I about kicked her butt out of the car before we even parked. Lucky for her I found my inner happy place and put up with her for 13.1 miles.|
|We won the Chicago Marathon. Well maybe not won...but close. We finished.|
|I loved the race. I loved the long weekend we spent there. I loved the company I went with. I just all around loved it. Heck, I even enjoyed Randee.|
|It was hot. We were sad. Our first race with just the two of us in over a year.|
|This race had it all. Rain. Freezing temps. 26.2 miles. What else could a girl ask for in a race to finish out such a fantastic year?|
|At least the medal is super awesome.|
|Brittany + Angie + Randee + Talia = One Hell of a Good Time!|
