Man, what I wouldn't give for better pictures from this event.
Holly and I ran in a "Down and Dirty Mud Run" on Sunday. I won't lie, I was secretly a little apprehensive about it. I really don't like to be dirty. It's the girl in me. But. I couldn't turn up a fun race with my fitness buddy.
Let me tell you one of the many reasons why I like Holly.
Our t-shirts.
It's been a long time since I made t-shirts for anything. I would guess the last time I made a t-shirt or costume of any sort was in college on the AZD hall. Holly said we needed to make t-shirts and came up with a few theme names for them. Her favorite and mine was "Victorious Secret." Get it??
Victorious we were. We finished 12th(Holly) and 13th(Me) out of 144 other women in our age range. I guess that means we're fast for our age... whoohoo! Too bad when I was looking at the race results, I kept searching the 18- 24 year old range. I kept searching for my name, perplexed as to where it was. Then it hit me. I am 26.
I promise we don't look half as dirty as we actually were. There was dirt coming out of my ears after I had gotten home and showered. We had the very best time. Holly is the kind of girl who will kill a box of munchkins with you before running a race where walking isn't a part of her equation. Holly is also walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk for a cure for breast cancer.That is 60 miles in 3 days! Do you think you'll still be up for Monday Runday Hols? ;)
Hope everyone is having a good week!
