|We look great BEFORE the race!|
While Katie and Leigh went off to pee, I hung out with my awesome friend, Mark (Leigh's husband).
Within seconds, Kool and the Gang starts playing....
..... and when that happens, it matters not where I am or what I am doing - Sharpie will DANCE!
|Shake it, Sister!|
There were a few out & back sections amid the course - every time I saw Katie or Leigh we always screamed and slapped hands.
What do you get when you combine record breaking heat + lack of aid stations?
Mile 9 began the meltdown and my long, slow death...
Mark took shade on a lounge chair, after he went out to breakfast ("Hey, I knew I had like an hour - I was gettin' a breakfast burrito!"). He had my phone so he could get some shots of the crew.
Mark later told us he was really bored waiting for us to run by.
Get a load of this shit!
|Is this your foot?|
|check out this handsome mug!|
|How about this?|
|Oh, I got more for ya!|
|"How ya like me now?"|
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd..... let's start to get even more candid with that camera!
Is that your CROTCH?
Indeed it is. Nice, Mark!
Finally Carole goes by at a snails pace. I would have cried but I was too tired. It was 105 degrees when this was taken. I don't miss East Coast humidity by any stretch of the imagination....but let me tell you, 105 in dry heat, sun baking you because you're so high up (altitude) - it is NO picnic.
I later asked Leigh and Katie if they saw the unicorn at Mile 11.
Leigh was over it. She walked over to Mark, during the race, and stood to talk to him for 5 minutes while she bitched about being in this desert inferno.
Finally all 3 girls finished. STUD little pixie Katie WON the 40-49 age category! Yeah, Katie!!!!
And, we must have a shot of the wonder couple: Mark & Leigh. They are my Boulder Family and I'm so lucky to have them both.
Congrats Katie and Leigh making it through a killer day. As usual, you both make everything better.
I AM STILL DEHYDRATED!!!!!
....................But you've got to finish the day right! GOOD FOOD!!!!
