So much running & racing today. This is the first time I've ever been a part of two races in less than 12 hours apart! I have lots to share so let's get busy. :) ***Warning: Oodles of pictures....
Run Or Dye
At 5:30 this morning my alarm went off and I wished Matt luck as he headed out the door for his Leg (#1) in the Rum Runner's Relay, which was beginning at 6:30 a.m. I got up and had an Eggo waffle with coffee. Then at 5:50 in comes Courteney! I wasn't quite ready but we were out the door at 6:09 :D
We headed to Windsor where the event was being hosted at Ski Martock. Check out this scene:

|Us at the start line. We thought we were so cool with ALL this dye on us. |
Little did we know, this was nothing!
All done and had to get an 'after shot!' hehe.
Not timed, but super fun. :D
If Run or Dye comes to a town near you, you HAVE to do it! I mean who doesn't love paying $20 bucks to run through the woods bright and early while people hurl handfuls of stuff at you!?!? ;) Do it!
I high-tailed it to the shower upon arriving home and prepped for my next run of the day....Leg #8 at Rum Runner's! This leg is a beast. So hilly and boy did it get warm this afternoon when it was my turn to run. :0
Matt and Lola made for an awesome cheering squad and they even snapped some pics along the way. :) It was super cute to see Lola's shaggy head hanging out the window of the vehicle and Matt shouting, "Go Mommy!" LOL
|My speedy friend Erin who did the run in less than |
50 minutes!? How does one even move their legs
fast enough to accomplish this!?!?

Yay to double race days! Now if you need me for the remainder of the weekend, I'll be passed out on the couch. :D Except early tomorrow morning: I have my final 20 miler to do!
Thanks for poppin' in and checkin' out GGR!
