That's the truest thing I can say about marathoning. Ever. Recap coming, I promise, but here are some high points from the weekend on film. (also, I ran into some formatting issues with Blogger - it doesn't want to play nice).
|Neon Coaches with Q|
|Sprint Mint ... which fit into the Scooby Doo inspired|
|Q was hazed by one of my favorites ("Nutty")|
with the gift of a "new" pair of running shorts
constructed from the NEON flag.
|post shake out run Pixies|
|Friday we met the Posse for bagels|
Karasmatic, WnW & Kristi
|Back Row - Southern Comfort, WnW, 3L, T, DeNiece, Pixie|
Front Row - Kristi, Karasmatic, me, Cozy KC
At the pre-race bagel carb up we connected with pretty much the entire posse. On Saturday morning I saw every single one of these women on the course at some point. One in the corral before her EPIC BQ run, several on the course as we connected for a few miles here and there. I never imagined on Friday how much these women would mean to me on race day. I know... silly silly me. Marathoning brings out the very best in people... and these women are already beyond wonderful.
|K.C., T & Pixie Green|
|wine-not-whine is GBA.|
|Birch is ... well, it was warm at the expo.|
|Me, Pixie & T|

Life Began at 30 - Pam
Pace of Me - Jess
Racing with Babes - TMB
Long Legs on the Loose - Kayte
and we connected with quite a few locals

And then with a full tummy, Pixie and I went back to the hotel for a pillow fight... for sure that's what happens when two bloggers as HOTT as us share a hotel room, right?
There's a lot more to this weekend, and EVERY ONE of the women in the photos here had a galactic day, and so that, made it a GREAT day....
