let me start over.
Last week I was supposed to attend an RRRC Banquet. I kind of wanted to go.
I have volunteered about 30 hours with the club in the last year. I know 150 or more members off the top of my head. The Out Going Prez is a close friend. I should have gone.
And not only that, I write for the magazine.
There's a scene in When Harry Met Sally where Carrie Fisher unknowingly quotes the character played by Bruno Kirby back to himself. It's a great moment where he says, "I wrote that!" Well, I have had a very eerily similar thing happen to me. So I thought, I might like to go to that RRRC event and rub elbows with the people who read the magazine I write for.... narcissistic? maybe.

One day I will tell you all about it. But not today.
I was feeling a little sad actually. Until my DeeR friend msg'd me and asked me to be her date at her Triathlete function the same night.
Fate stepped in, and I pretty much said, "HELLZ YEAH".
I had no dress, but no worries, because I belong to a group of women called, "sisterhood of the traveling dresses". SpeeDee hooked me up, and I was off to the Richmond Tri Club Bash.
The evening started with a cocktail with SpeeDee & BOB, her awesome H at The Jefferson Hotel. I love BOB. He deserves a million kisses for his behavior on Saturday. But they're going to have to come from SpeeDee, cos I don't kiss other people's H's, red shirt or not.
Then I went on and met DeeR at the dinner, which was hilarious because I walked around introducing myself all night as "DeeR's date, BRAD".

I love this photo.
It's ok, I visited with the silent auction items & stuff. I met a lot of people I spent the summer body marking and removing chips from, and you know what's funny? Quite a few people remembered me from all that nonsense & giggling.
I had a wonderful evening. So much that I got a lot of pressure from the Hot Triathletes to join them at a race this summer. And I most certainly WILL be there...
Body Marking hot Triathletes is one of my favorite contact body sports.
