Our Thursday was a challenge with some of the warmest heat indexes we have had so far, and zero wind to cool us down. But other than a few flushed faces, we were all none the worse. In fact, a dozen or so belted out 5 miles with no worries!
But first things first! Tonight we had a few newcomers. Pictured below are Marco, who also ran with us last Tuesday, Sonya, who has trained with us for a couple of weeks and I had the pleasure of running with tonight, Molly and Gladys who ran with us for the first time tonight, and Austin who came with his Aunt Cassy. It's great to have each of you running and training with us!! :-)
The weekly passing of the bunny slippers went from Angie to Mike. While in Emily's care, the bunnies had a batchelorette party and even had the remnants of a vodka bottle in their box! Those naughty bunnies!
Mike was awarded the coveted hare foot-ware for his expertise in coaching. Mike joined the RunnersWorld team just this summer, and has been a great asset to our group!
Joye had a birthday today.... 39 was it?
The rules clearly stated by Coach Kathy are that if you have a birthday, ya gotta bring CAKE! Joye did better than that and brought CUPCAKES!
Could be why so many runners made such good time on their runs tonight.
60 runners, 48 cupcakes.
Made me wanna run fast!
Gosh, that cupcake never had a chance!!
Tatur Dave had more than his share or cup cakes tonight! Maybe we have discovered what his rocket fuel is.
Dana says "No.
No cupcakes for me!
I'll stick with my water!"
Bobby ran 5 miles tonight and must have sweat a few pounds off. Long steady running pays off.
Looking lean and trim,
Bobby took care of a couple cupcakes himself.
Brian does double duty tonight, leading the group of faster runners, and working the counter at the store.
He does an awesome job! Hope all this praise doesn't give him the "big head!"
Finally, this blogger gets to have all the fun, what with tweaking pictures and razzing his friends. But much to my disapproval, I am forced to post this pic. Despite Brian accusing me of not making the restroom in time, actually, I just sweat a lot!
