Survived! (Barely.)

Well, we somehow survived Bloomsday. We ended up skipping the starting line chaos, and jumped in at Browne's Addition instead (such a great call)... We managed to stay together, the weather was perfect - slightly overcast and cool - and a sort-of fun time was had by all. I am now realizing how out of shape i am, as i am super sore already, but at least we got some decent pics along the way!

Behold the super-incredible rat tail we saw:

Lavs and I with the famous Bloomsday Buzzard atop Doomsday Hill:

almost to Doomsday:

All of us pausing as we neared the finish line to get one last picture (not sure why Peeps is making that face):

it was fun, thanks for making me go and putting up with my complaining. I loved walking with you (and P when she wasn't showing us up by forging ahead). I was super sore yesterday and had to take a LONG nap, but am pretty good today. Now we don't have to do this again for 10 years right? Or until Pooh and Cara come home???

I think I'm making that face because I'm trying really hard not to fall while walking backwards. Hard to say though...

Good work girls! That's quite the walk!

Atta girl...next year just run it, it will get over a lot quicker. That's the only reason I run, just to get exercise over with.
