Big Day Tomorrow

Our first 10k.  (Oh shit, by saying "our first", I've implied we'll be doing more than one.  Let's not get crazy here.)

Now, don't go getting all impressed.  RCC and I are walking it.  But Nebalee and her crew are running it because they're the insane branch of the family tree.  Running the BolderBoulder has always been Nebalee's birthday thing.  I have no idea where it came from, but she's been doing it for a while.  For some reason, RCC thought it would be a good thing to do this year.  Yep, he's got some crazy running in his family, too.

The BolderBoulder is a Big Deal.  I knew that.  But I didn't really know it until we went to pick up our race packets today.  There will be something like 50,000 people participating.  I don't like crowds of people.  Certainly not enough to want to be with 50,000 of them in a town I despise.  However, it's Nebalee's birthday thing and she promised she'd do my Zombie run for my birthday if I did her birthday run.  Aw crap, if I live through this thing tomorrow, I'll probably do it again next year for her birthday.  Do you see the sacrifices I make for my crazy sister?

If we live through the race tomorrow, we'll head up the hill to bring Queen Estes home!  I miss my girl something fierce and can't wait for her to come home.

Lots of pictures forthcoming, I'm sure!

Everyone have a safe Memorial Day and don't forget why we celebrate it.

Thank you to everyone who has, and is continuing to, serve our country.

Fifty thousand people running down the streets of a city. It sounds like a Japanese horror movie.

Even walking that makes you crazy. But we already knew that, didn't we.

w00t! My sister ran it, as you know. I won't share her time, as she's been a crazy runner for years. And yes, she runs marathons.

If I ever come visit, I have to go see her too as she lives in Denver. If I go see her, I'll have to come up and see you! Yay!

I think I need to make a trip to Colorado. I miss my sissy. :(
