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.
