I talked my co-worker into doing it with me. You remember her, the co-star of the Best Race Photo EVER.
I'm amused that it looks like she's wearing a Santa hat when in reality it was the person standing behind her.
When a former TNT teammate asks us to help her out, we show up in full force....
in Santa hats and crazy socks. LOVE these people!
After the race, I quickly headed home, shed a few layers (I was way overdressed...you'd think I had never raced in the winter before!) and grabbed The Pilot. I drug him around our neighborhood for about 3.5 miles. His knees don't take kindly to much running so I ditched him at the house (love you, Pilot) and headed back out on my own in order to finish up my 8 miles for the day.
It was such a fun morning and a great way to break up what could have been a pretty boring 8 miles. No land speed records but that certainly wasn't the goal. My ultimate goal for the day was to support a friend while not bailing on my intended 8 miles. Success!
