How could I resist a chance to “for fun” run with these ladies? For Gretchen’s birthday, we all coordinated to wear our new Pink Runner Girl tanks (okay technically I borrowed one, mine hasn’t arrive yet) and would use the after part as a way to celebrate our friend!
As a Knoxville Track Club official race, I knew a lot of people there – including my team the KTC socialites. Running in a field, in the summer, at 6PM? Yeah, so who’s surprised I felt miserable during this race?
Overall – 110/183
I felt nauseous most of the race and for a while afterward, making it a good thing I missed the big ole wheel races some of the girls had! I even felt too bad to enjoy the free BBQ and beer served post race.
I finally drank a coke and ate enough to get my stomach back to brave the giant trampoline. I’m a skeerdy cat by nature, so I found myself landing on my butt before finally giving up.
As dark started to fall, we pitched our tents, lit a fire, and enjoyed hanging out acting goofy.
The early birds of the group (I’m glaring at my tent mate Christal) woke the rest of us up fairly early. Some packed up and headed home, while others decided we were up for another big adventure. This was my first trip to the top of House Mountain, but I hope to take Jay back to enjoy the view.
Someone smack me if I mention racing again, ‘kay?
