|Thunder and lots of wind came with all the wet|
We tried to be optimistic and get ready -
Kasey and I had been checking the radar and we knew the big green dot was almost past...but when we arrived at packet pick up they had tried to setup equipment too soon and it was damaged. Show canceled...we were pretty bummed. However, at packet pick up we chatted with lots of ladies (I took lots of group pics for folks) who had driven from as far as Pennsylvania (4hrs) Lynchburg,VA, and Washington DC and had hotel rooms for a girls over-night out and were decked out in special made glow t-shirts, etc...so we were fortunate we lived just a 30 minute ride away.
We picked up our shirts and took a few pictures by the sign...
|It was still windy, but no rain|
|The yellow straps around our waist are our super glow vests|
|Which looked like this in the dark|
No glow Zumba 30 minute warm up, no DJ, no brewski's at the after party, no face painting, but Kasey was determined and said, "Oh, we are still running!" LOL ツ Gotta love a running buddy who makes me suck it up and work a new plan.
We were dressed and body glided up, right...so we thought about downtown, but there were some shady characters roaming about and it was almost dark, and driving down there stressed me out...so we did the 30 min. ride toward home and ended up running 3.6 miles in a neighborhood by her gym before it got totally dark.
We worked up a sweat so we still earned our bling...
...and enjoyed a late dinner around 9:30 p.m. and a few cocktails :) We did swap out our sweaty tanks for our race t-shirts so at least our shirts were dry for dinner.
I was really looking forward to another a happy glow picture in the black light tent. This one made me smile all last year...
and my hubby left me a mother's day treat I am enjoying as I write this...
|he's working today, but this was the perfect way to make me feel appreciated|
I will review those Noxgear fiber optic light vests we are wearing in a post coming soon :)
No questions today, just leave me any thought that pops to mind :)
