And S had a seat at the command center and took a break from photographing stuff.
Meg said the run was muddy - very, very muddy. She said the only way through the path was sometimes through some seriously thick mud - there had been several runners before her, of course. She said it added about five pounds of mud to each shoe as she went along, which made for some unpleasant moments, but all in all she felt it was a fine course and a decent grade.
Before Meg was expected back, Kellie and I walked up before the end of the run just a little ways so we could meet Meg and run with her the last bit, finishing together. About 40 minutes later, there was Meg!
But when it came time for my medal...
You see folks, we had a case of three contributing factors - I have a big head and a lot of hair. That's probably the biggest factor. And, I was wearing glasses. And, I had on that hat.
After we turned in our timing chip, there was a opportunity to take our photos in front of a TREK Women's Triathlon banner.
As far as the contest goes, we did not break any land speed records - we were the last relay team to finish. But, as S points out, 8/8 equals 1. He's so supportive, I love that. And, we were overall only 42 people from being dead last. We were slow. But, we didn't plan to be fast. We planned to just finish. To just move our butts, get them in gear and accomplish something small like crossing the finish line. And we did that. We had a great time - a blast - and we finished. And, I think for that, my Uncle Kenny owes the charity of my choice a $20, doesn't he? Get it ready, Uncle Kenny, get it ready.
After that, we cleaned up and then we went to EAT. Then we drove back to Dallas. I'll tell you all about the food tomorrow. It deserves it's own post, yes? See you then.
