I curse all of those vampire/teenager/knee-sock wearing/afro-wig donning crazies who finished so far ahead of us. *shaking fist*

Cheers to new friends and new adventures!

Very cool! Sounds like you had a great time and you did it! Way to go. I have been trying to run, but I can only make it about 2 miles and that is a run/walk combo on a treadmill, so there is no way I could do something like the scramble you just finished.

Fall time is the best time of the year. The weather can be oh so nice. Good job on the finshing the course. It was a rough race course. To keep going the whole way was just super. I am glad you had a good time.

Navigating the waters of new friendship, once you have a family, is really tricky. I am just starting to emerge from the "new family cocoon" that has been in place since we had Rowan and trying to get to know a few moms in my area.
What can I say about the scramble, but HOLY SHIT and good for you!

Excellent all around! New friends are awesome. I talked to my new mom friend on the phone a couple of day ago and Marcus said I was grinning like I had just been on a really good date. Friends are so, so important.
Congrats on finishing the Scramble! I would have turned around at the second sign, just so ya know, but I'm kind of a weenie.

Awesome work Bree! Trail running is definitely slower and muddier than road running eh? I love it though and find it way less stressful on joints, way less likely to lead to shin splints.....although way more likely to lead to twists because of all those roots and narrow downhill trails. We did a 12K trail race last weekend. On raod 12K would take me less than an hour. On the super steep trail system for this race? I won in the women's category! In 1 hour, 23 minutes! So yeah...slllooowwweeerr for everyone involved.

Hell Yeah! You go girl! I ran my second 5k (ok more like walked, but the first one I ran and thought I was going to die) on Thanksgiving morning, and it was awesome. You should give yourself a pat on the back!!!
