now who's the evil one...

so i'm looking at my running room weekly update yesterday and reading about all of the runs coming up and notice the Beaches Spring Sprint is THIS weekend. CRAPTASTIC! John and I actually wanted to run that one this year. Personally, I wanted to run it because all of the fit yuppies in the beach run it and i was NEVER one of those people growing up. Plus, it's real purdy running down on the boardwalk and the beach(es) area is hella pretty itself. It's only a 5km but it's the whole going back to my roots and doing something I could never do before, ya know? So I was a little bummed to read that we were going to miss our chance. I thought it was going to be in another couple of weeks and we still had time. I sent jeepers off an e-mail telling him about it just in case there was a faint glimmer of hope, as you could STILL register on race day...looks like he's got his regular slate of social events for friday. boourns. But then suddenly (well, not suddenly. I may have sent him an e-mail saying I run 6km four times a week, the race is after 9a.m. and he was a wuss. I'm a great big sister, eh?), he sent a note back saying he'd gone out the night before his runs in the past and he wanted to go to the beaches anyway, all I had to do was wake his drunk-over ass up. I personally think he's doing it just for me :) WERRRRRRRRK! Again, I have the most supportive and lovely brothers in this world. Just saying :P

Ah, your brother is such a sweety pie, and what a trooper for doing it after a night o' partying!

I hope you guys do fabulous and stick it to the yuppies!

Yeah!!!!!! You get to do your run, your brother is super...my sibling would laugh in my face. Our 10k clinic is always running 5k beacuse we do a hell of a lot of looping that brings us to 6k for the faster runners and 5k for the slower, our leader is really strict on not over doing it
