New River Trail pics mostly...

I can hardly type, so this recap is in pics until I can type like a normal person...

My employer sponsored us, so this one is for them!

This is how we really act...

In the ED getting drugs!

My poor pinky 


Day 2

Day 2
So we got a DNF because I tripped on a tree root at mile 4 of the half marathon.  I was well on my way to a sub 2 hour, but it just wasn't my day.

I see the hand surgeon tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get some relief and feel better.  I will say this, to be the smallest finger, it sure does hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll have a real race recap when I can type more than 5 wpm!!

So until then, the hubby will be perfecting his ponytail and wrapping wound skills.  

He still has a long way to go on the ponytail thing...


  1. Oh geesh! That must have been a BAD fall! Ahh! You need to perfect the roll when you fall! Come out here and I will teach you! LOL

    I am sad you had to DNF, you were SO looking forward to this! Knowing you, you made the best of it. Love the pic you sent your mom. LOL!

  2. When you train hard your muscles need proper recovery. Just taking some rest may not be enough. According to nutrition scientists BCAA is one of the key nutritional compounds to help your muscles recover properly. This and lots of other nutritional tips are available at
