A Real Fun Run

This morning I ran a fun run! Bobbi invited me to join her and her running buddies for a replay of last week’s 15K in Loma Linda. The girls didn’t run the actual race for various reasons, but still wanted to do their own race!

Bobbi and Loma Linda are about an hour away from me so I took some fuel for the journey.

About an hour and $5.00 in tolls later (wlEmoticon sadsmile6 A Real Fun Run) I met up with the girls to start our own 15K!

Everyone was so festive too! Bobbi was dressed up and lent me a pair of antlers for some fun pictures.IMG 5003 thumb A Real Fun Run

She even made us numbers! All we needed to make this more official was a water stop. IMG 5002 thumb1 A Real Fun Run

Oh wait, we totally had that too! Jackie’s husband met us half way and provided water and gels! IMG 5004 thumb A Real Fun Run

Okay maybe it wasn’t completely legit since we got lost about 4 times. Seriously. IMG 5006 thumb A Real Fun Run

We kept saying, “Good thing this isn’t a real race!” as we were getting lost and stopping to look at the map.

But we made it and finished our first festive 15K nine miler. Technically a 15K is 9.3, but my Garmin only got to 9.2.

What do you do after a fun unofficial race?

Go out to breakfast of course. Or brunch as the case may be wlEmoticon smile18 A Real Fun Run

We all decided to celebrate our victorious 1, 2, 3 and 4th places in the first annual Holiday 9 Miler at a local breakfast / lunch joint – Martha Greens.

I got a veggie omelet with fruit and toast.  I was really craving a veggie burger, but didn’t see one on the menu though – which I find super weird. IMG 5009 thumb A Real Fun Run

I Since I was kind of in a “sandwich biting” kinda mood I made an egg sandwich with mytoast and eggs.IMG 5011 thumb A Real Fun Run

Is it sad that the bathrooms at Martha Greens are marked with a hen and a rooster – and I had to take a second to think which one was the “girl” restroom? IMG 5012 thumb A Real Fun Run

I think we can all agree on this:

    How fun! You all are too cute.
    I hate when restaurants mark their restrooms like that. Sometimes it takes me a minute to figure out which is which.

    What a fun thing you and your friends did by racing together, I love the idea! Now I need some adventurous friends who like to exercise like me :-) Anyone around Raleigh/Cary in NC? :-)

    This is seriously a great idea! I LOVE the matching socks. How fun is that?!

    I still haven’t found a group of friends who like running since my move, but I do want to do a matching outfit race at some point this next year. ;) haha Guys don’t ever do stuff like that!
