Snacks were packed.
Finished Hunger Games, book 3. (By the way, I kinda hated the third book — but at least I’m done. success.)
5:00AM – Alarm goes off. What am I thinking!?! It’s freaking Saaaaaturday!
Grabbed my bags, iced coffee and I was off.
The car ride started with this song:
And then I knew, it’s going to be a good day. Love, love Norah.
Once I got to the race, I grabbed my teams race packets.
Finished my breakfast.
And put my number on my shirt.
And tried to imagine it being 20 degrees warmer. Brrr!
Team “Beat” finally arrived: Sam, Ryan, Baker and Philip.
I spotted this dude a mile away and NEEDED a picture with him.
GO TEAM BEAT!!
Baker didn’t get the St. Patricks (GREEN) memo… He thought it was valentines day. Understandable.
Yay. BOLC girls. WOO.
Team Beat insignia.
The run was a 5K. We were in it to win it. We started at the “competitor” start line and maintained a strong pace. But geez, this run was hard! The obstacles were not joke! Push ups, crawling through tunnels, sit ups, push press, box jumps, running through sand. You get it? It was definitely a good work out for only being 3ish miles.
And… the after picture. Got MUD!?!?!
More BOLC girls! (I already look clean in some of these pictures because we finished before Team Meat and had time to get rinsed off. I was muddy, I swear.)
And here’s the gang… Team Beat & Team Meat. And yes, that was planned.
The post race party was amazing. We almost left right after the race but decided to stick around to see if we won any prizes (which we didn’t).
Breakfast burritos at a race? What!?!
Yogurt and granola? Now you’re speaking my language!
The race was really well organized, fun, warm enough (afterwards) and a great event.
Everyone had a great time. Tucson, you’ve yet to fail me. This time was no exception.
After we left the race, pool time. This pool was like bath water. And I’m kinda sun burnt now, oops.
Lunch at In-N-Out: Double-Double, animal & protein style. It never gets old.
And purchased a ticket for tonights pub crawl.
Quite possibly the best St. Patricks day ever — so far.
And now for the green beer!
Happy GREEN day!
