A few weeks ago someone brought up the idea of a TVR holiday party. Since my kids and lack of a babysitter often prevent me from participating in evening social events, we decided to just increase the fun factor (i.e., beer factor) of our normal Friday team /var/run lunches.
And then it dawned on me that dammit, we should be running as a part of this party, right?
That morning, I took a last spin (for awhile) on my bike
and considered run outfit options.
Not a Santa hat in sight, and deciding I needed something a little different that lit up, I went with a silly hat Sophie got from her aunt and uncle.
I would’ve felt way less dumb had I actually told my running partners to dress up as well. Then again, RC Josh is always festive looking.
We had plans for a nice and easy loop through town that started and ended at the bar (our home for next five hours).
Someone noticed the bridge was down (this bridge), or better said, the pathway for snowmobilers was open. Before I knew it, we were running across and undoubtedly breaking the law.
Well, we didn’t get yelled at, arrested, or stuck. And I guess I can cross “run underneath the lift bridge” off my running bucket list.
Post-run lunch from Rodeo Mexican Kitchen, of course. Veggie bowls taste even better after running.
Larry made an appearance, wrapped in his Oiselle stripey sari.
And there were gifts!
And socks. The best part of these socks is that they say “Scully” on the bottom. Josh doesn’t know this but I was a pretty hardcore X-Files fan back in the day. Perfect gift.
Also loved this book from Nancy, who swears she’s not trying to tell me something. 😉
Danno joined and eventually G, making our TVR holiday bash complete.
All in all, a great way to celebrate the 2013 year. It was a great year for running, friends, and food. And the runstreak lives on!
