FLAT RUTHIE AT THE WARRIOR DASH!

 LIKE A 5-K... THROUGH NO-MAN'S LAND!!


The Warrior Dash was absolutely awesome! I wish that I could have ran and seen how badly out-of-condition I was, since I did not know I was going to be in attendance.  The reason that I say that I would have discovered how out of far out of rounds I am.  But the way that I work, the energy present in Louisville, NE would have had me stoked, as it was I was chompin' at the bit!!


Ruthie made friends rather quickly.  Here she is at the Anytime Fitness booth, of which I am a proud member of.  These two operate a total of 15 franchises between them and are as fit as their costumes would imply!




 These were a group of racers that recognized Flat Ruthie as a relative of Flat Charley and were more than happy to take a picture with her.  Sorry that she is barely visible, but there she is, being held by "Michael Phleps"!






















There were plenty of folks there with an lighthearted attitude!  This young lady went out as a ballerina!!





This stud went dressed in a suit and I imagine that he had more than a few ladies swooning!


This is what the Smith-Hayes contingent looked like BEFORE their run!!


And this is what they looked like AFTER!!



I was so proud of Nebraska and her pal Jen (who rode with us).  It was a tough course but they had it in them to finish!  Ruthie was in the bag, as there was enough mud between us to slap together a statue!  
















Ruthie and I are going to lay low this weekend.  Maybe if Miss Maybe comes around, we can hang out a little.  Of course, next weekend KT is going to be here, so between work and her being here, things will be hectic around Chez Marquis!!  Besides, we had enough fun at the Run to last for a couple of more days.  Shoot, it took me until today to find my legs after all the fun from last week!!

Good to see you out and about in the presence of other people. But why do you suppose people in Nebraska find it necessary to muck about in a hog wallow?

What a fun place to take Flat Ruthie to, Mark! It does look like a neat thing to participate in! Enjoy the weekend!

This looks really fun!

I started jogging/running in january and so far I have participated in two 5K runs in the last month.

My first time was 28 mins and the one I ran last week I got a 26 mins.

My next goal is to go down to 24 mins.
Any advice for me?
Thanks!
