Happy Birthday Sarah!

 Sarah's birthday fun included a roller coaster ride, a hidden geo cache, a trip to the moon, and watching a 1949 classic movie "The Heiress" in an old timey movie theater.  Happy birthday sister,  how I love you so.

Gregorys Under the River Kwai

Things that made me worried on the morning of the race:

- I forgot to pack underwear
- I've never run more than 3 miles in a row, ever.
- I had to steal socks out of Lucy's drawer. I was literally wearing school uniform socks.
- Most of the other teams had matching spandex outfits. Chris was wearing his swim trunks.
- Apparently Chris and I qualify for the Masters category, but I had signed us up in the regular category out of pride.
- At one point before the race started, I looked down at the gears on my bike and couldn't remember whether higher was better for uphill, or lower.....?

We had some bets with our friends, Jonny and Nicole. You got points for:
- first blood (Chris won, within about 10 minutes)
- first couple's fight (a tie. Both of us mad at our husbands at the same point in the cycling leg)
- first serious swear word (I think I might have won this. I don't want to tell you what I said.)
- overall winners (they beat us by about 10 minutes)

Overall, it was extremely hard and extremely fun. Of the people on this poster, I think I most resembled the swimming girl:

Remember this?

I was remembering this situation because of Darcy's graduation coming up and pulled out the article to show my kids. I wondered if it ever made it onto Woodpile.. for memories sake...
