MCM: spectator report & weekend wrap

And October goes out with a bang.
The weekend started with 14+ big ones on a ridiculously gorgeous DC morning...
With my bicycle-got-sucked-into-running-with-me-partner-in-crime.
I picked up the girls and we proceeded directly to the expo.
And the weekend deteriorated pretty rapidly from there.
There was a lot of squealing and hugging and eating and drinking.
And....I mean, I'm not even sure what some of this is, but I'm certain that a good time was had by all.



I know there was a pillow fight...but you'll just have to trust me on that one.  
Getting up to spectate the next morning took some oomph, but we rallied hard to cheer on the marathoners, who lucked out with a pretty perfect day.
I hopped in a few times to run with a few girls on their way to some pretty serious PRs.  Christy is in there...
And I've never had as much fun in a race as I did pacing this pink girl, who took no prisoners and about 30 ridiculous minutes off of her PR.  No one deserved an amazing day more than she did.
The rest will just have to be left up to your imagination.  How was your weekend?  I saw quite a few of you on the course at MCM, and was tracking online!

  3. You know its a good weekend when head butts are involved.

    So glad you all had a great time but so sad I missed it. I think I would have paid PPV prices to watch.

  6. I didn't see you out there, but we were probably overlapping when we jumped in. It was such a gorgeous day for a race.

  8. It was a great final boost having you trot alongside me for a few paces. ROAD RUNNING HURTS!

  9. I must say that the Pink Girl smashed her PR in style. I'm backing the white rimmed sunglasses accessorized with the white sun sleeves. Subtle yet effective.

  10. I yelled your name! But the volume of which things came out of my mouth by that point is questionable.... ;)

    Loved seeing you guys, though!
