This year for Beach to Bay we had a neighborhood team with our friends! We had the best time, even due to the horrible rain, lightning and thunder that some of us had to run through. The festivities began with a spaghetti dinner on Friday night with 10 adults and 6 kiddos under the age of 3! Needless, to say there were some wild kiddos including a certain Sebring little girl! We ate lots of spaghetti, talked a little strategy and laughed a lot! Then, on Saturday morning, Russ and I woke up to pouring rain and thunder. But we knew this was a rain or shine event (there were 14,000 people running) and we packed up and headed out. Due to the weather, traffic was really bad and I way miscalculated the drop-off times. Russ did the third leg (4.36miles) and I was doing the fourth leg (4.69miles). I dropped him off and parked (not such a good idea) and had a terrible time getting to the hand-off and I was 30 minutes late. Russ ran faster than I thought he would! Poor guy had to stand in the pouring rain, after he had been running for 48 minutes! So when I finally got there, I had no time to stretch, so I just grabbed the baton and took off! Thank goodness for another friends' hat to keep the rain off my face. But with a little praise music, some MJ and a little Lady Gaga I made it to the next hand-off in 55 minutes. Then I had to walk another 2 miles in the rain until Russ found me to pick me up. It was a busy morning, but definitely memorable. The sun finally came out around noon and we headed to Cole Park to have our free pizza and beer. Poor Russ, they ran out of beer by the time we went through the line. I told him next year we had to run faster to get to the good stuff! Well, enjoy the pictures. I will post some more of GA soon. Here Pop-pop took some cute ones last time he came to visit!
