The night before I put out my clothes and gear for the next morning. We were going to be leaving around 7 I think. I wanted to make sure that I had everything ready for that morning and didn't forget anything.
We made it down to the race site with no problem. It was much much better than the Mardi Gras race trying to get down there. When we got there my cousin and I made a B line for the porta potties. I was lucky enough to get one that rocked from side to side. I kept praying that it would not fall over with me in it! While we were waiting for the potty, my sister-in-law Karen headed toward these people....
That's right. The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders were at the race start. Now, I would never say that Karen is obsessed with them (hehe), but she watches their show and follows them on twitter. So needless to say, she was like a kid in a candy store whenever she saw them. She even got a picture with one of the girls and was smiling the entire race about that one picture.
After I finished using the restroom, I went and watched them dance too. Above (if it works) is a video of them dancing. It was pretty dark, so I'm sorry about the quality of the video.
After we watched them dance we started walking towards our corrals whenever we saw these guys....
We ran through a gorgeous part of the race called Highland Park. There was all these nice, big, beautiful homes there. See behind me in the picture, the waterfall. How would you like to have that across the street from your house?
This guy cracked me up. He was a Justin Beiber wanna be! He was trying to sing like them and everything, but that was not happening, or sounding good at all!
Yummy Salad and Baked Potato that I got! You could make your own salad, potato and they also had soup and dessert there!
Whenever we got there Taylor and Reagan were making something I like to call Goop. It is hard when you don't touch it, but whenever you pick it up it turns watery. I made it whenever I was in school for Education!
And last, but definitely not least....A family picture! I wish my husband could have been there with me, but that is okay. Maybe next time. It was a great race and I loved having family there to be able to spend time with!
I am not sure what half I am going to be running next, but I am interested in a possibly sprint tri. We shall see though. :0)
