Six Sweaty Chicks do it again!

6/11/2011
I participated in the Sawtooth Relay for the second year in a row with the most awesome all girl team ever!! Can I get a woot woot? I sure do love you gals! We improved our time and had such a blast again. The goal this year was to beat the hot banana girls (once we saw how fast and in shape they were). My goal on my second leg was to beat the girl in orange with the polka-dot socks because their team looked all too prissy to be running - so no worries, I gladly passed her! Yabba dabba do!! Linda of course had no problem passing the hot banana girl going up the Galena summit. She is such a rock star.

And our (Rachel's) van was pretty much 10X more awesome this year once we picked up the paint stick thing a ma jig from the store in Stanley.

We came in 24th out of 85 teams in the women's open! Great job to all my girls - they all ran so damn fast!!



 Deb was our first runner starting at 4:45am - she rocked it!
 Jill was numero dos - she always kicks butt!
  These two sisters are too cute - Rachel and Deb

 Rachel running - she can not only run fast, but she is the only person I know that can do a cheer leading style jump while running. : )
 Miriam says, "Gotta get a drink! Me hot; me tired!" Great job Miriam - you rocked it as always!




 I finally got my free beer this year at the after party in the park - yes!! I didn't get any beer last year because I left my ID in my car :-( Boy, did it taste good this year!

 We just had to get one of us standing behind Linda as she ran up the summit!

The Graduates

My little brother Tom and my oldest nephew Randy just graduated from high school this summer. Congrats boys. Job well done! They are both off to college in August. Tom is headed to Montreal, Canada and Randy is headed to Twin Falls, Idaho. They are both very nice young men and I am so proud. Love you both!
