Keelin the Wolverine!

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Yes Friends...

It is true. I have been hiding something from you for quite some time. I, Keelinover, am actually Hugh Jackman aka "Wolverine". Ok... now that that is out on the table. Ha!

I ran a 13.1 mile race this morning in the snow. Mile one....hadn't started snowing yet...numb feet and fingers. Mile two... snow started. Mile three... fingers and toes back to normal (thank God). Miles 4-6...got pretty chatty with other runners (always fun). Ooooh. Forgot to mention that my super AWESOME Father was out in the inclement weather to cheer me on. I love him so much!

Mile 6.something.... I made it to the turn around point. Around miles 7-8...water and gatorade stops turned into slurpee with the snow (how cool is that?). After mile 8... my eye lashes started to freeze together and I was actively wiping ice/snow from my brows and face. I met some awesome people in the latter miles and we cheered each other on. At the finish... I got to use my favorite "Rocky Balboa" arms in the air and yelling! That never gets old. I was so happy to be finished. Now for the fun part.

My Father took this picture of me at the finish. Literally every part of my face was caked in snow. I have some peach fuzz around my jaw bone and snow was even stuck there. I swear to you Spark Friends.... I looked just like the Wolverine! Very Scary.
