Our rainy Saturday training ;)

Saturday, February 18, 2012

So Neal (PositiveOne), Teresa (Oldschooler), Leslie (LMTorres), and I turned up at McAlister Park for our training for the San Antonio 1/2 Sparkathon (13.1 miles). Not only did we brave the weather, low water crossings, and craziness BUT we actually played rescuers! There was also a 5k to support those who are victims of domestic violence and due to the rain (about 1" per hour btw) the parking areas were total mud! This one poor truck with two girls in it was fairly hopelessly stuck. So we helped push her out of the mud! SA POWER! ;) I would have said GIRL POWER but Neal was a big part of that rescue so can't just put it all on the girls. ;) We got in about 2.15 miles in the rain and ick. Proud of all of us who made it out. Way to go SA Spark! :)

    That is so cool!! SP is not big in my area, and I'm jealous of the Spark users who are able to meet up and workout together!

    I know where you're coming from. My bike ride in La Vernia was quite challenging with the rain and wind.

    Thanks all. :) BOY am I feeling pushing the truck out of the mud today! I even went to bed early because I was feeling so sore last night. :P We did a good deed and that makes the pain worth it.

    You guys are awesome! I admit, I chickened out since it was hailing at my house about the time I should have headed out!

    Proud of you all for showing. I won't be around since I started working for Home Depot and my weekends belong to them emoticon

    Would so love to be out there with you all!

    I'm with TaMara, yay for our brave SA members who both braved the elements AND were heroes to those poor stranded folks! I'm a little bummed because I haven't met Leslie yet, but I'm sure we will do that next week! So very proud of you guys!
