2014 Say No To Drugs Holiday Classic (Dec 20)

Tuesday, January 06, 2015

D & I hadn't done this race in a couple of years. This year, Team Hope for the Warriors Tampa would represent so we jumped in!!

Of course Pancakes...


and bling...


is always an added bonus!

So, we lined up with a few of our friends at the Starting Line...



...knowing my old nemesis, the Clearwater Memorial Bridge loomed in the back ground!



Within the first mile, we started the climb...



and climb...



At the top, the view reminded us why we live here!



After this shot, I changed gears, and ran the rest of approximately 2.25 miles, returning over the bridge! I caught up with one of my Warrior Teammates who had her Service Pup, Drake, with her. The three of us crossed the finish line together. THAT was most rewarding and meaningful!

I was able to get to the finish line and catch D coming across with a lady she met on the course!



Running the way I did was smart as I would do this race again the next day....
