Like any rational first-time-Triple-Crowner, I'm a wee bit nervous about the upcoming Garden of the Gods 10-Miler. So, I thought I'd make a sacrifice to appease the running gods while out in the Garden last night.
Luckily for me, this took place right in front of Tim Bergsten's camera at our PikesPeakSports.us Triple Crown Runners photo night. Not every epic flesh sacrifice (more commonly know as a klutz-induced fall) gets high quality photographic documentation and publication. There is no hiding it, I'm a klutz, now the whole running community has proof.
Yesterday's shindig was (literally) a pain in the rear, but this crazy bunch made it well worth the loss of blood.
One more big "thank you" to Tim Bergstem, Ron Ilgen, Mountain Equipment Recyclers, and Orange Theory Fitness for making this team possible. Jill, Bubba, Shelley, Beagle, Sean, and Brianne, it was awesome meeting you all last night - and lucky for you, you saw me in my natural state (dirty, scratched, and laughing).
