Who you calling trashy?

Sunday was the first event for our summer team...we had 10 team members participating in the Heels and Hills HALF marathon. Overall there were 150 TNT participants from the surrounding areas. Jessica, Robin and I decided not to run the event but instead go out to support all the runners and walkers.

We met at 6:30am at a grocery store...and as we were all loading into my car it started to rain...not a good sign for race day. I quickly went into the store and bought a pack of trash bags. Yes, large black trash bags...they are a runner's saving grace on race day when its cold or raining. You'd be suprised at how warm they keep you and obviously will keep you dry. Plus they are completely disposable unlike a $50 running jacket you don't want to toss or ruin.

And come to find out they work really well for supporters too as seen above! The only negative about the trash couldn't see our TEAM IN TRAINING shirts.

On a more serious note...CONGRATULATIONS to all the runners/walkers who completed Sunday's event. It was definitely not an easy morning. The event was stopped several times and participants had to take cover due to the rain and storms. Our TNT participants in Oklahoma City at the OK City Memorial full and half marathon endured the same hats off to them as well. We are very proud of each of you!

Train Endure Achieve Matter!
