WEEKEND RECAP: THE HOLIDAY SPEEDO RUN '07

ok, so we're not in Boston, we're in sunny Santa Monica, California, and it's not so cold that this could happen to a man. still though, we stripped down to our bathing suits, braving the throws of fake snowballs from bratty little kids, and ran through the streets (and one mall food court) all to the shock and awe of last minute christmas shoppers. and not just because we're exhibitionists (aren't all triathletes exhibitionists?), but because we care. we care about the kids. and we want them to stay outta trouble by participating in the sport of triathlon. fellow la tri clubber and multi kona age group winner, Cherie Gruenfeld, directs an awesome organization called Exceeding Expectations that has fostered some amazing young triathletes who are showing up and placing well at all level races. in turn, they set a great example for their peers and are excelling in school. you can't argue with that.

AND YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH THIS.......




OR THIS...



OR THIS...



but don't get the wrong idea about us. we're still serious about fitness. at every red light, we stopped for push ups and jumping jacks. i shoulda thought twice about that pint i chugged right before we started.....




and looky looky. i've figured out how to post the flickr slideshow right to the blog:



good times. good times indeed.

oh, and i made a video:
(don't forget to turn the cassette player off up top)




HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS

ha! too funny. i like the peeps that were still wearing their polar chest straps.

good event to ensure you keep the pounds off, not that cali doesn't already encourage that.

you actuallly live in Santa MONICA!
