WWR: We Freak’n Rocked That Race!!!

Where do I even start?  We were originally 12 strangers, then we got crammed into two vans and by the end were all the best of friends.  Who could have asked for a better weekend?  Since on top of that, we all got to RUN LOTS OF MILES annnnddd…do it in COLORADO?!?!?!

So, a little picture recap…since I’m exhausted as I was fighting a huge ant colony that infested my blasted car…but before I get on with that, make sure you check out my guest posters from this weekend including: Brad’s Post Race Wanna-Eats and Running for Team Fox, Craig and Eric’s trips to Berlin, Germany and Prague.  I know you don’t want to miss out on those, now do you!
