So Caroline and I will not be out-done by Team “I’d rather be drinking” of Stuttgart, and so when we were drinking beer at Hooters a few weeks ago, we decided we were going to do a half marathon together this fall for a few reasons:
1. We have been lazy
2. Beer makes anything sound like a good idea
3. I’d like to be that person that LIKES to run, but I really don’t see it happening. Currently, I only run when chased, which actually never happens.
4. We decided to pick a different country so we could travel.
First it was Dublin but then I realized that race is during my Exercise for work so that’s no good. So back to the drawing board we went and we FOUND IT.
Aviemore, Scotland! HERE WE COME!
And so in October, to celebrate our (29th) birthdays, we are going to run this race: http://www.aviemorehalfmarathon.org/Pages/How%20to%20Enter.html
And we are going to wear the girl version of this bit of awesomeness:
And then we are going to drink a whole lot of this:
And eat some neeps and tatties (no idea what either are):
Then we are going to go harass the locals and get drunk and listen to their fancy accents and celebrate our BIRTHDAYS for the rest of the weekend. Sounds aggressive.
Scotland, you have 6 months. This is your one and only warning.
