- come to my neck of the woods to run and
- run at my pace (which probably felt like crawling backward over rocks to her) and
- listen to me run my mouth pretty much non-stop (I don't get much adult interaction) and
- help me work on my Nuun Hood to Coast Relay team application...she appears in some clips as well as shot some of the footage.
While I did have my hair done samurai-style, what most differentiated this run from other runs was neither the hairdo nor the big-ass hill that we mostly ran up...
Camera is not tilted for effect...and that hill was long!
No. It was the striptease.
Yeah, you read that right.
As in clothes coming off.
See? I'm no liar.
More than once, too.
We met up about a mile from the foot of the big-ass hill, whereupon I informed her that she would be helping me with my little project. I'm all about the surprise factor :) We ran the straight, flat bike path as a warm-up. My husband tried some filming in this section...it didn't come out all that great.
Then we turned the corner, and that's where RoseRunner said something like "HOLY SHIT!" as she looked up the face of The Beast. (Note: that thing between Mile 1 and Mile 2 is The Beast).
I must say, having company and conversation up that thing makes it infinitely easier. Infinitely. And it was a lot of fun showing her around a place she had never been. There's nothing quite like a relaxed lunchtime run through a very pretty area on a very pretty day.
Oh...you want to know more about my project?
What's that you say? If I loved you, I would?
Still, my answer is "no."
I'm such a tease.
