If you know me, you'd probably guess that I was a pretty easy kid growing up. My parents read this blog so maybe they can chime in here but I don't think there were that many Emily/Mom or Emily/Dad altercations (of course there were lots of fights with my brother, including an emergency room visit, but now we like each other!). Even now, I'm really bad at fighting with people. Insults are not my thing. As a kid, I had two go-to threats:
andOh, what a hell-raiser I was. My parents probably laughed out loud each time I yelled these.
Anyway...I'm telling you this story because I am having a birthday party next month! And despite what I may or may not have said as a child, I do want to invite you to it. There's a catch, of course...it involves running, or biking, or both. Here are the details:
|Me after a summer run on the Chubb.|
What: 29mi run (or bike)
Where: Chubb Trail (Lone Elk parking lot)
When: Sunday, January 27th. 9:00am start time
Why: Because it's my birthday, that's why. But I'm not doing any crying.
Is this your real birthday?: Well, my actual bday is 29-Jan (golden! yes!) but pretty much everyone will be working. So I'm celebrating on the 27th.
Can I see some ID?: Only if I get a free fried ice cream and sombrero and you sing to me in Spanish.
|Sorta accurate elevation profile of the route. There's a lot of climb.|
