Back to back-to-back

I know I said I was going to cut back on the races - but I'm pretty sure I just meant cutting back on races over a half marathon distance until maybe March.  Unless I change my mind again.

So, this weekend started out with the Rodeo Stampede 4 miler on Saturday.

Yep, it's February, and I'm wearing a skirt.  But it did start drizzling at mile 3, so I should have run faster.

The next day was the Be my Valentine 5k at the San Antonio Art Museum.

I was apparently confused when I ordered my shirt - but I can't really decide when I register three months before the race.

To clarify - I checked all over my house - nobody here but me and the critters, so really....

Because that means I don't have to share my paycheck, my beer, or my funky socks my nephews got me (really, some of the guys I've dated...).  But it could also be the result of my alter ego - the crazy running chicken.  Here the chicken comes...

But then the chicken spies the paparazzi for whom to mug
and prepares for takeoff.  Somehow, even that wingspan does not improve my speed.

yet I still finished in fine chicken form

But, afterward, the chicken wore off...

Thanks to Ceci, IAAP, Hurache Turbo, Belinda, and Scotty Dog for the pics.  Next weekend I will really (really) only run one race.
