cherry blossom 10-miler fall kickoff! (a night of selfies)


Reid and I are both so busy/on opposite schedules, that even though we make time to see each other, its really special when we get to go out on a date, outside of Reston, and I don't have to get up early the next morning! So when I saw the invite for the fall kick off for the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler, I thought it might make a fun, out of the norm, kind of date. So for $30 ($15 each), we got drink tickets, $20 in PRR gift cards, passed appetizers (none for me - celiac sad face), and t-shirts! We even went above an beyond that by staying towards the end and each got a second drink ticket and a second t-shirt in the color that didn't win.

The whole reason that I wanted to go was because they were giving away some guaranteed entries into the race. I get the idea behind lottery systems, but after being shut out of the Cherry Blossom two years in a row (and then getting in two years in a row - 2012 and 2013), I didn't want to risk not being able to run if there was a chance
that I could get entry by going. I think they advertized that they were going to give out 16 entries, but the when we got there, they said they would do 25. Neither Reid or I had our numbers called for any of them... then, they decided to call a 26th number and it was Reid's ticket!!! So, because he has no interest in running, I got a guaranteed entry!!!

The cherry on top, then green shirt also won!


After we left The 201 Bar, we headed into Alexandria to meet up with Cobey, Carolyn, Shawn, and Jennifer for dinner. All in all, an amazing night!
