Remember when I went to Iceland to do that multi stage race? That was a tough mofo, right?
Could there be anything tougher?
The core team that prepared me to run that race consisted of my nutrition consultant, personal trainers, nurse practitioner, rolfer, massage therapist and yoga instructor. I managed get all of them to come to my place for a thank you party.
Yes, that was definitely tougher.
My boys ushered everybody in : “Welcome contestants. Let the hunger games begin.”
We gathered at my rooftop just as the wind picked up momentum. A few minutes later, while most of us were still eating and drinking, “just a lil bit of wind” gained hurricane force, started blowing food off of our plates and the tables and we had to abandon ship. Meaning all 11 of us (hmm… actually 13, sorry tango and Fox) had to get into my teeny tiny apartment where we pretty much had to take turns to sit.
Mostly because Tango (the axe cat) decided to keep a whole seat for himself.
We played Rockband 4 on my PS4. Fascinating, how, not more than one of us could play at the same time. Epic fail on the host. But one at a time, we played.
Oh, here is my awesome team
From left : Amy from OK, Lisa, Michael, George, Nate, Alex, Saiju, Amy, Ellen and Chelsey.
And a million thanks to Cat for taking this picture.
Because between George “the lightweight” getting drunk and being hilarious after ONE drink AND Alex super patiently explaining “I’m whiskey”* to Cat AND me successfully escaping an attempt to make me retell my “undie story” AND all the “thats what she said” situations where I could not even make eye contact with Alex without bursting into a laughter AND Ellen’s funny and interesting stories (as usual) AND Cat and Nate and George playing RB guitar one small note at a time and their honest attempt at a high solo score…. HilaArious!
My point is, I was so into what was going on, it did not even occur to me to take pictures! The social media ho / diva / teenage girl / hairy Irish man in me is completely devastated!
And amazingly, they all liked the vegan food I got from my favorite South Indian restaurant, Woodlands!
Well, there were more than just Samosas and deep fried snacks but no pics <sadface>
I could write a post about each member of my team! May be after the next party… 😀
* I introduced my kitties Tango and Foxtrot and said “that makes me Whiskey”. Cat had NO CLUE what that meant and Alex had to explain the WTF *facts* Alex (L) and Cat
