Hot Pants Twins are back at it!!!

So...there is this crazy girl that I've been friends with a long time....and lets just say that one time we put on hot pink pants and decided to run a marathon together. Theres a refresher..not like you could really forget that image anyway. Anyway....we came up with a GR8 (hoodpoints..using 8 in the middle of a word..sorry inside joke) idea to run a half marathon on the treadmill next weekend. Ya see....I will be in Cincinnati and we wanted to go running anyway. Little miss speedy hot pants runs faster than me...so running on the treadmill might be a great option for us....and why not be official and run an official race. Of course one could argue that a 5k distance is an official race....but as Laura says...Go Big Or Go Home! I have a lot of people to catch up with that weekend in Cinci and since I am a slow ass runner and don't want to be on the treadmill half the day...a half marathon is a perfect distance for the hottie pants to run. We fully plan on bringing a large cooler of gatorade to create our own "Aid station"..and maybe even hanging signs on our treadmill to keep us motivated. We might even make some shirts with race numbers......and if anyone at the gym is lucky that weekend.....we might just even bust out the hot pants! Most people hate the dreadmill....as do I...(but not lately...we've been secretly in love)....so what would be more hardcore than running a race one? Besides...many northerners that train for early marathons do more than this on the treadmill anyway. Soooo whaddya think? I would like suggestions for the name of this "race"......entertain me please... haha

I bet that will be a lot more fun than by yourself. Love the "aid station" and race numbers idea!

You know running that long on a tredmill would normally sounds horrible, but your race actually sounds like it would be fun. You guys are too cute with the aid stations.

ahhh! what a morning treat to see that you've posted already :)

i think this will be hilarious... not to mention that if we get "prime" treadmills up front... we have a view of the entire gym and will look over a balcony(and hotties pumpin' iron, for me!) not into a wall/mirror. i know we can do it :) i can do anything w/ my ST.

love you!

Have Fun...I've had to do 20 mile training runs on the "dreadmill" because it was too cold to run outside. I actually didn't mind it that much as it is fun to people watch, but you do tend to get some strange looks. Good idea with the aid stations and the motivational signs.

GOOD LUCK!!
