Happy New Year!

It just ain't 2007 until this happens:




(picture blatantly stolen from TriEric's blog--thanks, Aimee, for recording the moment!) :) That's Espeed, TriEric, JenC, TriAl, and yours truly


I TOTALLY blew it and parked where I used to RUN down the hill, since I used to live in the area, thinking I could DRIVE down...yeah, not so much. So I heard "3-2-1-AAAAAAAAAgggggggggGGGGGHHHHH" and was still fully clothed and about 10 feet behind everyone and got SOOOOOOO sad. :(

Then I saw TriAl who was a little late, too--and a few brave souls above jumped in AGAIN with us for the "second wave!" :) Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy! Only us truly nutso CTC folk would enjoy such a sadistic and chilly ritual. We all agreed this year felt much warmer than last year. My parents were on hand to film the festivities--hopefully will get a vid clip up here soon!

Jodi , Rob, and Charlie were there, too, as well as about 40 others, but were all smart enough not to jump in a second time with the other crazies! :)

Happy Happy New Year and here's to new beginnings and waking up like someone dumped ice water on your entire body!

UPDATE: Here's the nightly news story! I'm on the far right in the first scene...along with JenC, TriAl, TriEric, and check out ESpeed's TV DEBUT! :)

Good times! Happy New Year!

E-Speed said...

They totally cut out the part where I said the reason I jumped in twice was to hang out with you! LOL

Happy New Year!

I think jumping in ice cold water may be good for a years worth of recovery therapy. Now you're ready to start another year of hard training. Maybe next year I'll take the recovery plunge.

You look happy.

Wait...no, you don't.
