So, we got ready, put on our matchy-matchy (matchy) "Roadkill Wives" t-shirts (oh, I forgot to mention that they named their team "Team Roadkill"), and packed up the vehicle.
But before we left, we needed breakfast. Lots of older, burly guys in the motel lobby, and we got the feeling they hadn't seen females in a very long time...lots of stares. Maybe it was the matchy-matchy (matchy) t-shirts that said something about roadkill. :)
And, of course, it's not a real road trip until you see something kinda bizarre. And get your picture taken with it. For us, it was the fire hydrant in front of the motel that was painted to look like a sheriff.
And then we set outto find where the guys' (and Joanna's) 3rd leg would start. That took us to the Frankfort area...beautiful scenery! If you are ever in Kentucky, please, please, please take a drive through horse-country. It's breath-taking.
So, after figuring out where we needed to be, we still had some time to kill before the team got started. So we went shopping. :) I love this photo of Ashley (who's maiden name is the same as another famous Ashley with Kentucky roots).
After a little while, we got a call from the guys saying they would be a Johnny Carino's if we wanted to join them. The three of us are big fans of The Office, so the idea of them eating Italian food conjured up images of Michael Scott's carbo-loading from the "Fun Run" episode.
We showed up to an almost empty restauraunt. (Some people close a place down...our guys get there so early they open the place up!) The exhaustion was evident...and they all had one more run to go.
At least Joanna was still perky! :)
Our server was awesome -- she snapped a picture of all of us together before we left.
Oh, and we picked up the 4th member of our group -- Alisha!
Mike showed off his secret to staying warm.
We finally used our signs! Notice Brian's sideways-jazz-hands running technique (take that, Chi Running)...
...which Ashley was kind enough to re-enact. :)
And then it was time to go our separate ways...even though we were more or less heading to the same place...
Next up: modeling t-shirts, waiting in empty driveways to ambush our husbands, and the big finish!
