Friday was a welcome day because I had a long day at work (good distraction from pre-race nerves), and then had a Team Sprinkles meeting that evening. This was our last meeting of 2009, and was especially exciting because so many of us were wound up and excited to run on Sunday, and we'd be celebrating the recent Las Vegas Marathon Wedding of two of our members, Max and Denise. Yes- they were married as they ran the Las Vegas marathon!! We couldn't be happier or more excited for them! We celebrated their recent tying of the knot by giving them a 'run-thru wedding reception at the Sprinkles meeting.
Max and Denise completed everything from making the wedding toast (with Gatorade of course :-)), the wedding dance, taking a photo, cutting the wedding (cup)cake, tossing the bouquet, and more in an impressive 1 minute and 3 seconds.
Team Sprinkles co-presidents Genevieve and I were surprised with holiday cupcake gifts. Team Sprinkles-- happy, carb loaded (and cold, I might add), and ready to run on Sunday!!
