Here is the idea.....run a 7 mile trail run. At every mile, draw a card. The runner with the best 5 card poker hand at the end...WINS!! Sounds fun couldn't wait. Unfortunately our dearest running buddy Kris is under the weather and couldn't join us. We decided to draw her cards for her and text her each time to keep her in the game. So ready to go!!!
Our legs felt very heavy. What was going on? We were feeling like we were in such great shape for our upcoming 20 mile Wilson Creek Race. Today was a humble stick slapped across our face. We dragged the first mile! At mile one we drew our first card. What did I draw for Kris?
I suddenly realized what it was. Darn it!! My Yak Trax broke. Luckily I carry a small leatherman in my pack. Just a few minutes and it was ready to go!
As we headed up the last hill we had an eerie sight! Four big black crows on the trail. Three quickly flew away but on ehung around. He sat on the fence for quite a while.
It was a bit creepy at first. Then when we got home I googled what it might mean.
"It is said that if you see just one crow it is considered to be unlucky. If you see two black crows it is said to be good luck. If you see three black crows it is said to mean health. If you see four black crows it is said to mean wealth. "
Hey alright! I could use some wealth!!
We finished by running a total of 7.3 miles. Our legs were so tired from running in the soft uneven snow. Our poker hands ended up like this:
Michele technically won but she said since she was the "game-master" she couldn't be the winner. So, YAY I am the winner!!!
After I had to prove to Kris that I did not cheat, it was time for the gift exchange. We all are so much alike!! We ALL bought calendars for each other! Too funny!
