Tour des Flours

This weekend I ran in the Tour des Fleurs, a 10K race, with my fellow E&Y runners. It was a team competition and each team could have as many runners as they wanted and the top 5 finishing times counted for the team total. We had about 15 total runners on our team. We got third place (my time didn't count). But I was happy with my time anyway, 1:05. I ran with Gail and we chatted the whole time except when she tried to leave me while I stopped for a potty break! The race started and ended at the Dallas Arboretum so we walked around after and looked at the plants and art tents.


7:15 am. Tax team before the race....

...tax team after the race. Appr. 8:45 am.

And just in case you thought we were cool...I'll tell you what our shirts said. Front "Ernst & Young". Back "How come you're not signed up for the 401K? Oh, I could never run that far!" That's right, dorky accountant joke. We even got comments while running. One guy passed by and said, "only 390 more K to go." It took me a minute to realize what he was talking about!

I actually think your shirts are funny. I did not know accountants had a sense of humor. I am supposing that 1:05 means one hour and five minutes and not one minute and five seconds. And since you are happy with the time, I am, too. Congrats.

Wow, that is a dorkier shirt than our "SLP grad student" T-shirts. That is really saying something!

I think that is a clever idea for the shirt. I like it. I admire your dedication with your marathons.
