Workout Wednesday: Bring on the Bluebirds!


It's here at last!  It all started with an impromptu chat on Twitter about relays (and I finally scrolled back and took screenshots)







and suddenly we had a team!  Me, Tina, Leana and Michelle head to Banff this Saturday to run the Banff Ekiden Relay!


Go #littlebloggybluebirds, go! 
(think we could get it to trend? y'all could help with that by cheering us on via Twitter on Saturday!)

I picked up our race kits at Strides tonight.


Longsleeve Mizuno Tech shirts!  They fit a little small, but not bad really.

and have them all filed away with a few other surprises and goodies I have been working on for my lovely team mates!  Oh, are they ever in for a surprise come Saturday!  Shhhh...don't tell.


Logistics are worked out for travelling. There may or may not be singing involved...(ok Singing WILL be involved - the car is my stage!). and, well, of course there will be coffee!  It'll be an awesome roadtrip with a car full of birdies.


We have our legs - both relay and anatomical.  And the fancy socks that Leana found to dress them up in afterwards.

We have a whole lotta sparkle to blind the competition with.
Big thanks to our honourary teammate, Nikki, for the lovely team prezzie!

How talented is Michelle to whip these up for us?
We have Shwings to make us fly!



I have supplies for cheer signs!  Note: actual supplies may vary if I change my mind or raid my craft stash ;)



My waiver card is competed

and my race outfit is ready to go - just needs to add me at dark o'clock on Saturday morning.



And my after race stuff too...


We bluebirds are sooooo excited and ready to rock this thing!


Just four Calgary bloggers ready to take Banff Ekiden Relay by storm...or by sparkle!

The race starts at 10am (though the roadtrip hijinx start much earlier) and you can follow along on the adventures here:

  6. This looks like so much fun - I hope you girls have a BLAST! :) I came across your blog while searching for Calgary bloggers, as my hubby and I are moving there in January (from the US). I'm also an avid runner, and reader, and thought I'd reach out to say hello! GOOD LUCK!
