I have often walked down this street before/ But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before

My family walked in our first 5k walk today. If anyone had asked us - which they didn't - we were prepared to call ourselves ¡Team Holt!, which had the dual advantages of sounding like ¡Steve Holt! when we shouted and raised our arms in the air in celebration, and also might have led people to believe our name was Holt, lending us an air of anonymity that would have helped when they were shutting down the race route before we were finished.

Before the race

¡Team Holt!

To be fair, it appeared that almost everyone else was running. There were very few walkers, and the other walkers quit two miles into the course.

Good for you! Did you finish?

My Fair Lady = way too easy.

gravatar srah - November 23, 2007 - 11:36 AM -

Yep, we all finished. We're pretty sure we were last, but we finished. It was a nice leisurely walk.

Hahahah Steve Holt. (Or Steve Holt! rather.) I just snorted.

Also, I totally knew where your title came from and I was so proud of myself.

I say Steve Holt! after all minor and major victories.

I still can't believe someone in my age group finished AFTER me.

STEVE HOLT!

Using the very first lines of an unobscure song from an unobscure musical = lame. That's why I kept suggesting ones from halfway through things.

It's hard when you're trying to keep the titles relevant to the content! When's your musical titles month?
