Team Edge Girls Tackle The Cooper River Bridge Run!

This weekend is the annual Cooper River Bridge Run. They say the "Bridge Run" is the best organized and best conducted 10k race in the world, and it better be because they are expecting 40,000 participants for this years event! The CRBR has been an annual event since 1978 and serves as a modal of health motivation for communities throughout the world. 

The Edge Fitness Center is proud to announce that we are being represented by four of our finest EdgeFit ladies!

Sarah, our very own "drill instructor" will be running and she may need to listen to her own words of encouragement to get through this one. Don't be afraid to yell at yourself sweetie "Pick it up....Pick it UP....PICK IT UP (screaming)!!!!!" Also, remember hunny this is a running event not a fashion show so you don't need to get up at 4 am to prepare your hair, make-up, and outfit. Shorts, t-shirt and a hair tie is all you'll need....Man, who am I kidding! Early to be Friday night then Babe! 

Tracy will be running the event for the first time. Trace, I'm sorry I won't be there to take the brunt of that ruthless stare you give when things are getting really tough, but never fear you have about 40,000 other people to choose from so don't be shy, STARE EM DOWN!!! Also, try and keep the language PG, there may be kids around you - remember it's - SHIT.....TAKI-MUSHROOMS!!!

Christy will I believe be participating for the second time this year so this should be a cake walk. This doesn't mean you get to eat cake afterwards though Christy! I'm not sure if they have AC fan's lining the route to keep you cool as your body temp reaches "1000 degrees", but you'll be fine as long as you remember "YOUR MENTAL!!" When it gets tough just remember to repeat those famous words of yours "I can do it, I can do it, I can do it" and you you'll be crossing the finish line before you know it.

I would like to also give a shout out to Stacy. Rutherfordton's very own marathon runner elite, who will also be participating in this years event. Enjoy your warm-up run Stace and remember when you hit 10k your done, so stop there runner girl!

Ok, I'm done with my sarcastic remarks now.

In all seriousness, I would like wish our girls the best of luck! Have fun and enjoy this wonderful experience, it's going to be quite a spectacle!

P.S. Don't be shy about bringing me home some stash, I wear a size large T-shirt. Just food for thought....
