Several weeks ago, a friend texted me and said “I just signed us up for the Grave Robbers Run”. Oh, did you now? The Grave Robbers Run is a spin off of the show The Amazing Race, that was being held in our town for the first time this year. It was built off of a local story in our history, ending with the head of an unknown male. (I won’t bore you with the details) Our goal was to find said head.
We were given clues along the way on where to go next, and all of the clues pertained to our town’s history. Luckily, we were able to use our smart phones! So our team of four women entered the race and just prayed to finish.
We ran around our town (ok…walked, jogged, trotted, tiptoed and meandered) for three hours, for a total of nine miles in search of a head. Well guess what! We dug it up and got back in time to take second place! Oh yeah!! I couldn’t believe it. Our prize was $100, which we donated back to the charity having the run.
So there you have it…I may be a retired woman with some years under my belt, but I still got “it”! 🙂
