Belly Dancers and Beer

We did it! We survived the famous Bolder Boulder, a scenic 10K through the streets of Boulder! Totally last minute we discovered no strollers were allowed in the race so we grabbed the back pack and headed out. It was a cool rainy day but really not too bad. 

Petunia did great considering the last time she was in the pack she screamed her head off for 30 minutes. The gentle rocking put her to sleep for about the first two miles, although she didn’t look too comfy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got lots of comments about packing her 6.2 miles, most folks were impressed and Matt was even called out as “Super Dad”, I think carrying her that far he deserved the recognition.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is what Petunia thought of the Bolder Boulder.

 

 

 

And what would the Bolder Boulder be without  belly dancers for entertainment?

 

  

Along with water and Gatorade there were plenty of stops for alcohol, you could pretty much take your pick.  Beer, beer and more beer or mimosas anyone? Folks were offering bloody Marys and even vodka shots.  We stopped at all of the above (just kidding).

  1. Congrats!! That sounds like a lot of fun, and he definitely deserves a super dad award for that. Great pictures too! And belly dancers? Haha, that’s fun, a little random, but fun 🙂

    Cocktails? Really?? Geez, things have sure changed in the Bolder Boulder course since 1994! Looks like a street carnival. A girl in HM today enlightened everyone a little bit about BB; apparently it is not a charitable race; there is one family that puts it on for $1 million and does not disclose the remainder of the profits ( with 54,000 participants, this reads: they live in my dreamhouse on Mapleton Hill and have three Land Cruisers and are currently vacationing in their chateaux in France, next to Branglina’s new digs). Kind of disappointing, if it’s true.
    Sounds like it was fun though! P’s first BB, even though she slept through it.

  3. Congratulations! That looks fun.

    But i must know… why no strollers?
