i don't read blogs without pictures....

My stitchin' bitchez have cajoled me into gracing this post with photographic proof of our prowess (see post below), so I bring to you the knitty ones, some still adorned with knitted headbands, and all of us wringing wet:


The one in the middle is Sparty, and he always remains in character. And by this I mean, always walks around making primitive "shake fist in air to signify victory" gestures to all and sundry. Often frightens small children. It's awesome.

The one with her gob open yelling at the photographer. You guessed it, that's me. (Where's the bushy hair? I got it summarily hacked off the day before. So there.)

From left to right you also have Lis (creative genius of knitted headbands, and winner of sexiest running shirt); Corinn, creative genius behind Dago-Fest 2006, Sheila, who made us all do it, and Jen, designer of this little gem for the t-shirts:

Lookin' good, chica! I can't believe you feel compelled to go around proclaiming your pregnancy with that lithe frame.

Also, any report on what's under Sparty's skirts? Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

Hey, if you have any spare 'stich n' bitch' t-shirts I know a little Brit who could give one a great home.
Now you've done the run, when youre littlens are grown up you can say 'me and your dad used to do sponsored run(s)' (make it plural, they'll never know) to assure them that they got any sporting genes from you, too. Well done Joy, hope you enjoyed it :-)

I have to say I picked you out before I read. No prize necessary :)

And hooray for Sparty. Sniff. I miss him.

You look like a great person to drink a few bottles of wine with. :)

I picked you out too before the hint. Is there some booze in that cup? :)

Looks like fun and I am loving those t-shirts!

You look like the girls who would knock back rum and cokes in gym and then kick the shit out of the opposing volleyball team. And you do look amazing for all that sweat inducing exercise.

(I just read your 'things about me' page and laughed so hard. Scritti politti! And the miracle whip line. I needed a laugh today.)

That Sparty guy looks mighty cut. For a dude in a skirt, that is.

(Nice headbands!)

You all look like you are having wicked fun. And love the hair. Works well with the wet look.

And? Where can I get me a mascot? A big one, like Sparty. One that pumps his/its fist in victory. Want a mascot!

Tres fun...and yes, you do look far too lithe 'n fit to be preggo. Start hanging out at the iHop and get in REAL shape!

Great picture although the Spartan is a little scary and intimidating.
