REMAIN CALM AND SAY YES-THE QUADZILLA

 
 
THE QUADZILLA 
 
THIS PAST LABOR DAY LOOKING FOR A LEGITIMATE EXCUSE TO ENJOY A GOOD WORKOUT AND BRUNCH, THE QUADZILLA WAS BORN.  SEEKING   SOME BRADENTON RUNNING CLUB SOCIAL TIME (IT HAD BEEN ALMOST 24 HOURS SINCE THE LAST GATHERING)  I CALLED A QUADZILLA FOR 7 AM AT THE BEACH. 
 
 THE PLAN WAS TO RUN FOR AWHILE, BIKE FOR AWHILE, SWIM FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND EAT AND TALK  FOR A LONG WHILE.  4 BRAVE SOULS SHOWED UP IN THE POURING RAIN…..
 
 
DEBBIE, MARTHA, NAN AND MEL
 


 
NO SNICKERING PLEASE- YES,  OUR AVERAGE AGE IS A FEW TICKS MORE THAN THE NUMBER OF  SECONDS IN A MINUTE.   YES -THE QUADZILLA WELCOMES ALL AGES, KICKSTANDS AND WALKERS. THE REAL REASON WE ARE SMILING SO MUCH IS THAT WE SURVIVED A TSUNAMI RAIN STORM, LIGHTNING AND  FEAR OF DANGEROUS MARINE LIFE  AND  SLOW RESTAURANT SERVICE.
 
 
WE LIVE IN THE BRADENTON BUBBLE AS MARTHA CALLS IT. IT IS  ALWAYS SUNNY AND THE RAIN IS ALWAYS OVER THERE SOMEWHERE.  NOT THIS DAY.  THE BUBBLE APPARENTLY GOT POPPED.   HOWEVER- YOU DON’T MESS WITH THE GRANNIES.
THE QUADZILLA WAS  ON.  IT IS SIGNIFICANT TO MENTION THAT DEBBIE BROUGHT A NOODLE FOR THE SWIM BUT WE PUT IT ON THE TRUNK OF THE CAR IN THE DARK AND IT BLEW AWAY WHILE DRIVING TO THE ISLAND.  DEBBIE DID SWIM ALL THE WAY TO THE BUOY MARKERS AND BACK WHILE KEEPING WATCH FOR DORSAL  FINS.  HER LIPSTICK AND EARRINGS STAYED PERFECT. THE  ALWAYS PERFECT HAIR  WAS  SADLY A BIT SOGGY AND NOT PERFECT. SHHHHH. SOME FORLORN FAMILIES HOPING TO EVENTUALLY PICNIC TOOK OUR PHOTO AND THE FASTEST MILES OF THE DAY WERE TO A WARM DRY RESTAURANT.
 
FINISHER CERTIFICATES WERE ISSUED ALONG WITH COMMEMERATIVE BANDANNAS.  THE LATEST SPORTS CRAZE WAS BORN. 
 
 A FEW WEEKS LATER ANOTHER VERSION OF THE QUADZILLA WAS PLANNED-BIKE-RUN-SWIM-EAT/BRAG.
 
6 NEW QUADZILLIANS SHOWED UP,  AN AB WORKOUT  ALSO HAPPENED FOR THE OVERACHIEVERS AND PHD’S IN THE GANG.
THE FANTASTIC CREW FROM QUADZILLA 2.0
MIKE, DEBBIE, KRISTIN, LINDSAY, MARTHA, ROBYN AND BETTY.
PLEASE NOTICE THE  VERY TIGHT ABS ALL AROUND
 
 
LOOKING FOR EVERY POSSIBLE CHANCE TO FEEL IMPORTANT THE ORIGINAL 4 WERE NAMED THE FOUNDING FOUR AND WE  ADDITIONALLY REQUEST THAT THE WORD ELITE BE USED AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.  YOURS TRULY IS THE CAPTAIN AND DEB, MARTHA AND MEL HAVE ADMIRAL STATUS. PLEASE SALUTE  OR BOW  WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER US ON THE STREET.
 
THIS PAST WEEKEND WE REPEATED THE FORMAT AND SPEEDY JOE TANNER RODE THE RED ROCKET FOR  THE 50 MINUTE BIKE SEGMENT AND MADE IT ALMOST TO ST ARMAND’S. CLEARLY THAT FAMILY HAS A HANDLE ON THE BIKE AS LINDSAY SMOKED THE ROAD AT THE PREVIOUS VERSION. LET THE RECORD REFLECT LINDSAY AND KRISTIN  WERE  TAPERING AT HOME FOR THE THIRD RENDITION AS THEY WERE PINNING ON A NUMBER FOR THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL TRI THE NEXT DAY. BRAVO GIRLS. 
 
 CAPTAIN QUADZILLA  DETERMINED THAT SWAG MATTERS, SWAGGER MATTERS MORE AND  EGOS MUST REMAIN  SUPER INFLATED AT ALL TIMES.  BRAGGING  STICKERS WERE PROMPTLY  DISTRIBUTED.
 
 
SURELY YOU HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT THIS TREND:
 

100 !!! DOROTHY WE ARE SURELY NOT IN KANSAS ANY MORE
 
 
AND JUST LOOK AT THIS POMPOUS SOUL.
OOOPS…. THAT IS MY CAR.
QUADZILLA  !!!!!    BRAG FOREVER
THE QUADZILLA STICKERS ARE  ROCKING  STREETS OF BRADENTON.
IF ANYONE IS LOOKING TO BUY A 4 AT HOME DEPOT -STOP BY.  I HAVE THEM ALL.
 
 
IT IS MY SAD DUTY TO REPORT THAT SINCE  THE WATER TEMP HAS DROPPED TO AN UNACCEPTABLE 74′ AND THERE WAS  DURING THE LAST QUADZILLA : A STINGRAY SIGHTING  THE SIZE OF A BIKE –  SWIMMING POOLS OR A DIFFERENT DISCIPLINE ARE CLEARLY  UNDER CONSIDERATION. 
 
THERE ARE PERSISTENT RUMORS OF A FRIDAY THE 13TH QUADZILLA AT THE ROBINSON PRESERVE THAT WILL INVOLVE CLIMBING THE TOWER OF TERROR ALL 72 STEPS.
GET YOUR 4 ON FOLKS
   
 
 
THE ELITE SAY REMAIN CALM AND SAY YES
QUADZILLA
BRAG FOREVER
 
 
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY AND SENDING MUCH LOVE TO ALL
CAPTAIN QUADZILLA
