Upon finishing we got changed (now it was raining so I chose to not put on my dry pants, and yes, was asked repeatedly why I was wearing flip flops and shorts) and headed back to the finish to cheer in the Enduro girls.
The crowd thinned drastically as the weather got worse and most of us huddled in the shelter. This is when I noticed a jar of pickles with only juice left. I pointed it out to Michelle and said maybe they would let her take it. She honestly looked like she'd won the pickle lottery! And that jar did not leave her hands even when accepting her awards or when Eric asked her to do some prize draws. I didn't snap a photo of it, but we were all sure that she was in heaven with a jar of pickles in one hand and the microphone in the other.
Despite a rainy day, it was a great way to close out the season.
Thank you Eric and Sue for and the whole 5 Peaks team for an awesome season! This girl is definitely buying a season's pass next year!
