WHAT in the World is a Jackalope?? Think part rabbit, part deer. and it sometimes has a pheasants tail. The story of the jackalope was popularized in Wyoming in the 1930's after a local hunter used taxidermy skills to graft deer antlers onto a jackrabbit carcass and sold the creature to a nearby hotel. It's funny to read comments about this "killer rabbit". Apparently, this "fearsome critter " from North American folklore can be caught by leaving out a bottle of whiskey. hahaha
Anyway....Scott the trainer (who actually came up with the #Getjacked hashtag) always says that "character can be defined as doing what you said you would do long after the excitement has worn off".......
And, proud to say the after 6 weeks of training, the group is still going strong and growing.

And here is a pic of the gang who participated at the Farmerville Watermelon run
Love this pic of Caroline after the race! They really do hand out watermelon :)
Since we are the "t shirt" people, you know we had to come up with a kick butt shirt for everyone to wear. I drew the jackalope on our trip to the beach.
I was so excited about the tank that I wore it to work with a cardigan and black pants. Yes- I was that girl in college who would get a party shirt on a Saturday and have to wear it on the following Monday!! DORK!!
We didn't put the hashtag on the kids shirts.Mr P thinks this rabbit-deer is pretty cool. (Always appreciate his approval) And so does little Lilya (shown in a 6t)
These are available online at www.mrpstees.bigcartel.com. We are pretty much sold out of the Adult version. May end up printing another run of them. Let us know if you would like one.
If you want to come jog with us, come on! We are low key, no drama, and it doesn't cost a thing.
