find it here. And here they come! This was at the half mile mark - everyone is looking good! Jeff is behind the woman in pink. My car served as the beverage center for the aid station - Karen brought her Hulk Hanks and was "knuckling" everyone as they ran by - too funny! We found ways to entertain ourselves while waiting... Fun times! Karen's hat was from a Warrior Dash that she did - similar to Beach Palooza that I'll be doing with Jeff, Kelly and Chuck in September. Coach Dale dropped by and couldn't resist the lure of the Hands! I'm telling ya, put these things on and you can't help but make crazy poses! Jeff coming toward mile 5.5 - it was hot and he was ready to be done! My Half Homie Julia dropped by! She posed with the Hands, too, but that picture must be on Karen's camera. |
So the race ended but I don't have any pictures of the finish because I was still at the aid station. Jeff finished second and
After everyone had breakfast, Coach Joni gave out awards, with prizes - woohoo! Jeff got a "diploma" because Joni said he's graduated to the half marathon program. Actually, it was an enrollment form for the upcoming half training program...which he registered for. Dallas White Rock on December 4th, look out! I got a lighted hand clapper thing for being USAFit's biggest fan. Which I am - it's a great program, and a great group of people. I'm glad I found them!
So, Jeff starts his half marathon training on June 25th. I will not be joining the group this go-round. And as sad as I am about that, I have to say that looking at the weather forecast makes me a tiny bit glad that I don't have to think about running in this heat. Swimming is looking pretty nice right about now!
