I ended up as a spectator while Husband ran the 5K. He had a good race with a strong finish and I suspect an age group placing (I don't think there was anyone over 50 ahead of him, but I could be wrong). He didn't want to stick around for awards though. For the record, if it ever looks like *I* am going to place in my age group, I *will* stick around, but to each his own.
It was a beautiful day! I took some photos with my phone.
|The race was at a local park|
|There was a category to walk with a dog, but these folks actually brought a piglet!|
|This was at mile 1. See the guy running in a Christmas Tree costume?! Hahaha|
|Husband (in black & grey) finishing strong and with good running form.|
Our local chapter raised about $26.5K for the Arthritis Foundation.through this event this year. I really wish I would have been able to run, but spectating was still fun. I'm hoping for next year.
If I placed I'd stick around also. I don't think my husband would want to stick around though.ReplyDelete
Wow, 26k! That's awesome.
Great pictures, looks like perfect running weather!ReplyDelete
I'm with you. I'd stick around.
OMG I love the running Christmas tree. That's awesome. I will also stick around for an age group award. lol! Congrats to hubs and great job spectating.ReplyDelete
We take our pig to every race we attend......... HAReplyDelete
Me too. I only stick around if I think I placed. You'll be running it next year I bet.ReplyDelete
