|Enz and I on the shuttle bus before the race. That's Bev in the back...and Tanya's pearly whites!|
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Bev kicked ass!
She broke her tail bone 5 weeks ago and completed her 1st 5k a good 2:20 ahead of me!

|Just before gun time.|
I think the absolute most exhilarating moment was crossing the finish line. People are lined up along the route, cheering you on, and they announce your name when you cross. Just before Enz and I crossed, this 10 year old girl, just flew by us. Unfortunately for us, the official photographer shot her and missed us. I'm not too sad about that. I do not make pleasant facial expression when I run.

I came in 77/103 for my age group and 334/441 overall. I wasn't last!!!!!!!!!
