My sister Sis and brother-in-law Stuart, their friend (and now ours) Heather, and my brother Tim all ran as well. My sister-in-law Nancy is training for the Portland to Coast and used the time to get in a great training walk! Sis and Stuart ran the Crater Lake Half Marathon the day before! Now that's impressive!
We had all kinds of things to celebrate over the weekend. Our Anniversary, Gary's birthday, Stuart's birthday, back to back half marathons, Gary's first half marathon and longest run ever, good health, life, love etc. etc...
Pictured from left to right: Heather, Laurie, Gary, Sis, Stuart, Nancy, Tim. This was before the race. It was a little chilly!
These were all taken before the race...
Don't party too hard the night before a race because you have to get up really early the next morning to drive somewhere and catch a shuttle... Just bear with me on this post, I want you to get the full race experience and if you get through this whole blog there is a big prize at the end (not really, but keep going).
Having a great time on the 7:30am shuttle! Our driver was a kick! It was nice to have superior entertainment on the way to Shevlin Park.
We made it!!! Whoohoo!!!
