Running in underwear just once this year wasn't enough, so last weekend I flew to Phoenix to join team 'Susan's Friends' in the Phoenix Undy 5000 5k. Susan had so many supporters I'm not even sure if I knew half of them. It was great to see so many people out there in her support.
Congrats to my brother and sister-in-law for running their first 5k races- though my brother has vowed to cut down his 9 minute mile place to a 5 minute mile pace by next year. Well... good luck Marty! I guess I'll chat with you at the finish line next year if you're still around by the time I finish! :) And congrats to my Dad for finishing strongly in spite of an extremely late start and pushing a 2 kid heavy stroller with flat tires for 3 miles.
My mom captured the entire event (honestly, nearly every second of it) on camera. She is a fantastic photographer- so I'm not sure why everyone in these photos looks like they're part of the witness protection program. I'm certain it's a problem on my part because her pictures look fantastic!
Next year- same race! We'll all be back- hoping to run with Susan this time!
