The race is over! We had a great time today, though it was COLD! (Around 35 when we started...). I got to the finish line six times before I actually crossed I kept running back to meet more class members and run them to the finish. One of the fears of some members was finishing last. I told them I GUARANTEED them they would not come in last...I made sure I was the last to cross!

Here are a couple pics. This first is a group picture. The second was the best part of the day. Our last member coming into the finish line. A group came out to meet her and run the rest of the way in. It was so cool to hear all the cheering for her!

These photos are fantastic! Sounds like you guys all had a great time for a good cause. I'm sure I can speak for the rest of this group, here, mommaxeli, you have become a powerhouse of inspiration not only for us here but by the look of these pics, to almost everyone you have encountered on your journey outside of "Web-dom".
I stand and applaud your victories.

Fantastic Mommaxelli! Great pics and terrific job! Amen to Kim's kudos on being inspirational to all. You had to have experienced not just a runner's "high" but a great sense of accomplishment as well.

Thanks, Judy, I think you are right. My face recognition skills are not too good!

mommaxeli responded:
Thanks, everyone! It was definitely a day to remember!

That was a good guess, Judy But I'm actually standing in the back row, fourth from the right in the red! In the running photo, I'm on the left (still in the red!).

I've got a handful of people willing to move onto 10K training. We're starting this week!
