The sponsors of the Morgan Valley Marathon will be happy to know that Shirlee's $15 entry fee/deposit won't have to go towards a "hose down" of the 5K route since she was able to do the entire distance without even so much as a dry heave.
Teresa, Shirlee, Carol and I got up bright and early last Saturday and joined the rest of the Morgan ranks to participate in the Morgan Valley Marathon/Half Marathon/5K.
Les was on vacation and wasn't able to join us, but look--that's Cindee's face squished in there between Teresa and Shirlee's faces.
Even Buster participated
He was there with Bren, Chase, Deanne, Caybree and Ron. Tiff and her sister Amy ran the half marathon which started a half hour before the 5K.
More of our courthouse friends--CoyAnn, Steph Teri and Tammy
Any hoo....where was I.......
We very much enjoyed our "FUN RUN" by taking it easy and "fun walked" the route. In fact, by the time EVERYONE pushed past us, we were in last place. Which was ok, I looked at it this way: we were like the pick-up crew. We made sure there was no one left behind. And we got to see all kinds of fun clothing that got left behind. By the looks of the number of shirts we found, there must have been a lot of topless runners out there.
Below is photographic evidence that Shirlee made it over the Como incline and on to mile marker one. The party balloon was not left for her as a congratulatory gift.
At which point Shirlee kicked it up a notch, started flapping her wings, and brought 'er on home. She may have thrown out her shoulder a little with that final push to the finish line.
Here's our group photo suitable for framing.
See what I mean!?!! Too pretty to have just run a half marathon. Not fair!
Chaston give us the "That's all Folks"
