This was the Pancreatic Cancer Purple Stride 5k at one of my alma maters - St. Mary's University - on November 7. It was a great run. My slow post-marathon finish time netted me 3rd in my age group and I won a $50 gift certificate to a wine bar as a door prize. Good haul!
Before the race:
And during the run, thinking "dang, I just ran a marathon two weeks ago"
Caught getting some post-race beverages - Jenna is like the paparazzi.
I first met these two about a year and a half ago, when I queasily crossed the zoo run finish line. I thought "why does that guy have my dog? why is Gwen not home where I left her? when did Gwen get so buff? and WHEN did she, um, grow balls?" (I HAD just tried to run 2 miles as fast as I could in San Antonio in the Summer, mind you. And, look, they are pretty similar - Gwen's the one on the left!)
See? Anyway, next up is the Cobweb Chaser on New Year's Day. Mercifully, gun time is 10:00 a.m.
Thanks to Jenna for the pics! And fight, Pete, fight :)
