Shaun grew up a runner. He was the fastest distant runner at his high school from his sophomore year on. Yet he has taken a 14 year break and only in the last few weeks picked it up again. He has decide that since Miss A is running, he would do it also. He doesn't have nearly the speed he used to have, but that didn't bother him one bit. After today he hopes to run more races.
You can see just a bit of Miss A going up a pretty good size hill. She had just finished one mile of the race and already looked pretty tired. What a trooper.
Here is the home stretch as he is about to cross the finish line. The picture snapped late, but his time was 26:07. He took 93rd out of 311. Not bad for not running in 14 years.
I had to post this one, as Miss A is about to pass a person who used to live in our town that goes to our church. Their whole family ran and Miss A barely passed her, as you see as she goes over the finish line.
Thanks to this lovely man. I only got a before the line picture, as Miss A is right behind him in the next picture. Her time was 37:00 flat.
We are proud of both of them. When I saw the hills they ran. I was glad to be on the cheering end. (not that I can run 3 miles constantly yet either.)
