Pictures from my Weekend

Happy Monday! Yes, I made it back from Cleveland tired but happy and in one piece. Had a terrific visit, too. The major event we were in town for was the annual 10K and Marathon, which I've run many times. It was the first 10K I ever ran (that's 6. 2 miles, by the way), 10+ years ago, so I return as often as I can for sentimental reasons.

This year, my mom and sister ran as well (only my sister was crazy enough to run the marathon, which she finished in 3:15--average marathon time is 4:05--and as the 9th woman out of 500+). Here are some pics:

The Night Before, with my mom and younger sister in the lobby of the la-de-da hotel where we stayed in downtown Cleveland

The morning of the race, Mom and I getting ready to tackle 6.2 miles!

There I am, waving at hubby, at about 5 miles (I passed the woman in front of me, right after he snapped the picture, by the way:) )

Bringing in my Mom after I finished

Overall we had a good showing: my sister and mom both placed 2nd in their age groups, and I held my own for a decent 33rd in my own. Considering 10,000 people turned out to run, not too bad, hmm?

Congrats on your great run! 33rd out of 10,000 runners is fantastic.

Happy Monday to you!
