I joined Tara’s link up at Running ‘N Reading this week – you can check out her Weekend Update as well!
I honestly don’t even know where to begin this post…I spent several hours yesterday just sorting through all of our pictures from the 1st Annual Dr. Seuss Virtual Run!
This run was an absolute blast! We had 26 members of our Java & Sole family and friends show up for an early Sunday morning run today. Amy was a fantastic race director, organizing our date/time/location, routing out 13.1 miles around town (twice actually, because part of the original route is still covered in snow!), printing and personalizing our bibs and providing our post-run refreshments. Tina, officially assistant race director, is holding up one of our huge Dr. Seuss medals!
Sherry and Jenny were our traveling water stop/cheerleaders/race photographers 🙂 I think I only took 4 pictures all day (I mean, sometimes I take that many pictures of just my coffee after a run!)
At mile 5, we had our first stop. Some of the girls only planned on 5 miles based on their training schedule and/or Sunday morning obligations, like church! So they had wisely dropped off a car a the mile 5 stop and drove themselves back to our starting line. The rest of us grabbed some water and nutrition and continued on.
In it for the long haul – the rest of the groups finished with 10, 11 or 13.1 miles!
Jennifer made this cute collage to include our race bibs and medals too!
Some of us stopped around mile 8 when the traveling water stop caught up to us … okay, I guess technically we caught up to the car.
Our race directors presenting Amy with some finish line food – a cupcake of course! And that’s Sherry cheering us on from the car while Jenny is taking pictures!
Our finish line photos, taken by our race photographer Tina.
Nothing like raiding your daughters’ dress up box at 6am because you thought it would be fun to have some post-race photo props … like tu-tus!
Post-Race Refuel: You know what makes a great race even better? CUPCAKES!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Tell us about your weekend? Did anyone take advantage of the warmer weather to go run or play outside??
