5K pictures -as promised! (Jennifer)

Here are the pictures to go along with my post(see below) from earlier today. 




I was shaking in my sneaks here.  So nervous!

This is a great pic(thanks Ron) of the large crowd of runners...and this isnt even everyone.



And we're off....



There I am coming up to the finish line!

I am to the left of the balloon  :)

All done and home...


Here is a video that will give you an idea of just how many people were running this race(about 2100 or so I think).



For those of you who have done 5k's are most of them like this???

Hope you enjoyed the pics and video!

fHi Jennifer,

I walked two 5 k's, they looked just like that. When I saw the video I got all choked up and teary. I not understanding that. Anyway, my daughter and I are doing a 10k walk on 10/24/10. We are going to try to run part of the way. Can't wait!

Hugs!

Jennifer said...

Whitney- I know just what you mean!

Joy- I get choked up and teary when I look at the pics and video too. and being there was even worse! It was like surreal being part of such an amazing cause. So many people getting together to push for the same thing...a cure. I got choked up a few times when running too!!! Good luck on your 10k! You will do great and I cant wait to hear about it!

I saw you post on Shane's blog, and so I came here and was like...WTF? You live in MY Hometown?!? Seriously? A local lady? Sweet deal! It's nice to meet you! I look forward to following your blog! You can check out mine sometime, too. I recently posted pictures of a little hike at Thatcher Park. :-)
