Came in 2nd in age group and 2nd last in piggy back run.

Sunday, April 29, 2012

No, I didn't actually run a piggy back race. I did do a 5K run and was 10 sec. short of first place in my age group. Then, I "piggy-backed" with a 1K run with my 3 yr old granddaughter who ran as fast as she could but was one of the youngest. So cute. She really put her heart into it. It was a win-win-win day. The weather was perfect, I got my fitness in ++, spent time with family and because of thousands of participants, physically challenged children are benefitting.
