Upper Arlington Memorial Day 5-Miler

I finally have some fun shots from the 5 Mile Race we ran on Monday, May 28th, just two days after the wedding in Columbus. It was a humid day, but a really great race! Plus, it was my first registered as my new identity so it will always be special! Several of our Austin friends also ran and kicked major butt including Thon, Mike, Richard, Perry and Amy (who was 1st in her age group!) Hava, Stephanie, my parents and Shawn’s parents were also in attendance to cheer for everyone. This was a great way to end the weekend of celebration!

We Did it!

Thank Goodness we weren’t this tired and haggard looking on our wedding day!

(at least I hope we weren’t)

My Brother (who got “chicked” at mile 4 by his sister) and my parents hanging out at the Finish Line. Shawn’s parents were also in attendance. In fact, Shawn’s parents get credit for these great photos!

My Dear friend Karl was the race announcer for the event and made sure the crowd knew who we were. Of course, I think everyone should know who he is–he is my pal that ran 52 Marathons in 52 Weeks for the the Leukemia Society. Buy his book!!

  1. Upper Arlington??? That’s totally where I grew up. Tremont Elementary School, summers in the municipal pool, riding bikes to the library . . . ah, good times.

  2. Wow. Shawn has become quite the runner. Can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon!Congratulations again (on both the race and the wedding).
