Sprint for Cancer 2012

Serves me right - I haven't blogged since the beginning of the school year when we went on our college road trip and since then, blogspot has made a few changes.  One of those changes is how to post pictures.  I USED to have to do them in reverse order, in order for them to be in chronological order on the blog.  I did that today and lo-and-behold, they are in reverse order instead.  Since I don't have time to re-download all these pics (or to figure out if I can switch them up), you can either look at them in reverse order OR start at the bottom and work your way to the top.  Deal?

After a month of paleo eating, 
they happily loaded up on their favorite carbs.  :)

 Chantell's finish!
 High five, girlie!  You did it!  
 AMS had trained with us for a few weeks, then
was injured and didn't start back until 3 weeks before race day.  
She ran the whole thing, though, and met her goal!  
 Congratulations, girlie!
 Seconds after finishing - in 39 minutes, 
her personal best by several minutes!
Congratulations, COS!!!
She came in 3rd place in her age category!!
 Some much-needed water
 She sprinted and beat her Mom by 1 second!

 JSS was asked for an interview by the emcee
after he finished the race!
 JSS PR'd at 34 minutes!  His mom's first
5K was 32 minutes.  He was hauling and
knocked about 9 minutes off his time.
So proud of you, buddy!
 JSS gave it all he had for the 3 miles
and made an incredible finish.  He is 
very much looking forward to his Mud Run
in June and even the Turkey Trot in November,
where he plans to beat 34 minutes.
 Just starting out (COS and Mom)
 Just before we headed to the corral for the race
to begin - I wanted to show that she 
eventually woke up and SMILED.  :)
 The four of us, just before Chantell found us
and we headed to the corral for the start
 Sleephead with AMS and Mom
Newly arrived and ready to race -
well, most of us, anyway.  :)
