The Running of the Lilac Bloomsday Run 2009

So Chris, myself and some family members participated in the Bloomsday Run which is a 12K or 7.46 miles.

It really was a neat event with over 50,000 participants.

The Boys that ran all 7.46 miles
Brad, Chris, Darren, Mike

Me, wishing good luck to Chris, who really didn't do any training at all for the run.

My SIL Cari and I anticipating our 7 plus mile journey in which we managed to keep up a good pace with our walk/run strategy.

We saw some interesting things along the way

And here we are, we finally made it across the finish line.

And a big Congratulations to all of us for enduring the course and making it up the "Dooms Day" hill.

And we can't foget a pic of Olivia with her Daddy on the carousel
