The local community organized a Stand Against Sarcoma 10k this morning for our friend Rob. It was a most appropriate way to show support for this avid runner.
Krissie did an awesome job when put on the spot to say a few words, though I know she would have given anything to be cheering her husband from the sidelines vs speaking on his behalf from the truck. This a hard thing, cancer.
"One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong..." Yeah, that would be me up front. In my dress - partly because the pair of sweat pants I packed had to be tossed after we painted and partly because who is going to talk you into running 6 miles when you are dressed like that right? I did what I do, took pictures, and handed the camera up to Krissie so Rob could have a look at the crowd which took several frames, left to right, to capture.
Allen finished in very good time. And this run, Aidan was determined to join in. He has run 4.5mi but never a 10k til today. He did a fantastic job and is very encouraged to try it again.
Kieran and the kids hanging out waiting for the runners to finish.
We love you Krissie and family. We really do.
