Luckily, the rain trickled down to almost nothing when the gun finally went off.

|Find Cheryl in this Picture...|
I had a second opportunity at mile one, but she was moving "So Fast!" that I only caught this Blur of an image.

|Mile one Blurs by!|
And finally I managed to catch her at the finish. Overall female: She came in 19th. (out of 794 females) Several women from her age group happened to be way in front if her. (so probably no age group award) Her overall time was 1:42:08. Again, Not her best, but fairly consistent with this year's times.

After posing for a few "after race pictures" Cheryl grabbed some loot and headed for the beer tent. One thin can of Michalob Light with a Veggy Sandwich from Panera. Totally a runner's breakfast.
|Look at all the LOOT!|

|Cheryl inspired Business card.|
Upon arrival home, Cheryl was rewarded when she received her order from Zazzle. One Notebook, some buttons and a business card. With a little luck, we will be able to use them later this summer. Time will tell.
Hope everyone is having a fun Sunday this weekend. I forgot that it is Memorial Day Weekend. I see all the American Flags on the graves of the fallen or past heroes. I like that. As a Veteran, it's cool to think I will get one someday ( hopefully not for a VERY long time).
Even though my contribution to the safety of this nation was minimal at best. I could explain that the Terrorist knew better than to attack while I was on the job.... But I'll save that story for another blog post. Cheers!
