Anyway, we started the run with the intention of going slow, steady and just enjoying the scenery, which we did. The course was pretty and fairly flat (max elevation change was only 250 feet at a low grade). Anyway, we finished the race to a supportive team of my parents and promptly made our way to the beer tent! Because, let’s not kid ourselves, passing the sign at mile 3 that there would be beer at the finish was definitely a motivating factor in my continuing to run the course. After enjoying our beer, resting our feet briefly, we loaded up, headed home, cleaned up and went to a healthy lunch of pizza!
I have included some pics below of us during the run and after. Enjoy!

|Done… slow and steady!|

|Success! Beer Tent Located! The best part? On the medals is a beer bottle opener… yes, you read that right!|
|Getting ready to head home after a fun run and a good morning!|
On that note, I’m off to run today after work! Have a great day!
