My Fans and Fellow Runners...

...did I mention that I convinced some of my sorority sisters to do the race as well? Gwen and Kim aren't in this picture but L to R: Nicki (5K), Tricia (10k) and me showing off our medals
Here were the crazy people holding the signs at the finish line for me! Colin with his sign, he may have slept through my finish but I won't hold that against him.Chad with his hot pink sign
Candace with her reversible sign. It said "YAY" on one side and "LYSS" on the other. Chad burst her bubble after I ran by them by telling her, "Your sign was upside down."
After the race, we all went to Jack's Stacks for bbq where Matt's cousins joined us. They just moved to KC and we usually only see them at holidays so that was a nice treat. Then after lunch, we got in the car and my phone rang and it was Dusty calling from Iraq!!! He told us that he'll be back stateside July 8 and should be in Missouri the end of July, just in time for the fair. So see the day just kept getting better and better!

Signs of encouragement are always welcome--upside down or not.
