Maple Grove Half Marathon

I didn't run it. But my friends Paul and Tom from ALARC are the organizers/brains behind the operation and so I have volunteered two years in a row now. It is my job to stand just before where the 5k runners go straight and 1/2 marathon runners take a left. I have to scream to the runners which way to go, based on their bibs. (Wonder why I always get picked for this spot in the race?)
This was on Saturday morning. It was 39 degrees and WINDY. Wow, was it cold. I hope you can tell from these pictures how cold it was:




Also, I just happened to look down while I was waiting for the runners to get to my 'station' and I realized that I must have been standing in the common area for teenage girls to throw their underwear out the car window. Gross!






Anna and Christine ran the race as a relay! I was so proud of them, they did the race in 2 hours and 16 minutes total. (Beat my best time by 2 minutes.) Wow, was it cold...

This might seem like a dumb question, but why would they throw their underwear out the car window? It seems like a waste of underwear.

Because underwear grows on a tree in their backyard, of course.

(My word verification was 'butspest'. hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa)

We had so much fun running the relay! But I don't think I've ever ran in this cold and windy weather. It will be way hotter in August I hope, maybe I should watch what I wish for.
