Juneathon 10 & 11

Oh what fun I had on Sunday!  I did get a short 5 mile run in after supporting my BRC Women’s Fit Teammates at the Garden of the God’s 10 Miler.  I was on track to do this race and was thinking about it when the migraines hit.  So I went back to my original plan – going out to cheer them on.  This was my third year doing it and my second year with my FREE HUGSsign.  I loved it so much last year I had to do it again.  I drug my friend and teammate Sarah along for the fun!

Sarah & I braving the cold and wind!

All photos are courtesy of Anya Inman at Pikes Peak Sports.  We definitely had the best spot on the course and were a blast to hang out with!   Huge thanks to her for all of the great pictures of me giving hugs!  We got a lot of thank you’s from the runners.  It wasn’t an easy race this year because of a terrible headwind and it was a little cool out (cold for me and Sarah).

This lady was extra special.  She was almost to tears when she told me how much my hugs meant to her.  I hope she had a great run!

Hugging while running downhill takes some finesse.  I handled it better this year.  That and people were more willing to actually stop to give me a hug – gee thanks!  Well I do believe I will be back next year.  It’s become a tradition.  And I still think “This is the worst parade ever!”

PS:  I got a 5K in today!  Still going strong!


I love to hear from friends!
