Earth Day Half Marathon and Relay!

Five of us decided to participate in the Earth Day run at St. Cloud State this year! Grant ran his first half marathon and then Catherine and I, and Heather and Molly paired up to run the half marathon relay!  Here's Catherine and I getting ready to go 

Molly, Me, Catherine and Grant before the race

Those giant arrows point to me, Grant and Heather - we started off the race!  This is everyone getting lined up to go.  I, um, special requested from Catherine that I run first so I could run with Grant for the first half of his race - and she was nice enough to agree ;) Even though we later found out that the second half of the relay is slightly longer than the first half!

Molly starting her leg of the race (after a little excitement when we first couldn't find her at the half way point! heh ... then she came running across the field and jumped right in with her head phones flying ;) lol.  That's her in the purple

We finished!

We came in 14th out of 98 in our division with a total time of 1 hour, 50 minutes and 59 seconds for the 13.1 miles

Heather and Molly finished too!  Molly even witnessed a girl in front of her get hit by a deer - seriously!  ha!

And Grant finished his first half marathon!

Overall he was 362 out of 1,287 with a time of 1 hour, 49 minutes and 28 seconds - awesome!

That was fun :) But glad it's over!
