|The racing gals!|
The route was really pretty, along the Mississauga waterfront. I did not notice one professional photographer until the finish line, but apparently they were all over the course. After viewing my photos, I'm not too impressed with the results, so I didn't purchase any. If you are feeling so inclined, you can view them here. Pauline got one of me crossing the finish line as well as one of me along the route.

|I bettered my previous time by almost a whole 2 1/2 minutes.|
Yesterday I ran with Enz. She is nursing a bruised knee. She fell during the Hazel 5k because she was cut off by another runner and lost her footing. This happened fairly early on in the race. I know she would argue, but I thought she kicked ass! If I fell during a race, I'd likely have given up. Enz got up and kept on going. What an inspiration she is. I know she's down on herself because she didn't have a great finish time, but the fact that she finished at all is the true victory. Beverly also had a bitch'in race. She has a healing tailbone to contend with and bettered her time by almost 3 minutes! Both of these ladies inspire me to keep on going. Thanks for the memories gals:)
