So Saturday I headed over to Danielle's and waited for Jeff and Alicia to pick us up in Kristine's van. We then grabbed her and headed down. We had such a fun drive down. Long rides are always more fun with friends.

Around 3.5 - 4 miles down the boardwalk we saw the lead runners coming back down. They were on the opposite side of the boardwalk than the lead runners were last year. They did change the course a little bit so we did not get to see the lead women. We headed off the boardwalk and started looking for our friends. Pretty soon we saw Jen Q who I assumed was in the lead of all the IGR and then right after was Danielle then Jen K, Eileen Alicia, Kris, Colleen and Susan. We made stopped by to say Hi to Lucy and then I had to pee again.....so crazy I never have to pee that many times during a run.
|I remembered these girls from last year they were clowns. Too cute.|
|Thanks Janice for the picture!|
|The medal is pretty but it is tiny.|
When we finished we found out that Jen K was in the medical tent and so was Kris!! They are both OK but I hate to hear that. There was NO FOOD left and I was in a rush. I ran back to the hotel while Janice and Fran waited for me in the casino. I got read said goodbye to Kim, Colleen and Eileen and then met up with Janice and Fran. We grabbed lunch and played the slots for a while. Susan then met up with us and we went to the Tropicana. Susan ate we played more slots and thenSusan and I headed home. It was a long ride - this is why I fly but when you are with friends it is fun.
All in all it was a great day. I know a few of the girls will be heading back again next year but 2 was enough for me. Next year I will be headed somewhere else :)
