    Looks like a good time, Scotty!  So were those beads "earned"?

      Nice job, Scotty!   I don't know how you manage to run such good times AND stop and take pictures as well!   The races you run should give you free entry fees because you document the events so well!!  Thanks for sharing your story and all of your fabulous pics!!

        There has been a lot of falling and busted up knees around here lately!


        Nice job despite the conditions.

            Gotta love these races with costumes and festive colors!  So fun!  It looked colorful and bright with those tee-shirts despite the weather.  Congrats to your friends for all their AG awards, and congrats to you for another great race!   What is a sausage wrap anyway?  I rather want one I think.   And that pic of all the pastries, YUM!!!!!!  All races should end with such nice treats.

              Great report, Scotty!


              As always (and despite the weather), you find the happiest racers in Texas. Even the mellow Yellow Fellow seemed happy! Smile
