Leap for the Ligars

We did it. We (maybe just I) relived my high school cross country years. My best friend Quinn was ALWAYS way faster than me. I always wished I could beat her. I invited her to a friendly 5k fundraiser for our Boy Scouts 12 years after our last cross country meet. Little did she know that all I wanted was to run her into the ground. I had been training for over 3 months just so I could smoke her at the race. It would have helped me if I have told her all these years I was holding a competitive grudge. Quinn didn't even train. In fact she has a slight stress fracture from her NYC Marathon from last year.

Here she is beating my home teacher. Go Quinn!

All I could do was maybe tie with her at the end of the race.
(Someone had already finished and decided to finish the race again with one of her best friends)

Someone here is a little too into this race!
Thanks for the good times!

Just so the record is clear for everyone, Danielle finished 5 minutes before me and came back to run with me at the end. She is the new awesome!
