This seems like a good place to add mine!!

Erin and I hanging out before the race.
Image

Robbie-T - ready to go!!
Image

Ed Fizz - also ready to go!
Image

The photographer and cheerleader, Ken and our surprise guest Marg!
Image

Marg off to a good start (I think that she smiles the whole time that she runs!)
Image

Race to the finish!
Image

I love the expression on Marg's face - priceless!
Image

Victory!
Image

Robbie-T's super fast finish!
Image

Ed Fizz with another victorious finish
Image

Dave racing to the finish line - this one is also funny because of Marg's facial expression.

Your pics are great! I learned a great trick with my camera to put it on rapid picture take so that when you press the button and hold it will take 5 or 6 pictures. It's great for running because you can just post the good ones!!

Tortoise: great pics! I loved each one of them.

We're going to try this new thing called jogging. Or maybe it's yogging-with a silent "j". Apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It's supposed to be wild.

Nice photos!! I like the group one. Actually, I like them all.... :lol: I can never see too many photos of happy running maniacs (or happy partying maniacs either for that matter!)

And Dave, that look on your face -- wow, determined!!! But scary too!! If I was standing there, I would definitely get out of YOUR way!

Great pics Tortoise and Kristi. Wow, you maniacs sure were flying when you hit the finish line. Robbie-T, those Kenyans have nothin' on you 8) BTW Tracy, you look like a college girl in that photo :whistle:

Susan, those medals were such a special finishing touch to the Fall Tour for the 3 Maniacs. That was a very thoughtful gesture.

Wowzers... you guys got some great shots...

LOVE the flying Robbie-T at the finish line... that should go beside the definition of "Kick" in the dictionary... wow. :shock:

Joanne, Kinga - :oops: thanks ladies... I guess all that botox & collagen helps (JOKING! ) And I love my pink tangents... sadly the 2007 ones are blue :?
