Blah blah blah. I couldn't run with them this year because of my feet (if you didn't know, and you probably don't, I have slightly frayed tendons, small bit of arthritis, small bunions, and a bit of inflammation. Nothing fixable, but somewhat painful. So ... I'm at about 1 year of not running right now, and still healing. I've got new orthotics and my Morton's Extensions are being made right now. Apparently they had to make the special because ... I have small feet??? I never heard that before) but I'm hoping I can next year if Q9 does it again.
Cut to race day. Pictures.
Q9 before the race started with her bestie H9 (right) and L9 (left) and J.E., H9's mom:
Almost done with the race. Q9's modus operandi was usually to sprint and walk, sprint and walk. But some of the time she ran hand-in-hand with H9. So cute.
Finishing the race. Isn't this the best picture?? Holding hands, doing a great job!!!!
