Mother's Day is Race Day!

McMillerPDX celebrated Mother's day early this time and Saturday morning, B and E accompanied Ms. A to Champoeg State park where she ran the Hippie Chick Half Marathon.  In 2:00:45 (approximately).  Woot!   Christie, from The Condo, completed the quarter marathon and was cheered on by her own Darren, Henry, and Beauty the Wonder Dog.  The coolest thing (and it was perhaps the coolest race I've ever run) was we got a necklace at the end. And mimosas. 

The weather was phenomenal. Sun, warmth, fields of grasses and flowers.  The company was even better.  900 happy, supportive mellow women all running/walking because it feels good to do so.  And the coolest thing was a surprise: Christie found awesome shirts for the kids proclaiming the proclivities of their respective mothers. 

Of course there were pictures:
