Halloween 2009: Karin, Marg and Chris brought costumes to the CCU. Mine was an elephant because my legs were so swollen, that's exactly what I felt like! Disclosing theirs could qualify for CLB (career-limiting behavior)...

A reminder of why I was even able to attempt the run.

Work photo!

Darden - wahoowah!

It's almost go time.

Right before the final mile began I started skipping to get my heart rate up, and everyone started skipping with me... Karin took the high knees to a whole new level.

This was taken by the "real" photographer about halfway through that final mile. You'll notice that everyone is smiling happily except me - not feeling too hot.

Relieved to be yards from the finish line...

Thanks to Chris for capturing this finish line shot (and most of the others)! We made it!
