Halloweeners 5K

This year, Thayne, my mom, Adam, and I all ran in the East Millcreek Halloween 5k! Last year Adam won the whole thing, and this year he came in 2nd. What happened Ad (just kidding :) )! Dad came to cheer us on and was the designated photographer. What would we do without him?
If you look carefully, I'm just barely ahead of Thayne. Actually, we ran the whole 3.1 miles together.

Mom beat her time last year by four minutes!
After the race we all headed to Sharon's for a classic Saturday morning breakfast with Amy as our server. We love Sharon's on Saturdays!
