Green Dress Run

Hubby and the ARR President Ed Zanelli

Ed's rear view, pretty legs!

Contenders for the Best Green Dress

We voted for Ed but the guy with the coconuts won!

And finally, my trainer, Kathleen.
Today was ARR (Albuquerque Road Runners) Green Dress Run in the foothills...yes, note the "hills" part of this word. About 4 miles long and a lot of fun as you will see from the pictures I took this morning. Thursday was St. Patrick's Day....hence the "GREEN". But judge for yourselves, bet you would have liked being with us:). Sorry no picture of yours truly.

......Yesterday I forgot this astonishing and gracious athlete, Latrica Dendy from New York. To see her run is truly a thing of beauty. She pocketed 2 golds:
in the 200m with a time of 25.50 
and the 400m  with a time of 56.46
