Claire and Phoenix ran this race last year, but obviously don't remember. Claire was excited to wear her number bib though, since she had just seen me come back to the hotel wearing mine. Especially when I told her she would also get a medal. She wanted to be carried to the start line and fussed standing in the corral, but then all of a sudden when the guy said, "Go," she took off running!
I stole these photos from the photographer's website. Don't worry, I plan to buy the entire package. How many times can I say, "That's my girl!"
Claire stopped after crossing the finish line to wave at the other runners and wait for Phoenix. Then the two of them collected their medals like a boss.
