Running short races on weekends:

Weekend before Labor Day

This was the first year we ran the Milk Run 5K at the Minnesota State Fair.

Saturday of Labor Day weekend we ran races at the Buckshot event in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, benefit for Special Olympics. The Buckshot was the first race we ever ran... eleven years ago.

This year around 1400 runners participated.

At the Special Olympics Buckshot Races they celebrate all sorts of people. They have FIVE YEAR AGE GROUPS ALL THE WAY TO 95!
Awards are always interesting.

Another race this weekend, details later...

I love that T-shirt slogan. And the keychain or medal (whatever it is) in the last shot. I'd run hard to get one of those!
