Reindeer Run 2010 (in pictures)!

I finally ran my 1st 5K!!! It's been a few months leading up to this moment!! So here are the pictures (race recap tomorrow):
Mostly everyone had really fun costumes! My parents took these shots since I don't have a camera :(
My brother-in-law Mike, reindeer mascot, my sister Stacy! This must have been while I was running! Kept them busy!

More costumes! There were actually people who were "presents" and ran with boxes around their bodies!

My brother-in-law Mike, Me, and my sister Stacy before the race! I'm sooo glad they came to support me!

Me and my running buddy Rebecca! Look at our shorts, haha! I look super tired...which happens when you're up at 5am!
Right after Santa said "Ho, Ho, Go!" It took awhile for it to thin out
My dad was partly an unofficial participant in order to get this shot! He literally ran in front of us!

Finishing strong! As you can see the people who were done were walking the opposite way to their cars

Right before crossing the finish line....Almost done!

At the Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis after the race! That's a spoon and a cherry!

 I'll recap the whole race in tomorrow's post! Stay tuned!
