ADNIC Yas Run 2013

Today was kinda a big deal.  This happened:   ADNIC Yas Run.  Not only did it happen, but American Daughter (better known as Alana) ran the 1K.  It was a super big deal.  For those of you who don’t know us personally, I have mentioned her health issues before here.

Here’s a short breakdown of how the day went:

pre-race prep (emergency nail clipping) with American Husband

pre-race hugs with American Son This was right after he told her "Good luck, Alana, I hope you don't die.

American Husband was in charge of the camera during the run because he's so tall.  Sometimes height is not an advantage.

Alana finished with a time of 06:32, in 241st place!  Obviously not the best time, but she finished, and I couldn’t be more proud.
