2011 Runners Den Pancake Fun Run

4.21 miles in 41:50. Still nursing a left calf strain but it's feeling better and I ran the last quarter mile at 8:41.
This photo about sums it up
This fun run was designed by Runners Den to be a limited opportunity fun run for post RnR AZ runners or the first 250 people who emailed in. There was a waiting list of about that many, so there is definitely an interest.

The route is familiar to all who run with the RD running groups on Wed evenings or Sat mornings. An out and back from the store and along the canal with views of the Biltmore.

This guy is getting heavy!!

Sally Meyerhoff was there just standing around so I chatted her up and got this photo:

Later, I took this photo of Sally SLAMMING Log Cabin syrup
Sally: eyes wild, incoherent growling speech, and hands and jaw a blur as she lays out a stack of flapjacks
Good buddy Lauren was there serving pancakes, curiously without a hairnet.

The Brooks Cavalcade of Curiosity Van was still in town and was set up for free gait analysis and there were shoes to try on along with 20% off of all Brooks gear. Good deal.
Daddy wishes his errrr... feet were that big

I love you little guy!

Those are the most amazing running costumes I've ever seen! Sounds like a blast.

Sally could crush your head like a grape with her quads (that is a complement to her for her strength and you for your soft head). Wait, did I say that out loud?

I can't believe I missed this post - since I am the designated syrup troll. Was that the American corn syrup darkened with molasses or was it maple syrup?

... don't answer this question. Just correct it. Corn syrup kills, maple syrup improves intelligence.
