Autism Awareness 5K

The THS Autism Awareness 5K - what a great way to spend my workday lunch break!

Eryn and I changed into running stuff and made the short walk to Cook Park. A ton of students, staff and some community members also showed up for this middle-of-the-day run/walk hosted by our student leadership team.
It was casual but still very well organized! The course was well marked, and several water stations were available over the not-quite-3-mile course around the park.

Because I have a race tomorrow morning, I took this one easy. Eryn just began her 26-week training for the Portland Marathon (is that public knowledge yet??), and did a slow run/walk.
I finished and then walked back to run the end with Eryn. Then we did a little extra to finish off the 5K.
The fliers promised a sandwich bar after the run, and boy, did they ever put on a spread! Several kinds of bread, peanut butter, jelly, three kinds of cheese, several meats, condiments, lettuce, tomato, chips, cookies, granola bars, yogurts and a cake. 

We split the chips and cookie :)
I'm so proud of the THS students and staff who want to help others and do great things! You guys are awesome :)
