And we are off...

This is an out and back. Coming back at me is Jen, first in her age group, and third for all women at just over 20 minutes.
Another 1/2 mile to the finish

After the run, we drove to Pittsburgh in time to watch some of the Los Angeles Dodgers -- Pittsburgh Pirates game.

After some tough negotions, we bought two tickets from this gentleman ticket scalper. He was reluctant to take a picture, so he covered his eyes.

In the seventh, this terrific third grade choir sang God Bless America.

This was followed by...

My first hot dog of the summer.

This is the last pitch of the game, strike 3, and the Pirates win 6-3.

And the Pirates celebrate.

And after the game, a delicious Italian dinner at...
