The 5K Race

The day of the big race that Doodle and her friends have trained for finally arrived--an overcast, warm, muggy morning. Doing warmups with a little help from friends... The start line. Doodle was in back of about 500 other runners and I wondered if I would see her as she got started.
Aah, there she is...
And she spots her cheering sister...
Nearing the finish line with our neighbor C...
Posing with her medal...
A few hours later, Doodle played a tough soccer game. Her team, three of whom had run the 5K, won, 4-3. To say that I'm proud of my girl would be an understatement.
