Race For A Cure

This morning, Gina got up at 6am and ran a half-marathon in Long Beach! That's 13.1 miles! Not only did Gina acheive the amazing acomplishment of completing the race. She also raised over $2,500 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Thank you friends!

Gina's been training for several months with a group called Team in Training. They abbreviate their organizations' name as T.N.T. But we all know that it should be T.I.T.


Several bands played along the course. I saw this band doing a Credence Clearwater Revival song...
And I saw this band do a song by the Cure...

Volunteers were giving free massages at the end of the race. The line was almost as long as the half-marathon.
I found this row of port-o-pottys very photogenic. I also found it funny that there was a homeless guy peeing in the bushes right behind them.

Here's Gina (in purple) rapidly approaching the finish line.

Gina finished the race in 2 hours and 55 minutes! Great job Gina!
