I went down to Crosby Farm to cheer on some of my YWCA of Minneapolis teammates at the MDRA 15K. (It's a USATF MN circuit race, so lots of speedy runners were there.) This would have been a GREAT race to run, and I hope to run it next year. It starts on the edge of a parking lot, and then the rest of it takes place on (paved) trails through Crosby Farm, Shepard Road, and Hidden Falls park.

Just a few seconds after the start.

I spotted Evan with a stroller (my rabbit at last year's TC Loony Challenge).

The leaders looping back through the park around mile 1.5.
THIS is why I want to do this race! Beautiful!

Evan again, working the pop-a-wheelie-during-a-sharp-turn move
that I know well from my stroller runs with my boys.

Kevin from my team.

I think all 4 of these ladies are on the YWCA team,
but I only know Rose and Heather (in the official jerseys).

Up on Shepard Road around mile 5. This is just after the top-5 or so.
Mill City Running had a solid group in the top-20!

College buddy Dena (who you may remember from the 24 Hour Relay for Aaron
1.5 years ago
), Danielle, and Tom, with a big line of runners behind them.

Kevin again, along with Joshua in the Mill City kit.

Driving home along River Road, watching the runners head off into the distance.

I had to leave early because we had some family things going on, but it was fun to cheer for an hour. Nice work, YWCA team!
