Team Ortho "Get Lucky" 7K

>> Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Or, "A 7K For My Wife (Who's 7th Months Pregnant)"

FYI: in case you had ANY question, my wife did NOT "race" this race. She's smart enough to know that she can't go too hard when pregnant. And we just got the "OK" last week from the Doc that everything was good and she could keep running.

What does a pregnant woman need the night before a race? Ice cream! Of course!



We got to the race and started working our way through the 5000 other racers!




Us before the race.


"GOOOO!" Everyone starting in the distance.


Pharmie hung around to start at the VERY back of the 5000 racers.
She hit the start line about 12 minutes after the leaders!


Teletubby at mile 1.


Everyone running past the Mill City Museum.


Pharmie around mile 1.


The "soccer mom's" hubby kicking to the finish!


One of Pharmie's co-workers (but I didn't know that when I took the
photo - Pharmie saw him when we were looking through the photos!)


Chasing a pot of gold for 7K! Amazing!!


This guy was REALLY into his music. I mean REALLY!


Mugsy McGoo (the dog) finishing the 7K in style!
(Hey, who's that in white in the upper right?...)


Pharmie finishing! Note how pregnancy makes you HOT -
how many people in short sleeves do you see?....


Yay Pharmie! And baby!


Just after finding Pharmie at the finish.


Congrats!

That makes 3 medals for baby's room: the TC Marathon (we found out Pharmie was pregnant the next day!), the Polar Dash 10K, and now the Get Lucky 7K!

(I have a little Team Ortho 7K write-up on my Examiner page, but the slideshow isn't working... their support team is looking into it. Sorry!)

Back tomorrow with the announcement of the winner of the CycleOps JetFluid Pro trainer!

That baby of yours will have run more miles before he or she is born than I ran in my first 25 years of life :)

Way to go Pharmie!

So awesome that Pharmie is continuing to run through her pregnancy! She makes it look so easy(and fun!). It's an inspiration for those of us that will "someday" do the same thing!

Looks like a fun race, congrats! It gives me hope to see your wife running during her pregnancy. That is very inspiring!

Oh my gosh, Cutest baby mama EVER!

Pharmie looks healthy, fit and so happy. :)

Very inspiring...this coming from a local athlete who just found out we're expecting too! Nice job and thanks for keeping ME motivated Pharmie!

I feel like your lovely wife should own this suit after she has her baby. You'd look great together in runs! http://www.swimoutlet.com/product_p/16773.htm?color=9325

If, and I really do mean IF I ever get prego, I want to be as BA (bad ass) as Pharmie. Your kid is going to come out of the womb running!

Congrats to your lovely wife! I really enjoyed your pictures. There were certainly plenty of fun characters running the Get Lucky this year. That's one reason why it's one of my favorite races. :)
