Mom still knows how to run :)

For International Women's Day, there was a Nike 5km race, for women only of course. I think they should call it International Dad's Babysitting Day. Moms run, dads babysit. Luckily Carla required no milk! So 4 months after giving birth; 4 kilos overwieight; and almost into her 4th decade.....and Maria came in......not 4th....but 5th! Out of 2,000 runners that is. Seemed a bit long for 5km, as the winning time was 17:45.....way slow! and Maria 3 minutes later.

Maria....5th right from the start.

Endorphin filled runners. Siobhan's 1st race in 5 or 6 years! She started near the back and timed herself...she was only 15 seconds behind Maria!
She's from Toronto and won a running scholarship in the US, back in her youth :) Great bandit outfit! as the race was sold out, when she went to enter.

Fan club watching from the side lines.
