Extremely poor set-up at the Expo today. :-(
Hopefully, they will rearrange bib pick-up for Saturday.
After over an hour in line, I finally got my #! :-)

I've got my yellow "Team Sparkle" skirts to show my support for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer!

I've got my Custom Ink "Twins Run in Our Family" T-shirt!

And, I have plenty of nerves! ;-)

I ran my 1st Broad Street Run in 1999. It was a record field of 7,300!

My official time: 1:46:23
Place: 1,956 / 2,249

Unfortunately, Leah can't run with me as we planned. :-( 
Although, she probably would have left me in her dust. ;-)

We'll run together again...
