Helping Pam Reed with the Sabino Canyon Sunset Run

We've been in Tuson now for close to a week and I must admit that I just love it! There is so much here for my kids - I can't believe how Bella is swimming, she's becoming such a little fish! And the community just seems so active....bikers everywhere, rollerbladers, runners, etc. So great!

Last night, we went to the Sabino Canyon Sunset Run. It's ia race that covers 6.4 miles and goes up & down Sabino Canyon, in the Catalina mountains. It's an absolutely beautiful course and Pam Reed did an excellent job as the race Director. I am so looking forward to working with Pam, as Jay and I become co-race directors with her for the 2007 Tucson Marathon. She has tons of energy and she actively recruits race volunteers from her family for aid stations - last night, we were joined by her son and both her parents. :-)

Here are some photos form the event...a sample of the beautiful scenery along the course, a photo of my dear Bella - who was the absolute best aid station volunteer, and me handing of water to Mike Evans. Mike did amazingly well, shattering his 10k PR (even considering that this was a tough course and had an extra .2 kilometers beyond a 10k) and winning first place in his age division. Go Mikey!!!

Have a great day!
