The Finish Line

Early in the morning on the 4th of July, three of our kids ran a half marathon together on Sauvie's Island. We left the house at about 4 AM to do the hour drive and get there early for the 6 AM race. (Some people do this for fun!) There was a terrible traffic jam getting over the bridge onto the island, and we arrived just after the marathoners had started, but right on time for the half. There were a lot of admiring fans milling around; several thousand ran. While we waited for the first runners to come in we shopped in the produce barn and admired the chickens and goats. Then the runners came streaming in over a period of several hours. For their pains, they got hot dogs and strawberry shortcake and a tee shirt. And a lot of satisfaction!

I was practicing my collage-making again. Bear with me. Somehow I got a duplicate print in it. Sigh. It's not so easy...But it's fun.
