Diabetes Run

This is my little sister Brooklyn. Last Saturday she did this 3 1/2 mile run to help raise money for Diabetes something......how random huh? I say random because we just as a whole are not a running family. Now talk to my cousin Savana miss marathon vet then that's a completely different story. So I get this call on Saturday morning and Brooklyns going on and just casually mentions oh yeah i'm just coming from this run I just did. LOL She didnt even tell us. I think my parents knew but I totally would have gone to cheer her on. She said it was a lot of fun. There were like a thousand people there and 153 of them were registered as runners the rest were the walking group. Out of those 153 Brooklyn got 8th place. "I COULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE IT!!!" (That was for you Con) Needless to say I was proud. And although she smelled like a dirty trucker when she showed up at my house for this photo op, we just couldn't have been more happy for her.

That's awesome. I'm training for a run in Feb. It's a blast. So is there another one in Brooklyn's future?

Denee, I found your blog through the Herbsts'. I was in the Falcon Hill ward before it split. I was wondering if you are still doing photography and if you give a CD with the pics or do you do prints? Can I get some information about your prices?
Thanks, Raegan Turner (raeganturner@yahoo.com)
