Or at least that is what the announcer said at the Race for Our Kids with the late Robert Damie (family sponsor) at the Maryland Zoo this morning. Since there was a snafu with the electronic racing equipment, no one ran either the 10K, 5K or 1 mile fun walk. We actually all ran and walked more; therefore awards couldn't be held. It was determined we were all winners—for participating in the great event to raise funds for the children at Lifebridge Health/Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, MD.
Bill and I were signed up for the 5K (3.1 miles) and ended up with about 3.8. We were grateful for the extra steps. We were in the middle of the pack so no awards ever entered the picture for us! We were thrilled to be a part of a great cause.
As part of the race fee, there was a yummy breakfast by The Classic Catering People and entrance to the zoo. Since we had obligations at home on the calendar, we only snuck in seeing the African Penguins, a snow owl and a big fat porcupine.
