el Scorcho, in pictures

yeah, i know. I've been a slacker blogger. It has something to do with recovery from surgery, then getting clearance to run then going on a weeklong adventure with the family to ThemePark Heaven (or Hell, depending on your view of the Disney machine and theme parks in general. We love them but can only tolerate them once every six years or so!!).  I apologize. I'm running again ,and swimming and cross-training, so there will be more entries soon. Pinky promise. but....

Somewhere in there, I cheered and spectated and sprayed water all over the runners at El Scorcho. I promised pictures in my last entry, so despite big-time camera fail before the race even started (new camera didn't charge long enough before I took it out there), I do have pics to share. So here you go!

Pre-Race cheer squad. Tutus, glowsticks & glitter signs in the EBV.
Cassie & Ben-jammin assembling glow stick madness
Fiona wasn't running so she donned the tutu to cheer, along with the girls!
How many ultrarunners does it take to set up a tent?
ET Phone home!
Stacy arrives looking smashing  & ready to run!
The two whitest girls you know!
Ninja I & Ninja II getting ready for combat.
Just how small can Dat fold his bib?
Cannot stand the cuteness!
Julie is so crazy she drove down just to cheer! YAY!
The Official Unofficial Soaker Station!
Libby and Julie!! 
Met twitter folks out before the race!
Tutu patrol!!
Pre-race with David (who ran his first 10k in September - WTG David!) Megan & Libby
With Arlington Strider Blanca & DM Frunner Lupe! Lupe did her first 50k!
Really? How cool is this? Twitter, DM & just general frunners! WOOT!
The excitement was too much to handle... 
My original Twitter buddies Felix & Mark 
With Michelle - she finished her first 25K! WOOT (and some of these pics are hers)
Toward the end of the night. What an awesome group of frunners!
I'm very much looking forward to this race next year, when I will run it instead of just cheer. Hopefully we will have as big a crowd again and have a great night of running, cheering and frunnership!!

Love it!! I am so glad that you manned my camera otherwise it would have sat in my bag...and we wouldn't have great pics! Thanks for cheering too, it helped SOOOOO much to know you were there.
