Ran a local Birmingham Track Club fun run 5K with my daughter. No official times or places but it was fun and she managed to pass all but one high school boy. It was a hilly course that was a bit technical with wet leaves covering the downhills but we had a great time. Even got a nice little interview with the local media after.

Sorry I missed this. Congratulations to you and your daughter! You've already raised $11k+? That's great!

I believe my family went zip-lining in that same park when we were up there.

It was fun, first race running with my daughter. When she was really little I pushed her (upper left photo).

Yes, very happy about the fundraiser progress. Still a way to go, similar to a marathon :)
