Cindi & Jodi walked in the 5K at the Team Gluten Free even held at Mill Valley Park in Marysville. It was nice, small race with yummy gluten free cupcakes and other gluten free goodies afterward. Cindi won several raffle prizes. There was 2 mile walk option but we walked the 5K "run" instead. Cindi would have one the 2 mile walk with her pace. We'll have to think about what we do next year! Thanks for a great race, Speedy Sneakers!
Laura, Sharon, and Zita took on the Emerald City Quarter & Half Marathon on Sunday, August 25. Great job, ladies!
