Los Angeles Marathon 2009

We spent Memorial Day morning at the LA Marathon cheering for the runners and Team Child SHARE.
Child SHARE is our foster care agency and it is an official charity of the LA Marathon. Our church raised money for Child SHARE by forming Team Evergreen to walk, bike and run the marathon and raise money for children.
The elite women came by our cheering section (mile 14) at 1:04.o6 (they had a head start on the elite men). The woman in red won!
The elite men came by at 1:07.41.
We had fun cheering for the runners and handing out water and fruit.
Matthew was a great water passer outer (our teenagers weren't with us because they were at our church youth retreat).
Go runners, go!
We ended our volunteer service with some yummy in-n-out burgers! = - )
We watched the winners win on tv later in the day.
