On this day, ten years ago . . .

The Bride and Groom on their wedding day.

Wedding guests that participated in the 5K

Nicole and Brad finishing together.

My Dad, finishing dead last--but finishing--supporting his grandkids. His first and only 5K
when he was one month short of 80 years.

The shirts said, Off to a Running Start.
They are still running—literally and figuratively!

Later in the late afternoon—
officially Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Rowell

I had forgotten that Dad ran the whole way.(However, I was sort of in a place of my own during that time).

A great post and a tribute not only to Brad and Nicole, but to Dad. Donna

I loved this post Brenda, what an unusual wedding day, very, very memorable! I was so impressed with your dad! I will be so grateful if I'm still walking at 80!

OK...How could I forget that YOU are running today (right? Or is it tomorrow?) Here in Huron OH it is cool and beautiful. I hope the same for you.

And WHAT a picture and story of Walter! That's a side I never knew of him.

By the way, I'm going to get an earplug and cord and invest in a few pocket T-shirts. What a great plan!
