Victory for Victims 5k

Everyone over the age of 12 in the So.Cal. Wrigley family signed up for the 5k race today. From left to right we've got Jennifer (sis), Melissa (niece), Tami (wife), and Jeff (me).

Official times were not posted before we left the event, but unofficially I recorded my time as 20:40 and the girls finished together in just under 40 minutes.

This was Melissa's first 5k ever (official or unofficial).

After claiming she might faint during the run, Melissa saw the finish line with just a few hundred yards to go and sprinted ahead of Jennifer and Tami to win the Wrigley Women's division!

Melissa sprints ahead with only 0.1mi to go

New Runner

My niece Melissa has expressed an interest in running with her Mom on her next 5k. So this Sunday - she's going to run the victory for victims 5k River Walk/Run at Lake Balboa Park! This is especially awesome since it was only a few months ago that her Mom ran her first 5k ever.

18 months worth of socks!

So the drymax challenge is over. Thanks everyone who voted for me, and especially to my friends and family who went out and got their friends and family to vote for me. Most of the compliments I received were on the music, not the video - so an extra special thanks to Jen for finding such a great song!

Here are the results straight from Through Th3 Wall

As the winner of the challenge I get 12 months worth of drymax socks which basically guarantees I'll have the driest feet in Los Angeles for at least the next year. I don't know yet how many pair of socks that will be, but I'll be sure to let you all know. On top of that, the cool folks at drymax socks are also giving 6 months worth of socks to my new friend and drymax challenge nemesis Steve Stenzel.
