"Fiver's Flamingos" Conquer Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon



(From the Fiver's Flamingos team captain, Janine Garner)

We raised over $2,600 for alsaga.org! :)

Many thanks to those of you who donated.

For those of you who would still like to, it's not too late to donate! You still can! :)

Well, I guess the Flamingo is out of the bag... we did have a Flamingo run with us, hehehehe.

Everyone yelled "GO FLAMINGO" as she ran by. Apparently a giant pink flamingo in the race was both unexpected and quite popular. :)

The race itself was a BLAST. We all started out as a group & ended as a group & got several pictures together throughout the race. As the race progressed we broke out into smaller groups of people with similar paces and then met up at the end and crossed the finish line together. It was AWESOME!

That said, we could NEVER have done it without our support crew, Ron, Christina, Sarah (THE GODDESS OF SPORTS MASSAGES!), and Jess' family. You guys are AWESOME!

So a big thanks goes out to the Fiver's Flamingos Marathon Team. Looks like everyone had a great time, and raised money for a great cause. Again, the ALS Association of Georgia does so much for us and for others suffering from ALS, they really are a lifesaver.
