2011 Race for Riley - Pictures

Here are a few images taken at the 2011 Race for Riley.  The first picture, taken after I got home, is of the race schwag.  The total haul of stuff from this one race probably exceeds all the stuff that I might have accumulated from all the races I have ever run in my entire life.  Just a few items in the schwag bags were, a 10-pack of AA Duracell batteries, a big pack of Luv's diapers (not shown), sunscreen, deodorant (2), toothpaste, toothbrush, a mesh airport style bag, body wash, Swiffer, Mr. Clean scrubbing sponge, a nice cooking apron (not shown), etc.

Some, but not all, of the race schwag

The grass was damp from the dew so some may have gotten their feet a bit wet.
