Cedric couldn't resist joining in.
I watched the race from my friend's front yard (someone has to take the pictures). It started light, with the elite runners.
The elite wheelchair racers.
The elite women racers.
Like last year, we saw a lot of bright and interesting outfits/costumes: two bananas, Mario and Luigi, two gorillas (how do you run 7.5 miles in a gorilla suit?), tons of tutus, Dorothy with red sparkly tennis-shoes, and two Waldos (THERE'S WALDO!), a pack of bumble-bees, the Power Rangers, and several sombreros. A couple of ladies even jingled by with belly-dancing belts.
And there was one tiny dog with his own race number.
Cedric didn't even break a sweat.
