Don't Eat the Donut When a Camera is Near
Last Saturday, we all went to the Brian Diemer Americam 5K Classic. Edward & John ran while we girls watched. It was a beautiful morning and all was well. The race is obviously named after Brian Diemer who is a local Olympic Bronze medalist in the Steeplechase and a very good runner. The tradition of this race is that everyone who beats Brian gets a donut. The thing is, he ran this race in 16 minutes and 54 seconds, and that is hard to beat. The time is adjusted for females, and a good friend of mine, Laura, beat this adjusted time by coming in at 18:32. Laura, of course being a runner, did not want her donut, so she gave it to me, a non-runner. Now the photographer of the event must have thought I looked like A Pretty Good Runner since I had a donut and must therefore have beaten Brian Diemer, and he took this photo for the website. John found this picture on diemerrun.com , and really, I only took about one or two bites of the donut. Really. They just happened to take the picture at that exact second.
