Frankie & Peggy runs & walks the PF Chang’s 1/2 Marathon

IMG 5970-smlFrankie has so much excess energy she’s decided to do a 1/2 marathon. The PF Chang’s marathon is a huge event with more that 40,000 entrants. Runners packet pick up was Saturday at the Civic Center with large crowds enjoying the exhibitors featuring all kinds of running gear. Frankie’s hi-light was picking up her running numbers.

Frankie and running partner Peggy Lucus in their starting corral (19) before the race huddle to keep warm. Peggy & Jerry are good friends and Cholla Bay home owners. Frankie and Peggy had 8-10 friends that were going to do the 1/2 marathon but the group dwendled to two by race day. Phoenix weather was 46 at race time making it a little cool at the start but perfect for doing the 13.1 miles.

Final rewards for the race from their supporters. Great job ladies. Maybe the support crew will muster the motivation to do the race with them next year! At least we have a year to think about it.. A very fun day and rewarding for Frankie and Peggy.
