Possibly the Happiest Post Ever

One thing I positively loved during the Baker's Dozen Half Marathon was all the jumping that occurred during the race. I didn't say one thing to the runners about jumping - and yet there were some massive hops happening all over the course. These pictures make me happy. I think they'll give you a smile.





I got in one myself.


I must say, this one is one of my favorites because, well, that jumper on the left is my wife. And that awesome mid-jumper next to her is her sister Rachel who was in the midst of running her first half marathon!

And this jumper? This jumper? This is the amazing Cherie Santiago who designed the amazing race shirt.






Race winner Tom Dansie even managed to get a mid-race jump:

And finally......I present to you.........A JUMPING TWINKIE!

I suspect it was all the sugar being consumed which led to such awesome jumps.
