Team Gilmore-Remember Haiti runs Cross City Race downtown

Dorina, Cori, Marcy, Dad Doug & Ericlee were some of Team Gilmore who ran at the Cross City Race.

In October, we ran our annual Cross City Race in downtown Fresno. This was a 10k run through the city. We especially enjoyed this run because we were accompanied by several of our friends who have joined "Team Gilmore - Remember Haiti." There are 19 of us total who are training for the Two Cities Half Marathon on Nov. 7. The Cross City Race was a kind of "practice" race for our team. We also got to sport our new "Remember Haiti" team shirts.
Dorina & Meilani cruise around the baseball field for the kids' run. Meilani got a little psyched out so she didn't want to run when all the other kids were running but she did complete the 1/4-mile route after the race was finished.
Nama Chris came out to cheer us on. Daddy Ericlee ran with his buddy Chris Schultz. Dorina ran her own 10k - her best time for this distance even though the race was a little frustrating because there were no mile markers. We are all looking forward to the big race on Nov. 7 with Team Gilmore, which is a fundraiser to raise support for our family to go to Haiti.
