Cross City Race: Training for Haiti Half Marathon
On Sunday, October 9, we continued our family tradition of participating in Fresno's Cross City Race. Ericlee ran with several of the members of our Remember Haiti Marathon Team, who were training for the big marathon/half marathon coming up on November 6. Among them was my dad, Doug Lazo, who ran a great 10k race sporting his Remember Haiti team shirt from last year.
Our friend, Heather Fenton, ran the 10k at a great pace. She and her husband, Mike, are also part of our Remember Haiti team. They are gearing up for the half marathon race.
Allison Vasquez, and her hubby Troy, are also part of our Remember Haiti team. Her daughter Mia ran in the kids' race. We had fun cheering them in.
The highlight of the morning was Meilani running the quarter-mile kids' race with Daddy. She ran the whole thing with a smile this year. She won a 2nd place medal for her age group. We were so proud of her! Her sister, Giada, is looking forward to joining the runners next fall.
