Chat Room Runners tackle the Vancouver Marathon, May 3, 2009

The runners headed up to Vancouver again in 2009. Leni, Melissa, Don, Dianne, Dian and Bob relax the night before the race at Pat's place near Vancouver

 

In the recovery area after the race. 'Dianne in Dallas' ran the 8K and Melissa and Don ran the half marathon

 

After the race we met with Kathy Barnard from Vancouver and her family. Kathy is a stage IV melanoma survivor. She has formed the Save Your Skin Foundation
Her sister Rosemary, behind, recently completed the Boston Marathon

 

Joan (Warp) and Leni chat it up over brunch after the race. Leni came all the way from Michigan!

Dian plays the banjo on the deck at Camano Island

 

We had a fire the night before everyone went home. Dian switched to guitar playing.

 

Is this possible? (The banjo and guitar are already in the trunk!)
