The Memphis Botanical Garden’s Facebook profile posted several photographs they took at the Daffodil Dash 3-Miler. Here are a couple featuring some fabulous folks I know!
Had a blast at the dash! My nice Shelby, her friend Kayla, my sister and mom got up extremely early and traveled hours to come to the race. Shelby and Kayla ran it with Bobby and I. Shelby got 2nd in her age group and Kayla got 3rd in hers.
Then at the starting line I ran into Keshia! I ran with her for about the first 1/2 mile of the race, but she was too fast for me. She received 2nd in her age group.
After I met up with Bobby (who got 2nd in his age group), he said he’d spotted Ashley coming around the garden. She had came to the race too (though she’d gotten a late start)!
Inside I saw Deepika, my coworker. This was her first 5k, and I was glad she made it out.
Inside I also saw Stefan, who received 1st in his age group and was the only one I personally knew to bring home the coveted Daffodils (everyone else just got some other random yellow flowers in a vase – still pretty though).
PS: Here is how Bobby ran the race, as told by his Garmin Forerunner
What’s that little yellow flower popping out everywhere? Time for the Daffodil Dash! Bobby and I are signed up for this race. My niece and her friend are driving into Memphis to run it and a coworker of mine is walking it. Now lets just hope the forecasted rain is just a little sprinkle.
