We Finished

Well, we all raced and we all finished. I'm sorry it has taken this long to write this post, but I needed to collect the pictures from the Allens and Whitfields cameras before I could put the slideshow together.

The trip was great! We took the bus from Lusaka to Livingstone and then crossed the border into Victoria, Zimbabwe. We stayed at a little camping lodge called Rest Camp. It was a rather expensive place to stay, just kidding (only $11 per person per night). The girls stayed in a 6 person dorm and the guys stayed in a 12 person dorm.

The race was well organized. We registered the Saturday before and raced the next day. The course was a different story. It was racked with hills and with temperatures getting into the 80's, it made for a difficult race. But no complaints. We had a blast!

Thank you for everyone who supported us in this race for Zambia's children. So far, as a team, we have raised over $8,000 towards kids camps at Ciyanjano. If you are one of those who supported this cause, thank you, thank you, thank you. If you were someone who was interested in supporting the event, but still haven't donated. It's still not too late.

We really had a good time running for a good cause. We're already planning for next year's 2nd annual Kilometers For Kids / Victoria Falls Marathon. Thank you again!
