Running of the Elvises (or is it Elvii)

Friday, August 12, 2011

Yesterday, we actually went downtown for a 5K that hubby was running. It was so much fun, even though I couldn't run. The race, Elvis is Alive, is apparently a long-time tradition, and there were tons of Elvis-runners.

Seeing them all line up at the starting line was great, they put all the people who actually dressed up at the front of the pack

The first Elvis to finish, I love the cape!

The light as we walked to catch the bus home was amazing - I love the downtown cityscape.

Anyhow, physical therapy is going well, I did some jogging intervals Wednesday and this morning and my knees were pain free during the exercise and only slightly puffy afterwards. It makes me really happy to think that soon I will be able to be part of the pack in the races instead of the photo-taking spectator.

Have a great weekend - I'm definitely planning of taking advantage of the slightly cooler weather to be out and about a bit.

    Looks like this was downtown Chicago - I never knew they did a run like this and I've lived in the city or suburbs for most of my life! What fun this must have been! We try to get to Elvis night at the White Sox game but we missed it this year. We'll have to try to get to the Elvis run next summer - thanks for sharing!!
