Pictures from the Finish Line!

30 Sep

As promised (although a little late) here are some pictures from the Montreal Half Marathon that Dulce, Dustin and Stephen ran last Sunday. It turned out to be a beautiful day for a run, the rain held off and it was sunny and cool.

Lauren’s Metro/subway trip went very well, I held and walked her down the stairs while Auntie Marlena and Grandma carried her stroller down the escalator. Lauren Loved riding the metro around, the warm air and vibration sent her into a peaceful naps 🙂

Although they didn’t finish in first place (or even 1ooth :)) they were proud to show off their shirts to all the passerby’s spreading awareness about Lauren and her friends journeys with Krabbe disease. Way to go guys, you did awesome!

And while they were running, we were navigating the metro…


Lauren has her ticket and can’t wait to meet everyone at the finish line!
