July 11 Wheelchair

July 11 Wheelchair, originally uploaded by NedraI.

Today was the Boilermaker. It's a 9.3 mile road race that brings athletes from all over the country and even world to participate. It's a race for the elite runners as well as your average Joe. It's a huge community event. Yesterday there was a walk as well as a variety of fun runs for the kids.This morning there was also a 5K race. It seemed strange that none of us were participating in the actual race this year. However, my son was working the Little Ceaser's tent handing out cookies to the participants and the rest of us were near the finish line cheering on the runners which is an important part of the event as well.

There's also a division for wheelchair athletes. These men and women are a true inspiration.
