Cotton Row Run 2014

Some of us got up early this morning (4:30 is just not right once your summer break has started) and went downtown Huntsville to run the cotton row 10k. 
It was a good run, but boy it was "hilly" and hot!
Here we are before, still very perky... ;-)
Heute frueh sind wir sehr bald aufgestanden (4:30 in den Ferien ist einfach nicht ok) und sind in die Innenstadt von Huntsville gefahren um den cotton row 10 Kilometer Lauf mitzumachen.
Es war eine guter Lauf, aber die Strecke geht bergauf, bergab und dem Ende entgegen war es einfach schon viel zu heiss. 
Hier sind wir vor dem Rennen, alle noch frisch und munter... ;-)

 After the race, a bit disheveled and tired. :-)
Nach dem Rennen, wir waren alle ein bissl muede. :-)


  1. I saw another set of pictures concerning the Cotton Row Run 2014 from a blogging friend who also lives there in Harvest. Some of her relatives actually ran also! I loved seeing your pictures, Anke! It tickles me that Hannah got a friend involved...and the pictures of the two of you are SO good. The last picture you both look as refreshed as you did in the first picture of the two of you! It is hard to believe that Hannah is taller than you! Good for you for getting out there and doing something you enjoy doing!

  2. I think running a 10 K is a great way to spend the day. Disheveled? No my dear, you are drop dead gorgeous!

  3. I think you look beautiful before and after :) I am in awe at your running in the heat!!
