Honeymoon Race #1: Pineland Farms Trail 50Km

 The day after the wedding, we drove up to Maine to meet some friends the night before our favorite ultra, the Pineland Farms 50km. We did this race last year and loved it so much that we knew we'd come back even though it was scheduled two days after our wedding. (Yes, we made matching 'Just Married' shirts.)

The race director is AWESOME. We had met him last year, and seen him at other races throughout the course of the year and we told him our story, how we were getting married right before the race and then driving up for it. He surprised us with this huge wedding cake with our photo on it, and he also had us interview with the local news. (link here: http://www.wmtw.com/video/28063576/detail.html) Also, a HUGE thanks to race sponsor Merrell, who gave us such a nice wedding present!

Post-race with our finisher's cowbells. We had so much fun, we just took it easy and ran with some friends who had come up to run the race with us and continue the wedding celebration.

This shows just how big the cake really was. 

More honeymoon pics to come!
