When I got up Sunday morning last week, race day, I felt so many mixed emotions. Up until the Boston Marathon bombings, I had anticipated the Sun Run for so long that I was excited for weeks. And then to be there to race with my sister, who was inspired by me to take up running, in her 1st race and a goal race, made me so happy. Plus to be in Vancouver to visit family was really icing on the cake. But now...it was with an excited mood tinged with sadness that my sister and I put on our blue and yellow running outfits for Boston.

Then we made our way to our corral on Georgia Street. It was in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery, here's a signpost that was in our corral:
|The signpost - tells you everywhere except here|

|Finally, at the start line!|
Here we're a few places we came across during our 10k run:
|Lions Gate Bridge. Almost at Stanley Park at this point.|
|Burrard Street Bridge: I've always wanted to take a pic of this structure.|
There were a lot of signs and people on the sides cheering us on. The white sign in the middle particular was very relevant for our situation: it said "GO RANDOM STRANGER GO".

Slow and steady, we finally made it to the finish line, hooray!!
|It was nice to see the finish line at last.|

Would I do it again next year? I hope so!!
