Like most of the country, it is hot hot hot here. The highs reached nearly 100 degrees this weekend. This was taken at the annual Fleet Feet Women's 5K festival along the lakefront. The race was a huge event with nearly 1000 female runners participating. Even at 9am, it was over 90 degrees out there. The exhaustion really showed.

** You may have noticed that the archived shots are mis-aligned with the old template. I am still in the long and tedious process of up-rezzing all 320 of the previous MRB shots. Once those are all done I'll be able to upgrade the entire site. Right now it's only the homepage that uses the new template. Thanks for your patience as I continue the upgrades to the site.
