Awesome 3000

We’ve taken photos at Awesome 3000 for seven years now! (20112012201320142015, and 2017!) This time I shot it all by my lonesome, as Becky was taking some long-overdue mental health days.

If you’re not familiar, the Awesome 3000 is a fundraising race for the Salem-Keizer Education Foundation, and has been a big deal in Salem for over 30 years. There’s a festival atmosphere, and though the race is the centerpiece of the day, there are lots of other activities as well, including an ambulance!

Lucy graduated to the 2k run this year, which is over a mile! She did fantastically, and enjoyed handing out medals before and after, like she does every year, since her grandfather Chuck has been volunteering at this event for over 20 years.
