Syndey and Karen at NCRC Half Marathon 
Sydney Jarrett ran the NCRC Invitational half marathon in 2:16 in the 100% humidity.  It's that time of the year again where we all miss winter and spring and look forward to fall and the cooler temperatures and lower humidity.

Sydney also did the Doughman on May 25th.  The doughman is a four team in a relay format with each team member performing an individual eating + athletic leg culminating in a final team eating + spring leg to the finish.  The race comprises 1 bike leg, 1 aquatic activity, and 2 run legs.  Sydney's team dressed as farmers since the beneficiary this year was the Durham Hub Farm.  Sydney had the final leg.  She ate a brat then ran 2.1 miles in full jean short costume extravaganza.  It took her 21 minutes to do it.
