New Kidz on da Block

Twenty newcomers to the EE team joined twenty-five veterans for this annual running race in Loma Linda, CA. It's been a long time since we had this many kids at a single event, and it was a great warm-up for next week's Tinsel Tri, the first triathlon since our recovery from the theft of our trailer and equipment.
