Saturday, March 10th – the 3rd Annual Nun Run 2012 – was a day to remember!  From beautiful weather to the 1,135 participants, the day was perfect from START to FINISH.

Jeff Fuentabella – our faithful photographer – uploaded his 1100 photos.

Also, check out the revamped Nun Run site – with more photos, race results, and more.  A race day video, as well as a shadow runner (y’all are awesome) video is in the works.  Look for that by early next week.

Below is a sampling of the photos and a glimpse into some of the ‘unforgettable’ Nun Run moments!

Doug Barry was a HOOT!  He got up there and led everyone in a pre-race warm up!

Jumping jacks all around!

This little girl loves her country – hand over the heart for the National Anthem 🙂

Gotta love the hustle!

Our 10K Nun Runner (and Nun Run Organizer – she’s amazing) – Sr. John-Mark!

She makes running look fun!

Could this be ASU and NAU smack talking a bit?  All in good fun, I’m sure – because these are two of the friendliest people I know…and Fr. Matt is standing there to referee!

Loving the Nun Run Race Shirts: THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT GROW WEARY

Nothing so sweet as crossing the finish line

Run Brittany, Run!

Some of the kids from “Chances for Children” organization – who brought over 25 kids to this years event.

YAY – Fr. Chad King!  Thank you for coming Father!

Is that John Travolta – No, it’s just Fr. Mark Mary stayin’ alive!  With our very own Sr. Marie St. Paul!!!
Photo, anyone?  It was suggested that if we charge a buck a photo, we could begin construction on the monastery now 🙂

Somebody is a ‘sore’ winner!  Classic Photo…

The winners of the School Challenge for 2012: ASU!!!

Our very close runners up: NAU – who traveled all the way from Flagstaff, AZ to participate!

Happy Nun!

Fr. Matt Lowry (NAU) and Fr. John Muir (ASU) who took part in the Chaplains Challenge.  Fr. Muir finished 10 seconds ahead of Fr. Lowry.  Should be a stiff competition again next year!

Great crowd!

More ‘Great Crowd!’

And just one more ‘Great Crowd!’
