Members of Paonia’s Elegantly Attired Running Ladies (PEARL), pose prior to getting all sweaty in the annual Paonia Cherry Days 5k Run. Pictured are(left to right) Adeline DePuy, Rachel DePuy, Leah Morris, Jesse McGrath, Mary Groome, Lexi Wrich and Helen Groome. The ladies dress up for their Friday night runs, too.
The sky was overcast and a light drizzle seemed to bless the runners in the moments leading up to the start of last Saturday's Cherry Days 5k run. Just moments before racers took off from Apple Valley Park, the drizzle stopped, and the clouds held the heat at bay throughout the race.
