June 19 was their wedding day, and Libby Brown and Parks Thomson of Fraser decided that they would begin their special day by running the 2010 Habitat Hobble.

Libby and Parks and their entire wedding party – a total of 15 people – ran the Hobble sporting bright blue T-shirts reading “Breaking the Finish Line and Tying the Knot.” To top off the occasion, Parks was the first runner to cross the finish line.

“I have always loved to run, and I ran the Habitat Hobble last year,” Libby says. “I was looking forward to running it again this year, until I realized that my wedding fell on the same day. Then I decided to just go ahead and run. I was able to talk all my bridesmaids into running with me, along with a few relatives and my fiance.”

Thank you Libby and Parks for supporting the Habitat Hobble and letting us all share in the excitement of your day. Congratulations and many years of happiness to you!
