A warm day greeted participants in the Blue Diamond Almonds Shamrock’n Half Marathon held Sunday in West Sacramento. Above, volunteer Brittani Tang, 16, of Sacramento hands out medals to finishers inside Raley Field at the end of the race. At right, Anna Cuong finds the weather a challenge: “It’s too hot; I’ve had better days,” she said. Below from left, Lynelle Follett, 67, Mikel Gordon, 62, and Carolyn Fischer, 65, all of Sacramento cheer on their friend Alice Chazen, 63, as she crosses the finish line. Fischer said they all walked 65 miles in Hawaii this year for her 65th birthday and they are now looking forward to running in the half marathon next year.
