Fantastic family fun during the inaugural Husar’s Diamond Dash held Sunday at Enchantment in the Park.

Tim Zellmer, 23, of Elm Grove finished in first place (15:37) and Sue Miller, 41, of West Bend was the first woman to cross the finish at 19:23.

En Fuego got everyone warmed up with a bit of zumba to Mariah Carey prior to the start of the 5K which made three laps through the lights of Enchament in the Park.

On a side note:

– West Bend Police Chief Ken Meuler was spotted running the dash in shorts. The weather was pretty accommodating for Dec. 6. Meuler finished in 27:53; fourth in his age group.

-As the race continued the course became more beautiful as the lights of Enchantment grew brighter in the dark.

-My niece Audrey, 13, ran the race with me. She beat me by a solid four minutes, 25:15, to my 29:04. I remember years ago when Audrey and her siblings ran their first triathlon with me. Her sister Lucy swam, with a noodle. Audrey rode the tandem and we stopped at the top of a hill for a snack. (Because when you’re racing a tri it’s all about the snack.) And her 2-year-old brother Henry was still in a stroller and we tackled the run together.

-Money raised during the Diamond Dash benefited the Full Shelf Food Pantry.

– I overdressed (as usual) for the run. My niece exited the car and said, “No offense, but you look funny,” commenting on my spandex. A bit later she said, “No offense, I can see your bottom jiggling in those pants.” I got down to eye level and said, “No offense – the next time you say that, you ask me if I want a hamburger with that shake.”
