'Hot dogs' find way to 'relish' support for friends

A group of friends dressed as hotdogs to make sure their friends who were running in the race were able to find them on Tuesday. Shown above (from left) are Brendon Brus, Kyung Choi, Melonie Millett, Jared Kelley and Katie Steffens.

For the participants competing in the Mount Marathon Race, it is relatively easy for their friends to pick them out of a crowd as they work their way down Fourth Ave. Finding friends in the sea of faces isn't as easy for the runners.

Fortunately for a couple of runners this past weekend, that wasn't the case since their friends stood out ... as hot dogs.

"We're here to support our friends in the race and we wanted to make sure they could see us," said Jared Kelley, who traveled to Seward from Chicago. "They're sure to see us this way."

Katie Steffens agreed.

"Our friends are kind of weiners, so we thought this would be the way to make sure they could see us. They (their friends) told us to relish the chance we had so we are."

Kelley and Steffens were joined by Brendan Brus, Kyung Choi and Melonie Millett.

"We're just having fun supporting our friends," said Steffens. "For once, we really do have the best buns around, literally."
