Back from the races...

This past Saturday, me, Griff & Bek, and Thatcher, along with several friends, participated in a local 5 & 10k walk/run race. The race began at 7:30 in the morning! Some of my family and I did this last year and enjoyed it. Now, before you begin to think that I walked/ran over 6 miles, I have to confess, I only did the 5k! *smile* I wasn't in the best of shape, which is a sad thing, but it's something I need to stick with. Anyway, here are some pictures from the event! By the way, Thatch got second place in his division!!

Good job! I would like to run a 5k...but not this fall. :) My husband ran cross-country in college, and still loves running. I guess it has finally worn off on me. :)

Was this run in Leavenworth?

Abbi, yes I know! I'm not a huge runner...okay...not one! :-) A couple years ago, my brother and sister and I went jogging a tiny bit and I really liked it. Do you like to walk?

Thanks Sara! Glad you stopped by!! Please come again, although, wedding preparations are probably going to be in full swing!

Thank ya kindly, Tori! Have you ever done one before? You really ought to try doing a race sometime. It's a good experience! You get a shirt, a number (just like those Olympians!) and a little goody bag. :-)

Hey Megan! Actually, no, the run was held in Weston. It's on the main street for the very first part of the race and then goes off into a paved "trail". Have you ever participated in a race before, Megan? Like I told Tori, you ought to!
