I hope you are all enjoying your independence this weekend. The Fourth of July is even more fun when it falls on a weekend! My whole big crazy family is here for my grandma’s 95th birthday party, so we are having lots of fun.
Friday night we ran a 5k in the next town over. I ran a horrible race, over 2 minutes over my P.R., geez. I’m not sure if it’s because my friend Myra wasn’t there to pace me or if it’s because I am that out of shape or if it’s because I was fighting off a little cold (that usually doesn’t matter). I never got to the “wheezing” point which tells me I wasn’t maxed out. I just couldn’t get myself to push it. Oh well. I need to race more I guess.
They had a mile kids’ fun-run and Campbell ran her first mile! It took her 13 minutes but she ran the whole way and didn’t complain. (I just looked and at age 5 Evan ran a mile at 10:30. Because comparing your kids is what parents do, right?) Here she is before the race.
They’re off running!
She held her dad’s hand most of the way. I didn’t catch a picture but this one was on the city’s webpage:
Chris, Evan and I ran the 5k and no pics of that because we were all running! Last night, we had a hog roast and fireworks with my family. Fun times!
