10 K's

A couple of months ago Tanya's dad Bart asked us if we wanted to run the 24th of July 10K that they do downtown that goes through the parade route early in the morning. He does it almost every year and he's a really good runner. We like running too so we decided it would be fun. We weren't able to prepare for it as much as we wanted, but we both did it and we're happy with our times! Here are some pics.

We had to wake up at 4:30 and pretty much wanted to die at that point. Winslow asked if he could run with us but he hadn't broken in his running shoes enough so we had to leave him at the house. Maybe next year!

The following pictures are us sprinting to the finish line.
Go Bart! I used him as my guide the entire time and tried to keep up with him - which wasn't easy!

At this point I was hating everything. I got a whiff of bacon smell the last little bit and almost hurled.

Right after the race - hash browns

Bart and I got around 48 minutes and Tanya about 56 I think? I don't remember. We just wanted under an hour so . . . mission accomplished!
Next Goal - some sort of triathlon, even if it's just a sprint one.

Nice going!! I'll join you on your triathlon...that is if it's a food triathlon...you know, traveling from place to place eating food. Sign me up for that one. Just make one of the stops cake, ok? That would really help me out.

Nice going on the under an hour! Way to go!!!
