3 weekends ago we did the "Skirt Chasers" race. It was a really (( HOT!!!!)) fun race. Just a 5k. The girls got kilt looking running skirts since it was at the Scottish Festival. And they also got a 3 minute head start in front of the men. So... That's why they call it the Skirt Chasers. Such a fun race. We both got a PR on this race, even though it was so hot, and so hard!
|Jess and I before the race.|
|Kat, Me,Chera, and Jess after the race.. They came to cheer us on! (By the way they are ELITE runners!!)|
|I can see the finish line!!!!!|
|Jessica and her friend who ran to pace her--|
|One cute boy, and I before the race.... This is before he killed me in time!|
|We are comparing bellies. She's 5 months preggo... I just wanted to make a big belly ;-)|
|The girls acting silly.... Pose!|
|"Can't catch this"|
We also did the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure the following weekend. My friend Melissa works for the Cancer Treatment Center and this is a huge race for her. She also is the daughter in law of a survior....On top of those things, she has been training for her first post baby 5k.
So I got us some matching shirts...Sparkly and pink of course!
And made us some ribbons for our hair!
|I also made Gail (Mel's mother in law) a flower with a sparkly ribbon inside of a pink rose to wear|
|The girls...And Liam!|
|Almost to the finish! We can see it.....|
|Her goal was to finish in 32 minutes. She finished in 30:55.|
|We had a little "fan" waiting for us at the finish line!|
|The Punk Sparklers--- That's our team name!|
This past weekend, Scott ran the ZOO run! It was a perfect day for a 10k!
I just went and supported him.
He did an amazing job! He ran a 10k (6.3 miles) in 53:30! That's wicked fast!!
|Here he comes!!! Looking strong!|
-- There are several races coming up in the fall that we are excited to do!
Here are also a few random snap shots (obviously taken with my phone, since I don't carry a CAMERA while running) from some of my runs. Some things take my breathe away, and I know that taking a picture will never portray what I actually see, but it's the memory!
|GOOOOOOOOD MORNING!! I beat the sun up.|
|Sunset. We run this a lot at Melissa's place.|
|We got a random and SUDDEN down pour one night.. And ended up with this! Which eventually turned in to a double rainbow.|
|Meeting Jeanean and breaking up her 22 mile run so that she doesn't have to do it alone! We're switching off.|
|time to pop a bean or 3.|
|Shelly and I playing in the water fountain! It was a steamy one!!!|
