Saturday morning my friend Laura and I ran our first 5K together. We participated in the Race for the Cure My personal goal was to finish in less than 40 minutes and I did it! My unofficial time (using the stopwatch on my iTouch) was 39:20. Not the best time, but I have great starting place to improve from.
I will have pictures from the race photographer soon, but until then here are a few that troy took.
The start of the race. I'm on the other side of the lady in the pink cap. On the other side of me is Laura, representing with her maroon A&M top. You can barely see her.
After the race! We Did It! I'm very sweaty and my hair is WILD from the humidity. We celebrated with a yummy lunch at Olive Garden. I'm sure I consumed way more calories than I burned during the race. :-)
And of course.... the obligatory picture of Tori. The kids were great while I ran. They also enjoyed the bananas, apples, and oatmeal cream pies that were handed out after the race.
That evening we took a group of Brynne and Brooke's friends to the Galleria to ice skate to celebrate their birthdays. The plan for the corn maze was scrapped due to inclement weather. We couldn't have made a better decision. They had a wonderful time!
The entire group on our way in.
Everyone did great! In this picture there are actually a couple of exta girls. What can I say? They make friends quickly.
And nothing makes for a better ending to a great day than a little ICE CREAM!
I hope that everyone has a wonderfully blessed week!
