Anniversary 5K

Carl and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last week. Our kids went to Indy for the weekend, so we had the whole weekend to celebrate. We ran our first 5K on Saturday! I placed 238th out of 584 runners. Although I wasn't 1st place I was able to run the entire time (hooray!) which was a 1st for me. It was an awesome experience and I'm sure it won't be our last race:)

We started the day off with these YUM! (sarcasm)

And the sky looked liked this! We did get wet but the sun was out by the end of the race :)

Special thanks to all my sponsors! I was able to meet our fundraising goal and earned a T-shirt!

And before I forget here is Isaac with his stitches. He smashed his finger in the garage. But he's all better now and almost all his stitches have dissolved.

And another one Abby took, because she thought he was cute sitting in a pile of dirty laundry playing the harmonica!

Oops! Forgot to say how SAD I was to hear about little Isaac's finger and stitches. I hope it's all healed up now!
