Memorial Day

May 26, 2014

I started of my day with a Memorial 10k fun run. Amber, Rachelle and I met up at the race and ran a 2 mile warmup. It was a beautiful, warm morning… The course was very hilly and we were able to run through the cemetery. Loved it.

I was able to pull off a 37:44 (a 6:04 pace) and was happy with it. I will admit that I wanted to run a faster time but with the course being a tougher one and my legs still a little tired from last week, I was ok with it. I was able to take 1st in woman’s but they didn’t do awards because all the money/donations went to the Military. After the 10k, we went on a 2 mile cool down.

I came home and we did a lot of yard/house work…

I love mowing the lawn! After the work was done… Well when we were done… Some friends came over and we went for a bike ride to the cemetery.

I was impressed that our girls rode the entire time without help. It was about 2 1/2 miles there and then back. We did hang out for a little while. It was a very peaceful experience.

On the way home, we had a couple of wipe outs (but the kids jumped right back on their bikes) and of course, Corom got a flat…

It was quite the sight having him ride on the handle bars of the guy pulling a trailer with kids in it. 🙂
We stopped off at a neighbors for a little while (and Corom had to make sure he beat all the kids in tether ball)…

And then headed up to some friends of ours for a barbecue (the Martins).

Today was a good day! Love spending time with family and friends!
