Salem Days & And The 5k

August 9, 2014

It was an early morning for us all. It is Salem Days this week (I love Salem days… All week long there has been activities). This morning was the 5k and kids mile. The girls ran the mile race…

IMG_0886.JPG They did so good. It’s fun to watch them run these races and enjoy them. Corom and I ran the 5k right after. He pushed all 4 kids in the stroller. That is a tough race pushing a stroller!

IMG_0888.JPG My oldest came in ahead of the other 3 and took 3rd in her age group. My 2nd child took 1st in her age group; 3rd child took 1st in her age group; and 4th took 4th… Corom placed 3rd in the stroller category and I placed 1st overall in the 5k.

IMG_0889.JPG I felt really good today. On this course (and I have ran this race at least 7-8 years in a row) and I have never broken 19 minutes on this course… Today I ran 18:39.7. I was pleasantly surprised! I ran a mile and a half warm up (1/2 a mile was with my youngest) and then ran about 4 miles after… We (Corom, the girls and I) stayed for the city breakfast (which was free) and then stayed longer to watch the parade.

IMG_0909.JPG Have I mentioned that I love parades! πŸ˜‰ We walked around the park/ball fields. There were many booths set up with venders for food, games, and stuff to sell. They had karaoke there, too. My youngest (for the 1st minute) went up by herself and sang “Let it Go” from frozen. My 2nd child got up the nerve to go sing it with her. πŸ™‚ So cute!

IMG_0910.JPG The 2 younger girls got in trouble and had to stay home for the evening, while I took the 2 older ones to the cities Pageant. (Not a beauty pageant…). It was very entertaining. My 2 girls “walked” across the stage for part of their program. They wanted all the runners for the race to be noticed. It was a nice program they put together. After was the firework show.

IMG_0911.JPG It has been a long day… But a good one. I can’t wait for next years Salem Days. πŸ˜‰
