This is, hopefully, the first of several posts to come this week. I have so much I want to write about but am limited in the time that I can sit comfortably at the computer without becoming lightheaded and dizzy.
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in a "Tidbit" post that Jessica and Gib were going to run a 5K (3.1 miles) on July 10th. They did it, and they did GREAT! (especially Jessica!) They ran around our neighborhood in the evenings to train, and Jessica often motivated her Daddy to get out there and run.
They weren't running to beat a certain time; they were just running for fun. Emma Grace and I were there to support them and take pictures. My friend and neighbor, Jenny, also came with her boys to support them...Thanks Jenny!
Before the race.
Waiting for the "go".
My road runners as they approached the finish line. Pardon the random stranger in front of Gib.
Crossing the finish line.
Worn out but proud.
There was an awards ceremony afterwards. Here's a pic of the kids while waiting.
We were SO PROUD of Jessica...she won second place in her age group for the fastest time! The girl who beat her was only 5 minutes ahead of her and was 14 years old. Jessica ran her hardest and didn't stop once.
WAY TO GO JESS!!!
She and Daddy in their souvenir t-shirts. Picture compliments of Emma Grace. I'm so proud of her for not cutting her Daddy's head off because Buddy just had to be in the picture!
Gib wants me to run this with him and Jessica next year. We'll see what kind of shape I'm in! He is planning to run a 10K (6.2 miles) on July 31st...GO GIB!
"See" ya soon!
