Well, the official results are not in yet from United Way but the unofficial time was 24:20 (6 months post-baby) which beat last year's time of 26:25 (12 weeks pregnant see last year's photo). Still, I didn't feel like I ran a smart race. Too fast at the start, and I know better! I was beat out at the end by a running friend, Jessica, who received 2nd in our age group and I received 3rd. Lovely weather, a fun time, and a great first race "back." More photos to follow of this year's race.
Congrats to co-runners Teresa Thompson and Sam Ridenour both with excellent, strong times!
The highlight of the day, however, was watching Andrea and Nathan run in the 200 meter kids Fun Run. Their friends Ella, Ben, and Sophie came to join them. What a joyful time watching young legs and bright smiles race all the way to the finish! Kurt graciously cheered, took pictures, and carried a sleeping, happy Ethan in the K'tan carrier the whole time. He deserves a medal for that as Ethan is a huge 18 pounds. He'll be running with Daddy, Mommy, and siblings very soon.
We praise Jesus for health and strength! We are truly grateful and blessed.
