So, last weekend Travis and I ran a 5K. That converts over to 3.1 miles. Of course, we didn't win, but we had a good time and got exercise. :) The race took place in Fish Creek, up north. I LOVE that little town. It's pretty touristy, but there are cute shops to look in. Luckily, the weather was pretty good, too. It was in the morning and cooler, not so humid. I don't know how many people ran/walked in the race. I know on one of the pictures, someone placed 150, so at least 150 people. Travis placed 14 in his age group and 61 overall. I placed 7 in my age group and 64 overall. We were just happy to finish! :) We're looking into more runs to enter. It's a fun thing to do together.

Another exciting thing (depending on who you ask) is school started! YIPPPEEE! The girls are not that excited, but they don't mind their classes and are both happy to see their friends. Also, they are both doing dance team and band (Anisa continues to play her flute and Sara's playing the bass drum). We'll be going to lots of activities this year between them playing in parades and sporting events and dance competitions.

Besides those things, life has just been getting back to normal after summer craziness. The weather is turning Fall-like, into the 40s at night and into the low 70s during the day. I LOVE it! Hope all is well with all our friends and family!

You go girl! You are looking like one hot mama! I think it's so great that you did that - my dh would love for me to run with him, but I'm such a baby. Your girls are look beautiful and happy, too!

WooHoo -- Congratulations! I'm not a runner, but I must admit, a 5k does sound fun!

Right on! Congratulations Cindy (and Travis too)! I'm so proud of you!

I did a .5k recently. From the sofa, to my car, from the Safeway parking-lot to the marshmallow aisle to the cheese case to cracker aisle, back to my car and back to the sofa. Whew. I'm pooped. I don't know how you do it!

I don't think you should run unless you're being chased. However, you look fantastic and I am proud of both of you! I agree with Happy Zombie... sometimes the errands in my day is enough to wear me out!
