We have another fun weekend planned...Man, October has sure been one busy month for us!
Tomorrow I am running my 3rd 5K, along with all my men! This is Karlton and Joel's 1st race. Karlton has been training hard for about a month, he so wants to beat me! ;0) Which he probably will because I have been training Joel for the last 2 weeks. I have to go his speed and then stop and walk when he needs too. He has the 1st mile down pat and does not have to stop, but the rest is pretty shaky! The most he has ran is about 2.7 with lots of walks and sit downs in between, while I finish my run. But this 5K is walk or run so he will be fine! He is doing great for a 9 year old!
All the pictures of the boys running is from their last (Home) race that was on Tues.. The season is winding down with the 5K on Sat. Except for Jordan he will have to go to practice next week and then go to the State finals on the 30th. The 1st 7 fastest boys and girls from the season will go to State. Jordan was 8th but they have to take alternatives. Incase someone can't run. So far 1 boys is not going so as of now, Jordan will be running.
The girls were there cheering on their brothers and for every boy on the team for that matter! lol.... Yes, Lilee is wearing a tutu to a sporting event ;0) She dressed herself that morning to go to Target! A girl has to look good ya know...lol
The boys coming in on the final stretch. Jordan's time was 22:26 and Josiah's was 25:53. Josiah had been having calf cramps for a couple of days and did not know if he would even be able to run. He started out limping but finished fine! His time was only off by about a minute! Great job boys!
This Sat. 5K is sponsored by the big boy's Cross Country Team. Yes, they are all running too, but they are not included in winning the prizes, thank goodness or no one would stand a chance! ( The top 3 men and women will get a prize.) The last 2 5K's I have done I was 1 - 2 away from a medal. So maybe this time....... ;0) All though.... I am not counting on it. I always plan for the worst and hope for the best! You never know what your body is going to do from day to day (well mine anyway!). Yesterday I ran 4.5 miles and did great! But today when I do my sprints, I may not! It all has to do with my asthma, energy, or some body part hurting!
Then after the race we will head out for a day of Halloween fun for the kids at the Boo Bash at my favorite shopping center. The kids always enjoy it. Even the big boys. ;0)
I hope you all have a fun weekend too!
