A 5k and State | Mommy and Me Monday | 744th ed


It was another running filled weekend. And once again, nobody is surprised.

Saturday morning, we were up early for a local 5K. It was actually cool in the morning which was a nice treat.

The oldest two were getting a little extra sleep and then headed off to the state track meet!

One more picture at the starting line before go time.

Admittedly, none of us were ready when the gun went off. They told us it was 5 minutes and then it was only 2 and they didn’t stay ready, or anything. It was a few seconds of chaos and dodging people, but we made it through.

Mr. Serious ran solo and beat his time at this same race last year by about 30 seconds.

E ran with some of her friends and they decided to take it easier.

B and I ran together and both had about 20 seconds off our last 5k time and almost 5 minutes off our last time at this same race. Pretty amazing!

Then it was a quick trip home to rinse off, put on dry clothes, get some friends and make the hour drive to state.

Last year, our girls 4x800m relay was last, and this year, they were on the podium! Super proud of them and their medal.

N was an alternate and I failed to get any group pictures of us or my two state team girls in a picture together which really bums me out, but I can’t go back and take one, now:(

Whew…most of us are in our 2 weeks of running rest. (Some of us will probably get antsy around 7-10 days, so we’ll see!)

That means, next week’s picture won’t feature running!!
