One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

A Race to Remember

Kara and I ran the Mercer Island 5K on Sunday morning. I was so happy to be able to experience Kara's first race with her!! Here we are pre-race:Kara did a great job. It was a hilly course --- and she was strong and pushed through to the finish (even the last .25 miles was uphill!!). I think there will be more races in her future. Who knows... maybe next year she will want to join the "destination half marathon girls weekend" crew with me!!!
Here we are back home after the race: We went out for a celebration dinner on Sunday night. Yummy seafood was had by all --- shrimp & fries for the kids, seafood fettucini for Travis, and Kara and I enjoyed crab legs :)

We were all sad to see Kara leave. It was so great to have her around --- makes me wish she lived closer!! I am hoping she has another work meeting on the west coast next year -- maybe we can make it a yearly visit!!!

I had an awesome time. I also posted a response to your shopping comment on my blog :)

I definitely will run some more races and would love to work up to a half marathon!!

From my understanding, as long as I am leading the same group or another PD group, I'll have yearly visits (at least) to CA, so a stop in Seattle is PERFECT!! Even if I don't, we definitely will have to work something out. Don't tell Travis, I think I am going to pack you in my suitcase next time so you can move closer to me :)

Lots of Hugs xoxoxoxoxo
