Speedy Runners

Last Saturday my Mom and Tony ran in a 10k in Bartlesville called Run the 'Ville. A friend of Tony's signed him up because he had a free entry and since my Mom is training for her marathon in June, she was ready to run that distance too. Unfortunately we had some really bad weather that day. I think it was about 40 degrees, cloudy, windy, and misty rain. Cole and I went, but ended up spending the entire time in the car because of the weather. The good news is that Tony and my Mom both won their age groups! Tony also placed 2nd overall. His time was 40:42 (or something like that...Tony will change it if I'm not right!). My Mom also surprised herself and came in under an hour at 59:49. Here they are later that day once we came home with their trophies!

I have to say, it was pretty hard to just sit in the car during a race and not be able to run. Only 4 more weeks now until I can start again. Tony has signed me up for a 5k race the weekend after my 6 week check up. I won't have much time to get back in shape for that, but I'll just do the best I can and enjoy it!
