See them hugging in the middle? Awwwwww......so sweet.
My 61 year-old mom finishing the race! And my sister Lael about to cross the finish line.
This guy. He is absolutely the best. The support and encouragement and cheers and motivation he gives me is what helps me get my lazy butt out the door some days. I love him.
For real...those ladies are amazing.
Kristin for kicking everybody's trash and finishing in 1:38
April for being a Relief Society president, working full-time and still managing to race.
Daphne for totally embracing the runner's life and loving it. They finished together around 2:12.
Lael for even attempting to run with minimal preparation. And by minimal, I mean, like, she ran maybe twice before the race. Came across the finish line in 2:58.
My mom for still running and keeping up with her daughters. She finished in 2:35
And I guess I should throw myself in that group. My 6th baby is 4 1/2 months old. I had surgery to stop having babies in February, and I finished in 1:56. Pow!
Number 2 event of the day:
After we showered and got back to the house and as our bowels calmed down ((truth!)), we celebrated Blake's 7th birthday. He really is the sweetest kid and has eyes the same color as his daddy.
I looked for our stash of birthday candles and came up with an eclectic group, but two short of seven. So we improvised with matches. Again, being resourceful!
Carly has found her feet.
