Waaaahhhooooo!!!


I did it! My first 10K and crossed the finish line in just under and hour. I think it was 57 min. It was such a blur, I was so excited to be done. The weather was great and it wasn't too hot.

Trying not to laugh, I saw a guy on the side of the road barfing up his guts just after mile two ......... in my head I was thinking that some people take these fun runs WAY TOO SERIOUSLY... And MAN WERE THERE A TON OF PEOPLE THAT HAD SOME SERIOUS BODY ODOR. It was poisoning the much needed clean air that it was trying to inhale. :) Then at the end it couldn't have gotten any worse when all of the sweaty people were herded through a small area of fruit and bagels...... stuffy and sweaty mmmmmmm lets take a bite of that bagel. Your chances of getting someone elses sweat all over the bagel were so high that I used my hand to shield it..I wanted it pretty bad :)

We almost didn't make it. Thanks to Shane and his great driving skills (which happened to be the first time that I witnessed him passing others on the freeway) he got me to the start line with 2 min to spare. Shane was such a trooper. Last night he didn't get home from work until 11pm due to a Life Flight that he had to go on. Luckily it was only to Wyoming. So he was running off of 4 hrs of sleep.


Here are my cheerleaders at the finish line :)


I don't have to worry about Levi not eating his Veggies. He loves his carrots and celery!


This is Levi's favorite book. Isn't he so cute. I had to post it.

oh my gosh... Levi is so cute. I am loving the popped collar look.. WAY TO GO RAHNDI!! I didn't even know that you were going to run this. I am impressed. It would take me 4 hours... or probably more because I would never make it. Ha ha!

Congrats!! Dang, you have a cute kid. He is so big!! Can I babysit sometime? It doesn't really surprise me you ran a 10k. You have always been superwoman. Remember when could suck in your entire belly when you were prego? Sheesh.
