Phew - it's been a whirlwind of two weeks around here! I'm about to get my head above water here in a matter of hours (thank you, holiday weekend!), but until then.....here are some snapshots from the kiddos this past weekend at the Firecracker 5K & One-Mile. This event is the first in mama's race coordinating duties for Hutch Rec Race Series. One down....two more to go in 12 weeks' time! (breathe in, breathe out.....breathe in, breathe out....)
Mackie was thrilled to participate in her first race that mommy was in charge of! She ran the one-mile fun run event with my boss's wife (thanks, Andrea!) while Jack and I were running around like crazy, wrapping up the events. Mackie's favorite part of the race was Miss Andrea letting her jump in every single puddle along the course. It poured right before the event (and after as we were cleaning up) but turned into a beautiful and cool morning for running and walking! We boasted our highest Firecracker numbers to date, an increase of more than 100 from 2013. Go, Hutch Rec!
Here are some snapshots from the morning. It was great seeing my favorite firecrackers and also reuniting with some sweet friends who joined us for the race.
Off to consume more coffee as I wrap up a publication deadline before the July 4th holiday. I can't WAIT for a three-day weekend filled with all things family, fireworks, fun, fitness, and food!
