The Not so Human Race

Ok, yes, they are human, but I couldn't think of another riveting title. Below you will find pictures from the Father's Day Four that David participated in with our friend, Jeff, and Juan, who is a guy David has met through his job. They have become friends and enjoy getting into spiritual/Bible discussions. The little piggies that you see in the bottom right hand of this pic belong to our fifth child! I like the blurry image of the old folk running behind the guys. I was really surprised and rather impressed at the amount of older folks that participated, and did quite well, if I do say so myself! Yes, David was one of them. hee hee. just jokin'. though one rather old guy smoked my loving husband!

Here are David and Juan...

Hanging in there with a happy smile. Go David! He finished the four mile spectacle in 36 minutes...he did 2.5 miles in 25 minutes, running with a friend, and when he realized that he was behind his usual pace, he ran ahead. I still don't get why people do this for fun. seems quite torturous to run on the road...David felt it that night and for the next few days. We just aren't as young as we used to be. waa waa

The church that hosted this event had a little kids race...Levi wanted to run (center)...they gave each kid a little medal...pretty cool!

Hopefully, tomorrow, I will have some pix of the deckage to post...I spent some time staining today, finishing the lower deck. Man, it looks sweet! Man, is my body achy and miserably sore!

Otherwise, that's all I got...I'm outta here! hope y'all enjoy the pix of my running folks. And don't look for any pix of me running any races...I've got better ways to waste my time. :)

Outta here! Much love!

You know what? We should get together several times a week and walk!

Wait a minute. With the price of gas, maybe we should just walk to each other's houses. That would take, what - a day or two?

Good job Dave! I have never been a runner, even as a child. I admire those that can/do.

Run, Forrest, RUN!

Great pics! I love Levi running. Thank goodness there wasn't a plane overhead to distract him! :) We should plan on running the drumstick dash this year...ha ha. Maybe not finishing last can be a goal...xoxo
