Mudbug 5K

So glad it is Friday! It was a long week and I am SOOOO looking foward to spending the summer home with my babies! We have a trip to Vegas scheduled for the first weekend in June, then we are headed to Disney World with the kids, my mother and brother-in-law and his girlfriend, and in July we are going to Fort Walton Beach for a week with my parents. All of this is taking place while we are remodeling and moving into a new house. I can already tell that the summer will FLY by!

We headed to Shreveport last night after work and had a great time running the annual Mudbug 5K. I hadn't raced a 5K in 4 years, but Sarah and I finished 1-2 with me running 20:39(my watch was faster than the recorded time so I am going with it!) and Sarah ran 21:12. Maybe not my best time, but a lot has happened in the last 4 years! so I was pleased with my effort. Shelley Parker joined us and she did great as well. She runs with another group that runs a little later than we do, so it was nice to have her go with us. And of course mom's running group brought over at least 10 runners, so there was a large group representing Ruston.

Looking forward to a 3 day weekend and relaxing a bit! Enjoy the pictures:

Yeah! Great job on your win - no matter the time, that is awesome!! And to win something useful like a gift certificate is always the best.
