GREAT DAY GREAT RACE

Today was the Roof Dog Run 5K that Allie and I were doing. This would be her first race. We got to the race in plenty of time to pick up our packets. Don't you just love this shirt. It's the reason I signed up for the race !
We went back to the car and looked in our goody bags, yum chocolate in there, now I really like this race. Since we were early we pinned on our numbers and then waited.
WE lined up and off Allie went. All I saw was the back of her shirt and then nothing. As I was nearing the 1.5 mile we passed. "you're doing great " I yelled. Little did I know how great.

Big surprise! Allie took first place with a time of 28:59.


We were really happy.



I took 3rd with a time of 40:02. Grandpa took our picture when we got home.




Don't you love this trophy! We treated ourselves to a pedicure later in the day.


Miles run this week: 8:05
