Jingle Jog

This morning we got up early and went out to run another 5K. There was a ton of people this time and an accident on the freeway exit, so Tad just dropped me off up the road as I wasn't going to make it. He woke up with a headache so opted out of the race. I finally figured out where to pick up my number and then made it to the starting line just in time. It was very crowed though, so even after the gun, it took us a while to get going and find some space to run. That, and there being a lot more hills than last time, I didn't get the greatest time, but at least I finished and ran the whole way, so I was glad.
They had tons of activities and food afterwards, though the T-shirt was kind of tacky, at least now I have a long sleeve T-shirt to run in. SM had his first time on a pony which he enjoyed. The bounce house was another thing and he sat like that the entire time. But we finished out with popsicles and even though it was cold, that made the day for him.
GJ was just grumpy and hungry and cold, so he was happy when we finally left.

Hey, I recognize those running pants!! Glad you got to run the race...I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work!

Tacky Running shirts are the best because you know you will use them when every single article of clothing is dirty. Great Job on your run.

The first time Emma went in the bounce house she did the exact same thing - sat the entire time. But now the only way I can get her out is by crawling in there and carrying her out. Cute pony ride picture!

Dude I know I live too far away to jog with you ladies in the mornings (like I'm getting up that early anyway) but tell me next time you do one of these 5Ks! I'd love to tag along.

Oli doesnt normally sleep like that. Karli's crib dosnt have a bumper so thats why. He didnt even wake up when I moved him.
