Once again, long time no blog. I’ve decided the thing about blogging that overwhelms me is inserting pictures into my posts/taking enough pictures to insert into a post…

I love blogs that include a lot of pictures of what the person has been doing, eating, seeing, enjoying, etc. Especially eating. For some reason, this fascinates me. A close second is their work outs. Pictures of Garmins are awesome.

I don’t have a Garmin. Nor do I think I would have the wherewithal to take a picture of my wrist after running 5 torturous miles. But maybe that’s just me. Regardless, I love all that stuff. Just not so good at doing it myself. 

Here are some pictures of my family and me after we completed the BolderBoulder 10k in Colorado a few weeks ago.

We’re ready to pump. you. up.

My sister, me, my mom, and my brother. (Pre-race, of course)

Crossing the finish line! My sister was able to come out from Pennsylvania (where she lives and coaches college basketball) for a few days and signed up for the race last minute!

Sadly my nostrils are quite flared and my sister cut herself out of the picture. But we crossed holding hands. It was swell.

My dad couldn’t run because his knee has gone real bad, but he caught up with us afterward. It was a great day!

I really enjoyed running with my sister. In the past she has always been much, much fitter than I am. However, I was able to keep up with her this time. I know she could have run a bit faster if she wanted to, but she said our pace was decent and she didn’t feel like she was holding back too much.

We finished in 54:05, which is an 8:42 pace. I actually felt like I might have been able to finish a bit faster, but there were SO many people. SO SO many. We’re talking 70,000 runners. My anxiety spiked about a million percentage points on that run. I was rather annoyed by the slow people, which is douchey of me, but I couldn’t help it. I just wanted them to moooove. Regardless, fun race.

Great weekend!
