Running is a family event!

Luke and Kylie got in on the running excitement. Kylie's race was 200 meters which she smoked! She had such a great time running and is already wanting to sign up for another race. She was so cute, she wanted to hold my hand as we crossed the finish line. After crossing it she held my hand high and shouted "woooo hoooo!"

Luke ran a 100 meter dash which as you see, he was in the front of the pack!

Can I tell you that Disney just does it right. The kids won finisher's medals which they treasure! We hope to do a lot more of these in the future!

Running the race...

Well, much to my reluctance, my fellow runner Sarah prompted me to blog about the race. So this blog post is for you!!! Let me first start by saying that I would have never done it without the encouragement and support from you!!!! Thank you my booty kicker trainer! LOL!

The atmosphere of a race is something you really can't describe until you have done it. The nerves are jumping throughout your body and all you want to do is get the start over with! Everyone is bouncing around, talking and just enjoying the moment before you are off on a wild adventure.

This is the second race I have ever done and now I think I am hooked. We ran a 15K which is 9.3 miles and suprisingly it went by quickly! Here is a picture in MGM Hollywood around mile 7?


Then me at the finish line. I look like a big dork now but I was happy that it was over!


Anyone wanna run?
