Race Report: Mercer Island Half

The other weekend I ran the Mercer Island Half Marathon, and the boys did the kid's race.  The boys were so nervous building up to the race, but SO proud at the end.  I love seeing that happiness - don't care about the time or place, the smile is what it's all about.

Pics of the start ...  and post finish.
 Ribbons!

 I ran a 1:34:38 chip time and landed 5th in my age group and 104th overall (out of nearly 5K people).  I realized, though, I have a lot of work to do before the Big Sur Marathon.

Weekend roundup: ABCs

This weekend we had an Auction, (t-)Ball, and Carkeek park (aka, beach in Ballard).  At the end of the weekend we needed another weekend - you know those? 

The auction was for our boys' Kindergarten (for the entire school actually) and was quite a scene.  I felt like we were at a frat party with people we didn't know for a lot of it, but all in it was a good time.  Here's Matt and I with a creepy light picture on the way home from the auction:


T-ball started up Saturday and I can't believe what we're in for. The boys were so happy - they were reunited with all their buddies from pre-school and got to run all morning.  What could be better?!
Both Saturday and Sunday we hit up the beach.  Cole and I have given ourselves a challenge to fill up a jar with seaglass so Cole is always on quite the mission at the beach.  Wilson just wants to climb and play in the waves.  Always a great time.
