Family 5k

We ran our first 5k as a family this weekend at our favorite 5k (The Art City Days 5k). We had a lot of fun and I met my goal of jogging pretty much the whole thing (there was a VERY steep hill I chose to walk up, but the rest, we jogged!)

A great memory we will take from this race will be forgetting the handlebar to the jogging stroller!!! The race was literally seconds away from starting and we could not find the handlebar anywhere. My amazing husband looked up, smiled and said, "I guess I'll have to push it like this." And he did-the WHOLE way!
The race is sponsored by Nestle so they handed out ice cream bars at the end. Lucy thought this was great and she was also thrilled to be out of the stroller. She couldn't help but to dance with all the excitement!

Here we all are! David was such a trooper. At one point he sang to us during the race. He loves being in the stroller and just relaxes with his feet up.
Way to go team!

You guys are so cool! Jason might, but I have no desire to run a 5K. I'm lame, I know. :)

Ew ice cream after running 3 miles does not sound good to me! What a good hubby you have, that would be hard to push a stroller like that!
