Of 5Ks and Baseball Games

May 8, 2012

On Saturday, Mom and I ran the May Day 5K. Now this is a really fun race. It’s short and fast, with very few hills. Some or all of our family members run it every year. This year, just Mom and I did it, and Daddy came along to support us! :)

To my disappointment, I didn’t set a PR (personal record). I started out too slow, and couldn’t quite make up for it at the end. But it felt really good, and I think my training paid off.

On the home stretch, Daddy stood on the curb and cheered me on! :)

Mom flashed by a few seconds later, looking strong! :)

I finished in 25:25, and Mom’s time was just a few seconds later. I got second in my age division, and Mom got third! We both received pool passes to our local aquatic center. They will come in very handy this summer! :) It was a great race.

Later that day, we went to a Springfield Cardinals baseball game. Daddy’s work pays for our family to go each year, and we look forward to it!

The snacks were tasty, too! :)

The Cardinals ended up winning the game! It was a great Saturday.

Happy Tuesday! :)

    What fun! It sounds like y’all had a great run, and a good time at the game! I have yet to attend a Cardinals game; football and basketball is more to my liking, but it looks fun, all the same! ;)

    How fun! Congratulations, Brookie and Mrs. Noble on your time and placing! You both look wonderful. Baseball is always so much fun and I’ll bet that lemon ice was really (like REALLY!)good. :) Was the weather hot?

    Thanks for posting!
    To God be the Glory,
