Pumpkin Fun Run

This past weekend Aly had the chance to run her first race. She has been so excited to run a race for so long that it was fun to see her get her ribbon and jump up and down I winned! I winned! despite the fact that she was probably closer to the end of the pack of runners and not the beginning. She loves to run and always is requesting to go running with me. The race was at the local Venetucci farm and all the kids got to pick a free pumpkin out of the patch at the end of the race.

At the end of the race they had the path marked off with cones so the kids would be able follow the cones to the finish line and our little bizarre Aly had to touch the top of every cone while doing her half run half dance all the way into the finish line. It was funny to watch.

I also got the chance to run in the 10k race. It is funny how relaxing it is to run a 10k race after training for my triathlon and half marathon it was kind of nice to be done after only 6.2 miles.
