Peachtree Race....here we come!




Mike and I will be running/walking the Peachtree Race tomorrow, bright and early!
We wouldn't be able to do it together, if it were not for Aunt Yvette! She will be watching Parker while we run the race.
I have been training for 5 months and will be able to run a good 3 miles. Mike just pulled a hamstring in Softball this week, so he won't be running much! If you do not have running times from previous races-you automatically go into the walk/run cateogory or get in the groups 3-9!
We are doing the race with 6 other friends-so we will see who we end up with at the end!
I will post our experiece and photos after the event!
Looking forward to the experience and eating some yummy pasta tonight!
(A must before a 10k!)

We wish all of you a Happy 4th of July!
Jenn, Mike & Parker




UPDATE:


WE DID IT! It was an amazing experience, and I am so glad that I pursued this challenge and completeted it! There are no words to express the feeling when you look up and see the letters: FINISH! (Knowing all that we had just done and personally never doing it before was a moment I will always remember!)


I ran the race with my friend Samantha and we walked about 2 miles of it -broken up and ran the other 4.3! Mike walked the whole race and enjoyed his time with his IPOD! It would have been fun to run it with him (but injury wouldn't alllow) so he had me go on and aim for this goal that I wanted to reach!
Now that the race is behind me, that wonderful Mother's Day Spa Gift Certificate is calling for some needed attention!
I will make use of a SO needed massage today!
YEAH!
