Day of firsts....

Today I ran in my first official run.  It was a glorious day for a run, too!  I ran in the marathon relay with 4 other people-Carla, Bradi, Tara, and Stephen.  I got up at well before dawn to catch a shuttle by 5:00 am to take me to my leg of the race. The race started at 7:00am, but I didn't start running my 6 miles until about 8:30am.  After my leg, I hopped on the bus and made my way back to town where I waited with Carla until her husband, Stephen, came into view, then we jumped back onto the course and crossed the finish line.  It was really a great feeling to know that I had accomplished this.  Bradi and Tara actually took it a step further and ran an additional leg-in fact, Tara ended up running a half marathon and Bradi ran 8 miles.  It makes me excited to get signed up for a half marathon.  Back in December I had tried to get into the half marathon, but it was full, so that's when Carla suggested the relay, and I named it:  TEAM LEFTOVERS.  It was quite exhilerating to hear the announcer say that as we crossed the finish line and received our COOL medals.  I know, I am a dork.   Great job gals...and Stephen!

Carla and Stephen-Seriously, ice?  jk

Another first today, Z-Man has a fever, so I thought I would humor him and give him his first Oreo Cookie...

Before-look at thos BIG blue eyes, you can just tell he doesn't feel swell.

After-not too messy.  He enjoyed about half of it.

Congratulations on the marathon relay! You did great. I always enjoy reading your posts on facebook about your running. I wish that I could have had the running bug like you. I hope all is going well with the baseball team. They did amazing this year. Tell Trevor good job and congratulations on the accomplishments. You are such a good couple.
