Merdian 5k Dairy Run

Why we forgot the camera I do not know?

I ran my 2nd 5k this summer. I made it in a time of 32:59 minutes. I would have probably gone faster but there were two hills that I had not expected that slowed me down. I cut a minute of my time and hope to cut another minute off my time in September at the 3rd 5k of the summer.

Avalee and Lincoln ran in the 1/4 mile run. They did very well and got a shirt and cow bell for running and finish the race. I was equally impressed because the next week I found out Lincoln was not breathing and had to go on a dose of steriods for a week.

5-mile run

I accidentally ran five miles on Monday night. Here is how:

On Friday, I went out running and got rained on because I got to far away from the house. So on Monday, I decided to run around our subdivision until I hit four miles. Mapmyrun.com told me our subdivision was .7 miles. So off I went for six laps. When I got home I looked at the clock and thought I had gotten really slow. Then I decided to get in the car and clock it. I found out the subdivision is .8 miles and with six laps. I had ran .2 miles shy of five miles.

This is an amazing accomplishment for me because my foot still hurts at times. With another 5k down on Saturday, I only have one more to go to reach my goal of three this summer.

Tonsillectomy and Adenoid Surgery

After a winter of antibotics and a sinus infection and a six week wait, Avalee finally got into see a Pediatric ENT doctor today. Only to find out the the antibotics had cleared her sinuses but she needs her tonsils and adenoids taken out as they are 50% swollen. The earliest day they could do it is July 14. She cannot leave the area for 14 days. I asked them to please notify me if they have a cancellation because we are going to be pushing it close for leaving for Virginia.

I also guess Lincoln and I are going to my family reunion my ourselves and Avalee and Nathan will be staying home.

I can now say that our summer break will be over in exactly 3 1/2 weeks. The kids and I are going to make a list of the things they want to do and we are going to be very busy.
