Today I'm thankful for "new" old shoes, and girls that know how to laugh and have fun.
I ran my second 5k today. A Relay for Life run to raise money for cancer research and treatments for those in the area who need it. As some of you know, my little brother is a cancer survivor. He's been in remission for 4 years now, and he's going strong.
My newest pair of running shoes is completely worn out, so I brought out my old shoes for today's run; added new insoles and they were like walking on air. I'm glad I hadn't thrown them out yet. I ran the three miles in a little under 30 minutes, and came in 8th, which I thought was pretty good for this old gal.
After the run, Dave and the kids met me down below the dam, to play at the park, and then I picked up some groceries for tonight's 4-H dinner at the local community building.
We had lots of food, and several locals stopped by to have dinner with us all.
The older 4-H girls helped serve, and I believe they all had a good time laughing and cracking jokes. (They're really quite hilarious.)
I made it home right as the sun was setting.
It's been a long day and tomorrow is going to be even longer and more challenging, so I'm hoping to make it to bed at a decent hour tonight. Here's hoping!
