This morning looked really glum, it was dark and very rainy, but apparently people still wanted to come see Liz and I race! We had quite the little entourage, I felt like a rockstar. ;)
- People who came: Liz, Liz's husband, their two kids; Liz's parents; my dad and little sister Liza; my BFF Laura and her mom; Scott & Amber; Jaquelene & John! And, of course Travis. :)
My dad made me open my birthday present before the race, and I'm glad he did! He got me this small video camera to record my races and anything that catches my fancy. Yay! Dad told Travis that he had to use the video recorder at the race, so here are some of the videos:
The start of the 8K and 5K races, with some eager cheerleading by family/friends.
Apparently I'm too quick to be captured on video, that and Trav doesn't seem to know what he's doing with the new camera. Oh well, there was me...for a brief second.
Liz finishing her race! She was amazing!!
At the end of the race, I totally sprinted next to this dude that did not want to be passed by a "Skirt"...he ended up beating me, but only very very slightly. Ha ha! At least I snuck up on him from behind. But, either way, it was fun sprinting the finish in the mud!

High five, Liz!
After the race was over, we all headed over to my house for some bad-for-you pizza and an ice cream cake. Yummy deliciousness. My dad and Liza still think I'm a princess or something, because every year my cakes look more and more like I'm turning 5. Oh well, it's cute and it was GOOD. Of course, I'm still wearing my tiara and admiring myself in the lovely little mirror as I type. *sigh*
