Mission Accomplished!

Forgive my absence. I've been...
  • finishing up my third semester of grad school. (I was so thrilled to be able to turn in my assignments one day before the deadlines!)
  • Prepping my babies for end of year testing. (One of my fourth graders came up to me outside, running his little hands through his buzz cut panickingly, and said, "I just need a break! I need to go to the beach and just forget all about this EOG.")
  • attending my sister-in-law's graduation.
  • directing the first annual Farmers Market Fun Run and Walk!
The race was a big success and I'm so tickled about it! We had 116 finishers and filled out all our age groups categories 1st-3rd except for one. (Those males age 20-29 must be slackers!) Everyone seemed to have a really good time and things went smoothly. (Later, I'll post a detailed run down of how everything was organized/timed/recorded/etc. and what I've learned during the process.) All our volunteers (including my lovely sisters, mother, mother-in-law, and husband) were wonderful and many participants had lovely things to say about the event.

My favorite comment from the whole event though, was, "Running this was actually really fun! You might have turned me on to something."

Mission Accomplished! : )


  1. I've been waiting to hear how the fun run went! Glad to hear that it was a success! I think that's so awesome that you just up and ran a race for the first time! Way to go!

  2. Good job! You accomplished getting more people addicted to running. :)

  3. Ahhhhh!! So proud that you pulled this off, what a huge accomplishment!!

  4. How cool! I'm glad the race went well!! :0)
