YMCA 1 Mile Fun Run!!

The girls ran in the annual Canyon County Harvest Classic 1 mile fun run sponsered by the YMCA this year! They were so excited to do this. The weather was so cold and windy that day but their resilience was amazing and they still had smiles on their face after they were done! Addie ran with one of her friends and Kendall was my buddy. She was so cute. She would run as fast as she could and then slow down and walk and say "mom, I'm tired" and I would say "do you want to keep walking?", and she would say everytime "no I want to run!" and take off for another 30 seconds or so as fast as she could. Thanks mom for braving the weather and taking pictures!

Kendall Irene Green turns 3!! Late :(

I am so late getting a post up about my sweet little Kendall and her 3rd birthday! We did a Barbie party at home for the Green clan and Grandma threw a Dora fiesta party for the Grants! She had so much fun and would say "I love it" to everything she received. She is such a wonderful blessing to our family.

I finished the race...

Thats about all I can say. It was pretty pathetic but hey I finished! It took me 2 hrs and 54 minutes. The hills on this were killer. I thought I had done enough work on the rolling hills out by where I live. Um NO! The second hill (actually it was the top section of a longer hill) was so steep you could walk as fast as you could run. Think middleton road hill but for a half mile. I had 2 major obstacles as well during the race. My first obstacle came when I had to make a pit stop at hidden springs. For those of you who would like to hear more of this adventure email me and I will gladly share as it is a little too graphic for a public blog, but a funny story! My second obstacle was at mile 10 when my knee started hurting so bad I wanted to cry. So I had to walk(limp) the last 3 miles. I was able to muster up a slow jog across the last little stretch to the finish line where I was greeted by my mom and my brother and his family. That was so awesome to see them and made me feel good. I have a goal to run it next year and be 30 pounds lighter(so I dont kill my joints) and run it 45 minutes faster.
