First, on the 19th we joined in the Pound the Pavement For Parenthood crowd in Orem. We heard about this race through Groupon or some such, and hadn't ever run it before, but it was fun and a pretty good, level course, and maybe we'll do it again next year. What cause could be better than helping young couples who are hoping and praying and trying to add a wee young human to their family? The boys did the 5K, and The Wife decided to go for the 10K this time. There were quite a few runners for the 5K, but the 10 didn't have quite as many as we expected, and it was hot but not miserable. I did pretty well at about 23:54 (7:25/mile), not my fastest, but pretty good for pushing a stroller, and it was 3.2 miles too, coming in apparently 2nd overall (they only gave awards for first place, and evidently the guy ahead of me was also pushing a stroller. Fitting for a family-themed race, eh?), and then I backtracked on the 10K route and we all finished Julie's race together. Then during the awards they actually gave away several IVF cycles to some lucky raffle-winners, which may or may not have made certain parties cry just a bit.
|Thanks for coming, Mom and Dad!|
|Baby's a lot bigger than he was at this race last year.|
|Ahahaha, his first [running] bib.|
