Camping at Pace Bend

During Spring Break we went camping at Pace Bend.  Last year Ry was barely a year old and was just learning to walk.  This time he was off wandering on his own, playing with rocks, dirt and toting his dump truck everywhere.  He especially loved rolly pollies and would scream 'BUG!" every time he saw one.  My parents had a new camper this year, which Ry made himself quite comfortable in (actually we all did), especially in the early morning when it was cold out.  He had a ball and slept great at night in our tent.  I think he slept better than us.  Unfortunately there was a burn ban this year so no wood fires, which meant no s'mores!  Waaaaahh!  That's OK, we enjoyed awesome dutch oven cooking and the weather we perfect!

Kristi 5K

Jenn and I ran the Kristi 5K this past Saturday (3/3/13).  It was sunny and 50 degrees, which would have been fine if it wasn't for the wind.  15-22mph winds really makes you cold when you're just hanging around the lake waiting for the race to start, especially when you're only wearing shorts and short sleeves.  We ran counterclockwise around the lake.  Mile 2 was the toughest and had the worst wind resistance.  I finished in 26:25 (Garmin, there was no chip timing) and the course was a bit short at 2.88 miles (Jenn said she got 2.93 miles).  I took 1st place in my age group and recieved a medal.  I was the 3rd female to cross the finish line and 9th or 10th overall.  Jenn took 1st female overall and received a nice trophy.

Avg pace - 9:11
Mile 1 - 9:09, Mile 2 - 9:38, last 0.88 - 7:38 (8:44 pace)
