Running a 5K

Hubby and his friend recently ran a 5K.  Hubby has been running a lot and has even signed up for his first marathon (eek!), however his friend has just recently started running and this was his very first race.  A 5K close to his home was the perfect race to start with.

Before the race – are they cool or what?  They have been friends since elementary school, so there is always a trip down memory lane when we get together.  Can you imagine the stories us wives hear over and over and over?!?

Here they come!

Hubby found us, but his friend kept his eye on the finish line!

Did you notice they are totally in sync?  It cracks me up – it’s no surprise that these two are in perfect step!

After the race we enjoyed hanging out with our friends, eating some fair food (love me some fried pickles!) and watching a 2-hour parade with a candy finale like none I have ever seen.  I didn’t get pictures – there was no time with all of the candy grabbing going on!

All in all, it was a great day (despite getting up at 5am!).
