4 month old Noelle the first year I ran this race
There were quite a few people from our church running the race this year, including my friends Sarah and Megan (and Megan's husband, Joe). Sarah and I placed second and third for the women, and Megan was first in our age group. The course was a fun path behind some neighborhoods through the woods and around a lake. The temperature was cool and the sun was shining making it comfortable to run in shorts and a long sleeve. The run was pretty easy for the first two and a half miles, and the last half mile or so was a slight uphill, definitely making the end the most difficult.

Luke stayed home with the littles, after I made sure to try and tank Jonah up before I left. Since we're supplementing with formula now anyhow, we figured Luke would push the bottle if need be. It ended up working out great because Jonah napped for most of the time that I was gone. What a good babe. It was great to be out without the kids for a little while, and it made me extra happy to see them when I got home!
