5k number three, coming up!

First I have to give a shout out to my niece.  She ran a 5k yesterday in 35:02! Awesome by itself, but she lived in the east and it was 93 degrees!  Way too hot for me.  Congratulations Squidlet!

I can't wait to run together!
Now, to the news at hand...My husband and I have been planning to run a 5k together at the end of July.  My community is one with many small town celebrations all summer long and with those come quite a few 5k races.  I recently found out that the 5k in my town is FREE!  Yes!!!!  I love free, especially when there are two of us entering.  Another plus, the race starts about a block away from my house and the route runs literally right past my door!  The plan right now is to have my parent come stay with us and watch the girls.  They will be able to get some great race pictures and the girls can stay in their jammies!  I'm so excited, Big D and I both ran yesterday and it looks like our paces won't be too far off from each other.  We may be able to literally run the race together! (Can you tell I'm excited?)
