As you may recall, this sister tricked me into running my first marathon in Dallas (read it here). That time, we tied. In and around and since that time, she beat me in a 5k, pushing a double stroller, beat me in a turkey trot 4 miler in my town, and just keeps running faster after every nephew she brings into life for me and my future Green Bay offensive line.
So, this past weekend, she turned an age between 35-39, and her boys (and her husband) planned an inaugural birthday 5k for her. I couldn't miss it - so I drove out to the Seeker Ranch in Prairie Lea, TX for the big event.
In any inaugural event, there are last-minute route changes
Here's the start - it was pretty chilly and WINDY - Mom also finished (so did Dad, but he was behind the camera)
back into mile 1.5 - dodging cowpies
This was the only nephew that didn't run - he was born in July. I'm pretty sure he'll be running by Christmas.
Thanks to Gretchen for running with me, Ron for the race, and Dad for the pics.
