Today I went out and ran to a different song- “Just like Heaven” by the Cure (yes I played it over and over again) and sure enough, I finished the first mile in 12 minutes, and I felt pretty good. But wait, we were talking about Saturday.
After the 5k we headed over to the Olympics and enjoyed fruit and muffins for breakfast. While we were finishing up an events organizer came over to us and asked if Ken would be willing to be Dunked in the Dunk Tank. Knowing my husband well, I quickly answered for him, YES; He would love to be dunked!
I couldn’t take a picture of myself throwing, but yes, I did dunk him, as did at least 9 other people. He was pretty wet.
Baby J wanted to get dunked too, that is until the next time Ken was dunked and water spilled over onto him. The boy loves water, unless it gets on his face. He looked at his Dad, looked at me and smiled then took off running towards the ladder and started to climb.
We had tons of fun, and next year we are doing it again- well Ken has said he probably won’t run the 5k, I told him that was fine, as long as he cheered for me at several locations along the race course. That is the only thing that could have made Saturday’s 5k better, cheering fans!
