Kicking Off 2016 - FINALLY!

Posted on February 12, 2016 at 8:50 AM

Finally!!! We are back in business. The 2016 race season kicked off this past weekend and we were more than ready.


Friday night we traveled to Round Rock for out first race of 2016. The Brady's Bridge Super Family Fund run was a great event. This was the inaugural 5k for this organization.

We started off the weekend with a yummy trip to Razzoos. As usual, we had a little adventure doing just the small things. I needed to wash my truck. I didn't want to look like the hillbillies came to town with dirty pick up!!! We find a car wash and the boys were razzing me and telling that I was going to scratch the paint. Well the jinx worked, because it didn't wash all the soap off. So we drive around for 45 minutes looking for a "manual" car wash. They are hard to come by in the city!! We finally headed back to the hotel without finding one. Just another benefit to country life!!


Saturday morning started with us running a little behind. We left the hotel about 15 minutes behind schedule. After getting breakfast, we headed to the park for the race. You see, we had checked out the race location the night before, but it was the wrong place!! We arrived at the location at what we thought was just a little behind schedule. There were no cars anywhere around! I knew we were in the wrong spot. Due to some construction, we had to take the long way around and by the time we arrived, we were really late for our schedule. We got on the ball and got everything done with 20 minutes to spare before race time. (Thanks to some great helpers at the race for helping us unload!!)


After the race, we enjoyed a great lunch with family while we were in town. Jack and Larry Don learned all about the joys of Pinterest this weekend and I think I've created monsters, they're addicted!!! After we got home, I found out the boys sent a picture to Randall who had to stay home because he was on call. They made it the whole race without me catching their mistake, but my awesome hubby made sure I found out!! You can check out the picture below and see for yourself.


Good help is hard to find!!! Just kidding, love my Race Day crew!!! We got the kinks worked out this weekend so we should be back in the swing of things now!! Bring on 2016!
