ABW and I completed our first 5k this weekend.

It's funny to me that I even made it without falling into a coma. But when ABW called me today and said, "WE GOT TROPHIES!!!", I laughed and asked her what she was talking about. She said, "You got first place in your age bracket and I got second in mine!" I really thought she was joking, but she assured me that she was serious. We couldn't stop cracking up. (If I didn't have a nicotine habit to nurse, we would have stayed long enough to know that we had actually placed.)

So here's proof that we actually showed up for the race:

ABW said, "Pretend you're stretching or something." Yeah, not sure exactly which muscle I was pretending to stretch in this one:

She rolled her eyes when I told her to do the same thing:

Junior, looking cute as usual:

And Tucker, doing his best to throw up the entire contents of his stomach (story of my life):

So ladies and gentlemen, if my chunky self can place first in anything athletically related, there's hope for people everywhere.

Good for you both!! What do you have coming up next?? Wasn't there a biking thing you guys were doing? I'm taking my chunky self outside and do some yard work. You should have seen me yesterday. Went head first into the yard waste bin. I really hurt myself too. Thankfully no one saw how I did what I did!!!! Later. Mom

How could you miss with such cuties as good luck charms?! (Junior and Tucker, of course...although ABW is very pretty too).

How fun to be out & about winning trophies with your sons. :)
