It was raining before the race and throughout the whole thing. There was a flash flood warning, so almost the whole trail was underwater and super muddy! So most of us just ran in the grass (which was also muddy and slippery).
But it was still so much fun! Thankfully it wasn't cold. :)
I ran this race last year, and there were 3 or 4 chocolate stations set up, and you got some at every station. I guess because of the rain, they didn't do that this time. So we got a few pieces in our race bag, and then a few at the end.
There was also no photographer out because of the rain, so no pics either.
I thought because of the conditions, my time would be really slow, so I was surprised to see I didn't do too bad!
I've heard that when you get old, having lighter hair makes you look younger, and since I'm now old...I'll probably keep it this way. :)
For Father's Day, the boys and I took Jeremy canoeing. I have this weird fear of canoeing, which I'm really trying to conquer. Obviously, because I've been twice now in the past month.
I started out in a canoe with Matthew, my 17 year old, and had a minor freak out, so we went back to shore and I got in a canoe with Jeremy. I felt much safer with him!
Charlie (our Yorkie) came along too. At one point he decided to jump out of the canoe, and into the lake. He's never been swimming or even around water, so that was fun. We were trying to grab him, and not tip the boat over at the same time. I'm sure we were quite a sight, it was hilarious!
Exciting stuff. I think I'm done with canoeing for awhile. :)

Thank goodness I was holding onto his leash!
