Girls on the Run 5K - Avonleigh's first!



It was so exciting to have Avonleigh run with me in her very first 5k race!
Here we are in the truck before we left the house.

Avonleigh and I standing by our friends' business tent. If you're in the Corvallis area and looking for a great chiropractor, I highly recommend Dr. Jason Young of Body of Health Chiropractic!

The finish line.  Funny story.  It's been so wet from all the rain and part of the path was flooded, so they re-routed the course so we ended up running one direction, turning around and going back to the finish line, only to continue on up the path until we reached the turn-around, then ran back to the finish line!  It was crazy, we kept thinking we were getting close to being done...eventually we got there!

Post-race thumbs up!  I'm so proud of her!  My little athlete came in 2nd in her age division (5 yrs and under), just behind our friends' daughter.

She had a great time (even if she looks less-than-enthused in the picture)!  She's been scouting out more 5k races ever since.  And she's been inspirational in getting the older kids more interested in running (or at least coming to the track with me so they can ride their bikes)!

Keep it up Choochie!
