Friday Fanfare, 5.21

IT'S FRIDAY!!!  Let's all celebrate another successful week and the start of the weekend.  How are you going to celebrate?  Go for a run, you say?  Great idea!  These people are racing this weekend:
  • Julie is running the Maple Grove 5K
  • Jenn is running the Fargo Half-Marathon
  • Courtney is running the Rock Your Socks Virtual 10K
  • Jill is doing the Black Bear Olympic Relay Tri (swimming leg, I think)
  • Darlene is running the SPAC Rock n Run 5K
  • ADP and I will be running a 5K on Sunday with the kids in the jogger
Good Luck!!

Don't forget to check out the giveaways on the sidebar.  I've been a little behind, so if you want your giveaway listed or a shout-out for Friday Fanfare just leave a comment!

Last night ADP participated in a 3.5 mile Workforce Challenge race.  It was hotter than we are used to (~80F).  He did awesome, if I do say so myself (I'm a little biased being his wife).  It was a self-timed event and I think he said his time was 22:30!  There were 8,500 runners and walkers.  The icing: there were lots of categories including 'male' teams of 4 and ADP was on the team that took 7th place.  So proud of my guy.

On the back of one of the team shirts was this:  "We don't run faster, we run smarter."  I liked it!

Very cute pix! It is so great that you and the kids went to be his cheerleading team. That is really fun and teaching them great things about striving for goals and cheering others on :)

Happy Friday to you!
