We are a big crowd although we were a few short this year (Miss you Bia and Amy! Hope you can make it next year!) Regardless there were still around 20 crazy people who needed big adventures in which to create appetites for whatever meal was next.
There are quite a few runners in the family and about 10 of us decided to head off to a local 5K to test our mad skillz and try to take all the top prizes. On a side note, I awoke at 4:30 that morning to run 11 miles in the dark and humid
|The first good choice of the day!|
After everyone recovered we did indeed go out for a beer which was delicious!
|I tend to think the 5K may have been an easier choice!|
As previously mentioned, we all like a good adventure. I am also quite certain that all of us who chose the 5K had an easier, more restful day. (now I feel like a slacker!)
|A few of the fabulous entries...|
And yes, we ate dozens of lobsters and about 6 gallons of ice cream.
We played yard games, took silly pictures and had an awesome little bonfire.
A perfect end to a great day of running around!
