5k Fun

I ran my first official 5k since high school! It was the Turkey Trot in Loveland on Thanksgiving 2012.  It was a pleasant 46 degrees and calm, with sunshine and few clouds. There were over 2100 participants!

Anyway, it was a lot of fun to run this with my mom and dad, who both did great! As for my time, I managed to come in under 24 minutes, which was my goal. Hopefully, I can be faster next year! I officially trained for this one for about 10 days.

These pics were taken by a race photographer, and I had to pay for them. Maybe next time I can convince my WIFE to come watch the family run!

This was right at the beginning of the race. Notice the lack of fatigue.
And this is right at the end. It looks like I'm jumping as I kick it out towards the finish line!

Photo Shoot in Minnesota

Our wonderful and talented Cousin Jeff and his wife Jessica Kesterson accompanied us on a wonderful little trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior in early October. Jeff and Jessica are professional photographers who own Jeff Loves Jessica Photography in Minneapolis, MN. It's easy to see the talent, vision, and passion that they bring to their photography.

I thought I'd share these wonderful photos with everyone. Alexander is just over 10 months at the time of these photos and can walk on his own! My recommendation is you skip the normal blog format: Just click on the first picture and then scroll through the rest of them. They will be bigger and more detailed that way.  Thanks Jeff and Jessica!
