Days of 47 10K
My dad always taught me to "sprint home" when finishing a run. Here I am "sprinting home" at the end of the July 24th Days of '47 10K! The last 2 miles are through the parade route which is a lot of fun. Steve (dad) and Janey came to cheer me on at the finish. Unfortunately Steve didn't feel that his knee was up for the race, but he was mad that he didn't just go for it. No worries, we'll get you there!
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
