I had a blast this weekend, and I hope you did too! Here’s the quick recap. My mom came to visit on Thursday and we went shopping and out for dinner where we dined on some great cheeseburgers. I love me some mother daughter time, it was such a fun treat! Then on Friday we drove back up to Cloquet for the weekend. I loved not having to make the 2 hour commute by myself. I think I talked her ear off.
Once we made it back, Chris and I ate dinner with my parents and then I watched say yes to the dress on mute while he studied away for his big test. Then on Saturday while Chris took his test, I ran the 9th annual pumpkin run!
I finished in a time of 23:07, my best time by almost a minute. I was 19th overall, the 4th female finisher and first in my age group (20-29). While that sounds suprer impressive (I think it does), keep in mind there were only 250 runners, so it wasn’t a huge race.
My people also raced. My dad finished in 25:52 and my mom walked it in an impressive 46 minutes! Here they are in action:
This picture below, just makes me so happy, my parents are so supportive of Chris and me, and I’m going to miss my every other weekend visiting time, once Chris moves to Minneapolis come the big day of December 27th. I will not miss all the driving though
