The Big Race

We had our big race this weekend - and it was AWESOME! The girls loved all the free stuff from the vendors and their cool shirts. I loved that they were having such a great time. Many people took our pictures. I think because we are such a big crew - and the twins too. Don't we just look like a big operation?!

This is us after the race. It started to down pour right as we started and ended shortly after we stopped - go figure. I was so proud of the DDs they ran the whole thing without stopping. (Not many of the kids were able to do that.) They were so stoked that they did it and were begging to do another one. We are now training for a 1 mile and DH and I just signed up for our first 5K. We are a running family!!

*DH was such a trooper. He took care of the twins and DD3 - in the rain and still took footage. (Thankfully he remembered umbrellas.) What a guy. Oh, and Mags, after the race we took them to their favorite restuarant and let them order whatever they wanted. Thanks for that reminder!


  1. How fun that you all got to be there together! You are such an amazing mom. I seriously love the daisies/rose lesson you did. I'm going to have to try that one down the road....what a fabulous idea! And keep up the good work on your running. You are so inspiring!

  2. Jennie you look fantastic!!
    Weight isn't a full reflection of how exercise is changing your body.
    If you're going to add an extra work-out though, make it WEIGHTS!! You'll get faster, more effective results by doing push-ups, squats, sit-ups etc than a bike workout & it takes less time!

    Here is a good circuit to try:

    5 push ups
    10 sit-ups
    15 squats
    repeat for 20min

    Love Mags

  3. Thanks for the compliments ladies!! It's your comments that keep me going! Mags, thanks for the circuit info. I am going to start that tomorrow.

  4. You guys are amazing! Great job on your first run and in the rain to boot.
