Speedy Spaniard Road Race (10k)

This year there were over 600 runners and it was a great morning for a road race!! Rich, Monica and I got up at the butt crack of dawn, 5:45am to be exact! I believe it is my 6th Speedy Spaniard. Rich and I have done it together every year since we got married and we plan on keeping up the tradition. I don't have any pictures, sorry.

Rich got 5th Overall and was 1st place in his age division and he is the "Speediest Spaniard!!" They had a "locals" category and he was the fastest runner from Spanish Fork!!! He got $40 cash and a medal for first place. I am SO PROUD!!!

I finished in 1 hour 8 minutes. I tweaked my knee at girls camp and haven't run all month. I was pretty happy with the result. I can't remember for sure but I think my best time was the first year I did it and I finished in an hour. One of these days I am going to start being more serious about running.
Monica finished in 1 hour. She did awesome!

We went home after the race to get everyone for the parade. That is another tradition I could do without...honestly it is SO HOT and parades are pretty boring. Melanie and Monica weren't loving it and the kids weren't either!

After the parade we hung out at my house for a while and I made some cookies and then we headed to Harry's Ranch for Rich's family party. The food was delicious and I thought Melanie and Monica would object to going to Rich's family party but they had a good time. The kids all had fun on the canoes and paddle boats and playing in the sand. We stayed there a few hours and then headed back to our house.

We went to the mall and ate dinner at the food court, then just hung out at my house all night!!!
