Gilbert Days


My partners in crime and I have decided to run a few races this season.  So we started out easy with a 5k at Gilbert days. 

DSC04331 The kids and I ran the 1 mile fun run last year.  They wanted to run again this year so we enlisted dad’s help.  Here they are crossing the finish line.DSC04332

 Michelle is faster than me and Gretchen.  Here she is crossing the finish line.  I think that she ran 10 minute miles.  Way to go Michelle.
