The weather for the run was near perfect, it was in the upper 50's with a light breeze and fairly humid. This season the weather has been very mild around here and I was actually racing in shorts and a tank top!
A friend and I have been training after school, running speed work and working on getting a bit faster. This was our first 5K together and it was a lot of fun! I wasn't very good with pictures, so we only have a couple from pre-run and post run. Even with a bit of editing, they are still darkish, but I am glad to have them!
|Beth and I on the start line...ready, set, GO!|
|We both placed in our age groups! The prizes were gift cards to a local running store! We|
didn't get any pics of the boys, but they also ran well and placed in their age groups.
Aside from the run, we spend a lot of time on campus. We run there multiple times a week and also take our little beagle, Dylan, walking there. The campus is BEAUTIFUL! One of my favorite spots is a section that has a mini waterfall and trees. It's so peaceful there. This space is called, Hartman Place. Besides the waterfall, there is an area with a dedicated space for writing tributes to lost loved ones in chalk below a stainless steel etching of 1 Corinthians 13:13.
|Dylan goes on a cool evening walk around Hartman Place. I tried to capture the Christmas lights, but they are|
so much prettier in person!

|Cutest beagle boy ever! xoxoxo|
Hope each of you have a blessed week! Hopefully, I will have some finished artwork to share very soon! (**Counting down the days till Christmas break!)
