DFCU 5K-2

Last week some of the fam participated in the annual DFCU 5K. We met up a little early so the kids could have dinner.
Sandwiches, chips, drinks, string cheese, and cookies. It was a successful picnic. And the first time I got to use my cute new cooler.
The starting line. The boys were very excited to get to 'run' the race with Trent. Jill was pretty excited too.

The finish line. Trent told the boys that they couldn't ask questions during the race because he can't run and talk at the same time. And believe it or not, they didn't talk the whole time. Which is quite a miracle, our kids never stop talking...


And the reason I didn't get to run this year. My dang foot. I saw a sports medicine doctor at the Marathon last week and as I described my symptoms/problems with my foot, she thought it was probably a stress fracture. Of course, she said I needed to come to her office to she could be sure, but then she said a stress fracture doesn't always show on the x-ray and there isn't usually much they can do besides keep off your foot as much as possible and maybe wearing a boot. So, I keep going back and forth about going to the Dr. for real. I hate spending money when nothing can be done. I swear, my body just doesn't want to cooperate with running.
Needless to say I am pretty frustrated.

Good job to everyone who ran!!! So sorry about your foot--even when we want to exercise our bodies don't cooperate!

I love your watch.

I'm so sad about your stress fracture. I hope it starts to feel better soon. I love your watch too. And cute toe nails. Speaking of, we need to go get pedicures sometime. I hear pedicures help to heal stress fractures. ;)

I can honestly say that I hate that you are having this running problem. Not cool Amy...not cool.

Like the pictures of your kids in their sun glasses.

I got a stress fracture in my heel last Fall jumping into a pool after my then 2 year old who thought she could swim by herself. It didn't show on the first x-ray, but it did a week or two later. I wore a boot for about 4 weeks and it wasn't too bad, especially since it gave my foot a chance to heal.
