The Reedy River Run

A couple of weeks ago our family went to Greenville to participate in the Reedy River Run (5K). Kevin and I did the 5K and Kate Elizabeth and Will participated in the Kids Fun Run. We had such a great time! Some friends of ours, Kristen and Trevor Jones, also participated and their son David ran the Fun Run as well.

Although I struggled somewhat during the run, I have Kristen and my hubby to thank for seeing to it that I continued to run until I past the finish line. I made really good time, considering I had a baby just 3 months ago. What was so sweet was that Kristen and I saw Kevin waiting on me about half a mile before the finish line and I assumed that he finished and then came back to see me, but no...he stopped right there until he saw me coming and he, too, ran across the finish line with me! What a sweet hubby!!!! I just love him!!!

Kate Elizabeth and Will did an awesome job at their run! They both had smiles on their faces the entire time. Their Daddy ran with them. Kate and Will each received a medal for completing the run. We were so proud of them, as they were of themselves. It was a beautiful day and a really fun time together. We hope this is just one of many runs that we will participate in as a family!

started out holding their hands and then they broke free
and ran their little hearts out.
Kate Elizabeth is proud of her very
first running medal.

left. Since Palmer was not old enough to run,
she played at Grammey's house until we
got home. We missed you sweet girl!


  1. You go, girl! Looks like you all had a great time. Enjoy your spring break! YEA!

  2. So fun! I love the pictures of the kids with their medals...what a good example for them to start early staying fit!! I love it!

    This reminds me that I need to get my walking/running shoes on and get myself on the pavement!

    Great post, and WAY TO GO KEVIN!! What a good hubby!
