On Saturday morning Ben and the girls ran the 5K Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis. Despite a cold and rainy run they had a lot of fun and managed to run a great race. This was the girls’ first 5K race. Vita Rose’s time was 32:25 and Isabella’s was 37:17. I was so proud of them. They ran at their own pace and ran individual races. Unfortunately I missed the photo of Isabella crossing the finish line. I snapped the photo and my screen said media card full. I was furious! I usually always delete the photos from the card after I back them up on the computer, turns out I grabbed a really old card and it was pretty full. I am hoping that once the race day photos are available I can order one of Isabella.
Isabella said she would run this race next year. Vita prefers warmer races and has to think about running this one again! Thanks to grandma and grandpa for coming down and supporting the girls in their race, for bringing the awesome elf hats (which Blackburn is still wearing out in public) and for treating us to lunch at Maggiano’s Little Italy after the race.
