Fargo Marathon 10K

Well it was that time of year again....The Fargo Marathon. Last year I signed up for my very first 5K and did fairly well and didn't mind the training as much as I thought I would. This year, my friends said, let's try the 10K instead this year. Double what we did last year. So in my head I'm thinking, okay 6.2 miles, it's doable. Instead of my regular 3 mile runs I would have to increase that to at least 5 mile runs if not 6 mile runs. Well little did I know we would move into a new house 2 weeks before the Marathon, not a good idea .... Little to no training for the 3 weeks prior to the run! Oh well, what could I do about it at that point, but just run!

Here is me, Karlye and Katie going out of the dome heading to the start line..Weather this year wasn't as nearly as cold as it was last year, but it did rain the entire race! Dont' ya just love our matching shirts, we didn't want people to miss us. They say RUN LIKE HELL!

On the course about mile 3, still doing okay, just soaking wet and not looking very attractive, good thing I didn't wear White huh!

Coming in for the big this point I was ready to be done. My shoelace came untied with about .5 to go, but I wasn't about to stop to tie it. Coming in was such an amazing feeling again! Never gets old coming to the end and feeling like you have accomplished something you never thought you could!

Face is a little red, but I didn't care! I was happy to cross that line in just over 1 hour! 1 hour to be exact and 55 seconds! My goal was 1 hour, so not too bad.

AHH done! Katie coming in right behind me! We lost Karlye at some point when she stopped to get water and we kept going. Sorry Karlye!

I cannot wait for next year's race and who knows what I will do next year! I am planning on running a few 5 and 10K runs this summer to keep in the running mode and there is 2 half marathons this fall I may try out...Only time will tell!

Target Field!

Ahhh, one of best days...Outdoor baseball! Finally! We were lucky enough to attend the 2nd game at Target Field. The boys were soooo excited to go! What a stadium! Perfect day in early April, 70 plus degrees!
Entering the field at of course, Gate 34! boys have their Twins backpacks on and ready to go!

Household name at our house! JUSTIN!!

We were walking around the concourse and happen to see the FSN crew doing their show. Grant recognized them right away. Anthony and Coomer! They were having a good time!

What a great looking field! We were 3 rows from the top but it didn't matter, there isn't a bad seat in that stadium!

Boys in their seats and ready to go!

This is pretty much how the boys watched the entire game...through binocs! We even had to buy another set so they each had their own! Not sure why they felt the need to have them the entire game, but it worked!

AHHH the PLAZA! Here is KIRBY! What a great player!~

I love this picture, shows just how big that Gold Glove really is! The boys look like ants!

After game WIN! What a great game it was!

We are so looking forward to our next game and the next.... Good thing we don't live closer as I think most of our money would be going into that Stadium! GO TWINS!


Okay, so I know I am way behind but I will try and catch up a bit!

All the grandkids with Grandma and Grandpa Anderson!

The boys outside for the big Egg hunt! Love when we have great weather for this so they can be outside running around!

Grant finding some more eggs!

Family picture on Easter! Of course can't get Dylan to look directly at the camera! Oh well, it was a good attempt!

Our church held an Easter Egg hunt and Easter themed party. The kids had so much fun making crafts and finding more eggs of course! They were showing each other all the candy they got!

Here are a few of their favorite friends and cousin of course! Jada, Ellie, Brady, boys, Kai, & Bria. Ella was still finding more eggs!

now it's time to eat!

We had a great Easter as we do every year! The older the kids get, the way more fun it is to be parents to watch them enjoy each Holiday!
