This past weekend was Danvers Days. If you don't know what that is, it's a small town less than 10 miles from us who was having their yearly parade, carnival and other festivities. In the morning, I ran my first 5K! That was pretty fun! The kids were there with daddy cheering me on as I crossed the finish line. I think I got my best time which was 24.30 (7.54 min/mile). I was shocked when I got to mile one marker and the timer shouting out times said 7:45 for my first mile. I wish I had some pictures of that but all I got was one of me after the race when I was tired and sweaty....so I'll pass on sharing that one. Maybe next time! I might do another one in the fall.
In the afternoon, the kids and I participated in the parade on the Rader Farms Pumpkin Patch float. It was HOT. Then we went over and the let the kids go on a couple of rides before going home.
