Yesterday morning, Josh, Lila, and I got up bright and early to head up to the Run for Your Life 5K race through the museum district of Houston. The race started at 8 a.m. which put us arriving at the Health Museum before the sun even came up (which is an hour I haven't had to experience since Lila was about 4 months old!). I was so excited because this was my first race since May 2009, just a few weeks before I found out that I was pregnant with Lila, and because this was the first time I could push her in our fancy jogging stroller in a competition (of course, with my little legs, running isn't much of a competitive sport but more like a leisurely activity). This was Josh's first race ever, so he was pretty excited too! We came in 155 (me) and 156 (Josh & Lila) out of ??, I didn't see how many, but we pretend that there were about 800...it was probably more like 300-400 people. We finished in 33 minutes, which we were excited about. Josh pushed the stroller the whole time, which was great because, man, does that stroller add some resistance when you're running!?! After the race we got to walk around and explore the Health Museum, which was really neat (I'm a nerd and love museums...although not too fond of the history ones-which happen to be Josh's favorites). We parked right by the Children's museum, but decided to wait until another time to take Lila there as we were tired and starving. I don't know about you, but food always wins out in this family! It was such a fun Saturday, and to make it even better, Auburn beat LSU!! War Eagle!
