For the third year in a row, we started our Thanksgiving Day by running a family 5k down in Castle Rock. It’s turning into a great tradition. The race is laid back, but organized well. It’s fun for the kids to get the matching T-shirts.
Prior years have been cold and dreary – not today! Beautiful and warm. It seems the crowds were out in record number, raising a lot of money for a good cause. The course was mostly on a bike path, so I didn’t get much running in trying to navigate through the crowds pushing Jessica in the stroller. With a little less than a mile to go, the course opened up and we were able to get up to speed. Then I let Jessica get out and run the rest of the way to the finish – she did great!
Everyone did great and had fun. Then we stuffed ourselves with a wonderful meal.
Took a trip to Moab a couple of weeks ago and did a lot more hiking than I usually do out there (always running/biking). It was great to spend time with the family and take the kids to some really cool places. We had fun spotting ‘faces’ in the rock walls. Here are a few samples:

During the week we were in town, my 7th grade daughter spotted license plates from 44 states and 4 Canadian provinces! Maine, Louisiana, North Dakota, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Hawaii were the no-shows. Y’all missed a great time!
