RunnR Boi

Many months ago Len started talking about wanting to run a 5k so he started looking at options and the one that jumped out (as it would have with me as well...) was the one that offered hot chocolate if you finished! Priorities right?  So yesterday was the big day. Originally we had all planned to go but the logistics of figuring out what to do with 2 kids for that long a time outside in 40 degree weather convinced me that we could cheer from the warmth and comfort of our living room. Len left the house around 6:30am and took the train downtown.
This picture made me feel better about not taking the girls down there.

With a finish time of 41:22, he bested his treadmill time! Now about that chocolate...
Meanwhile, the girls and I sent him text messages cheering him on...
and then set to work making a congratulatory banner.

Later in the day, while Len took a football/couch break, the girls and I set to work evicting pumpkin seeds from their home. Kate was not nearly as squeamish as she was in 2012 when we did this.

It seems like this might have been the last good weekend to run for fun outside. Tomorrow we may have snow!
