It is time to kick of the Mama and Mustache Grand Prix! I'm planning to use this site to post updates and pictures about once a month. Since some of us have already gotten started I can include in here what points have been accumulated that I'm aware of. If you have pictures to add, please send them to me and I will post them to the blog.
New Years Day 10K
5 runners and 3 fans came out on a wet, chilly New Years Day. While there have been no official times posted yet, we are pretty sure of the outcomes and points. Some people are making an early statement that they are in this thing to win it (I'm not naming any names, but one of them was dressed like Steve from Blues Clues.)
So, here are the days accolades.
Lindsey Kelley- 6 miles (6pts), New PR (10pts), Placed in her division (10pts)- 26 points
Ashley Bailey- 6 miles, new PR, placed in her division 26pts
Brian Bailey- 6 miles, new distance (5pts), 11pts
Patrick Kelley- 6 miles, 6 pts.
Jake Van Lear- 6 miles, 6 pts.
Amy Van Lear- Childcare 6pts.
If you missed this race, it is definitely worth running. It's all very familiar territory, and lots of familiar faces. I know lots of you have been getting out there this week in spite of miserable conditions. Keep up the good work! Just a small reminder, if you want to count weight loss as part of your total, remember to weigh yourself this week and write it down somewhere so you'll be able to compare it to your weight loss at the end of 2013.
One more thing, please forgive me, I am new at this blogging thing. I will try to get better. If you want to check out an extremely good blog published by one of the runners in our group, check out http://www.sarahmcow.com/. She often writes about running and races, but also family life and things that are generally amusing like the Chicken that holds the "We Buy Gold" sign being recruited by the Marine Corps right on the corner of Joyce and College. Trust me, it's better when she writes about it.
