Blanca and I began a thanksgiving tradition. I believe this was the fifth year we do the turkey trot together. This dates back to our days of dating. This time it was a bit different. We did a new turkey trot. This one takes place in the heart of downtown and the beautiful king Williams district. We went with the intentions of having a great time but as always pushing hard! It is always a great time when you have some of your training partners there too.
I gave it all I could that day. My all was good enough to put me in 9th for my age category. Blanca was another story. Not only did she run faster than I did this thanksgiving, she also placed. She made it to the podium.
Blanca still owns the 4 miler time but I still have the better 3 mile. We love competition.
One evening when Blanca was working. I put the dogs to rest as you can see.
I slowly went to the pantry.
As soon as the pantry door opens..
One day I asked Blanca for something. I asked her to bake cookies. So I got cookies and a show.
This week was also officially the end to our Downtown Run Group summer training. 😕 This also means that the RNR Marathon is on the horizon. This is always one of the best weeks of the year.
Even though our summer season has ended we continue to train. We have goals and we work hard to reach them. If you need any info about our free run team click here. You can also find more info on the run page of my blog.
Comeback to hear how marathon week went.
God bless you!!
To my few readers I apologize it has been a while since my last post. Since that time lots has changed. For example our family grew once again. It has grown by number and by size.
A couple of weeks ago I planned to go see some of our church kids play soccer. Sadly it got cancelled because it rained the night before. The grounds were still wet and they didn’t want to risk damage to the fields. Instead they came over to play and visit.
In other news, a long time friend of mine has finally tied the knot. I am very happy for him. I am very honored to have had the chance to experience this among his frinds and family.
A couple of weeks ago Blanca and I went to first Friday. We went out for a stroll. Her siblings and some friends joined us for some food truck eats. The gang then followed us to see the new improved downtown park. Here is what went down….
Working with my father has been great. This is including all our discussions. We talk about everything from politics to bible and most of all sports. Traveling for work with him has also been great. A week ago we traveled to Spring Branch, Texas and on our way out of the property we did a little exploring. It amazes me sometimes how God can create such beautiful work.
I want to remind everyone we are still running with the best run group in town.
Visit the DRG Facebook page to see what we are all about. You can also see the section on my blog dedicated to Downtown Run Group.
I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and got plenty of rest to start the holiday season.
God bless you
