I Surivived!

And by survived, I really mean it. It wasn't pretty, but I made it! On Memorial Day, my friend Janelle & I walked the Bolder Boulder (a local 10K race). Neither of us had really trained for it, but it was really fun! A bunch of other other friends ran it, so that is my goal for next year! I just couldn't manage with my broken toe (it's finally better)! Joel & some of his guy friends are going to run, too.

It was a great day & we had lots of fun. You finish the race in the University of Colorado football stadium. It's pretty cool to walk in & every one is cheering. They also have a ceremony following the race at 11:00am. They had parachuters jump into the stadium with each of the Armed Services flags followed by the USA flag while they play the National Anthem. Pretty cool. Then they had a fly over of F-15s or something during the song, too. I had goose bumps. So cool. They had a speaker from the Korean War, too. Following the race, some of our friends came over for a BBQ on our back deck. Lots of fun!! Come join us next year! (it's every Memorial Day!)

The Bolder Boulder is still going, wow, I remember the first one. Congratulations on walking it with a sore toe, I sprained mine last week and it hurts!

Happy belated 3 year anniversary!

Enjoy your summer working around the house, you and Joel have done a wonderful job fixing it up. Will Joel be writing this summer?

I'm sure you guys had lots of fun! I love seeing the picture of the two of you! I wish I could have been there with you.

The Holder Boulder is alive & well! We have lots of projects going, but Joel will be writing a lot this summer--he starts Grad School on Monday!

I wish you could have been there with us! I miss you!

Congrats! Funny...a year ago Memorial Day weekend I ran my first (and only) 10K! I'm just now getting back into the swing of things physically. (I ran 6 miles this morning with my friend Sarah!) If we're in CO next year, I'd love to run with you!

How awesome! I think to run it is a good goal for next year. I'm currently training for the Danskin Tri and it's killing me. It feels really great though. Miss ya and by the way, the house looks great!
