Getting Ready for our Run

We are getting ready for our first 10K and fun run on the 4th. My oldest is running the 10K and the rest of us are doing the 2 mile fun run. We went to a local lake on Friday night that has a 5 mile paved path around it. My oldest ran while the rest of us biked. We had a great time. My youngest started off a little slow, complaining that she was hungry. Luckily I had a granola bar in the car. We were going to do a couple geocaches while there, but they were off the main path, so we didn't bother. We had to catch up to our runner. He had taken off a little bit before we got started, and he was waiting for us when we got done.

Here we are going over the dam. Ever since 9-11 they've had to have it pretty secure. Shortly after the terrorist attacks the dam portion of the path was closed and you weren't even able to go all the way around the lake. Now there are just high fences with barbed wire and other security devices.

Wish I had better pictures, it's hard to take pictures while I'm biking. And if I stop I get left behind!

Isn’t it a shame that we have to have terrorists to mess things up. How much nicer if we didn’t have to secure everything and worry. Sounds like good family healthy fun.
