On 12/8, Adriel and I ran a 10 K in Bristol. It was awesome. Before we ran, she gave me a present! An official sticker to prove I ran the half!
Adriel finished the 10 K in under an hour! A goal she had been striving for since 2009!! So proud of her! She also got 2nd in her age group!
This is our friend, Anne, finishing her first 10 K!!!
And…my dear friend, Katie, finishing the race. It was a GREAT race!
Later that day, Harper and Adriel came with us to ride on Munsey’s float in the Johnson City Christmas Parade!! This is on the shuttle on the way to the float!
