Okay, so it wasn't a Marathon, it was a race. Alright, it wasn't a race, it was a "Fun Run." And I wasn't actually going to run, but walk. But, Fun Run kind of rhymes with Marathon, and since I didn't actually end up doing it, I can call it whatever I want!
Today my family is running in the Blackfalds, Alberta Fun Run. Until last night, I was set to participate. However, we are renovating our home, and are down to the wire, so I need to stay home and paint while everyone else wins the race. I did send Eli with my folks (with his Lightning McQueen underpants on, for good luck) and think he's going to shine!
Despite my absence from the race, I did manage to send off some medals for the racers. Yesterday Eli and I whipped up these little gems:
They were fun to make and super easy. Eli helped, with a little trampoline jumping break. I may not be there to see them win it, but my 9 nieces and nephews and Eli are going to be big winners this morning!
