We like to exercise in this home.
We encourage the children to follow suit.
Earlier this year they had the opportunity to show off some skills.
A near-by town hosted a mini-Olympics.
It started with a warm-up and stretching.
Next was the running of the torch.
Jill thought the races had begun and left everyone in the dust.
Then the events began.
They did long jump, javelin throw, shot put, obstacle course,
and of-course the 60 meter dash.

The girls did great a had a great time.

In other running news:
We like to participate in a few fundraising runs each year.
Here's a re-cap:
Two-Sisters One Heart Run

Pat's Run:
early morning pre-run chill and anticipation
post-run heat with the group
This event is HUGE!
The Taylor's have made it a tradition.
We've participate a few of the years and it grows bigger each time.
The first year we ran it there was one heat, one start time.
This year there was over 20 heats placed by estimated run pace.
It was wild, the amount of people there.
It's 4.2 miles around Tempe Lakes and ASU.
I'm not sure if it was the hype in the air or what but I ran faster than I ever have.
I did the 4.2 miles in 39 minutes and felt like I could have gone faster.
It's still not that great of time, but an accomplishment for a sprinter.
Jeff did great as usual at 35:26.

I love Pat's Run and will do it until I die. That is a great time! I wish Ben could have joined us this year. Oh and I think Camille scratched on her jump. Re-do. I love that they did little Olympics and can't wait to see them do sports.
