Ashtons last day of preschool

Ashton and Cole
Ashton and Petey Panda
Mrs. Kelly and Ashton

Weston, Brandon and Ashton
Sharielle and Ashton
Ashton and Mrs. Dutton

Ashton had a great school year and it was sad to say goodbye to friends and teachers.
Luckily, we will be back again for more preschool next year!
Summer has been fun and busy but Ashton definitely misses his routine of going to school.
I think he is already counting down the day until September.
I of course think that time needs to slow down. We Can't believe how quickly the year flew by.

Rock n Roll Half Marathon 2011

4:00 am before run

The rock n roll marathon was one of the coolest experiences I have had.
As a whole, the marathon raised $9 million for leukemia and lymphoma research.
I woke up early, like 3:00 A.M. early and left the house around 4.
The run started around 6:15 and continued throughout the day. They had bands set up almost at every mile playing away.
I felt pretty darn good the whole run. My mind kind of went somewhere else and I just ran.
Around mile 8, Tommy, Sharielle (so glad my sister was here on vacation!), Ashton and Weston were standing along the sidelines with all of the other supporters cheering us on. I think seeing them helped me run the 5 miles I had left.
Crossing the finish line was surreal. I as so happy, tired, exhausted, proud and so much more!
My time was awesome (yes, I feel I can brag about it) at 1 hour 58 minutes. So that means my pace was an average of 9 minutes for 13.1 miles straight!
I'm so glad I did this race. Not only for the cause but for the experience.

Time: 1:58
placed in the top 10% of all the women racers
placed 311th out of 3,000 in my division
Overall placed 2,800 out of 17,000
