Memorial Day Weekend Part 2

After our awesome hike on Saturday, Sunday we took it easy. Dan and I both went for easy runs Saturday morning as a last prep for Monday's race. We cleaned the house (very exciting) and waited for my parents to arrive from Florida.

On Monday Dan and I got up early for the Bolder Boulder. We jogged down to the start (less than a mile from our house), and got in our waves. The race was as exciting as last year with 50,000 runners and walkers and probably that many people lining the race course. There were 29 bands playing on different street corners (including the Blues Brothers and Elvis), not to mention the belly dancers and people with slip 'n slides on their front lawns. There were even two houses handing out bacon. We both had PRs for the race, Dan at 48:40 and me at 55:32. Mom and Dad made their way to the stadium and we hung out a while with them and Ann watching the runners finish. We stayed around for the professional race and the Memorial Day ceremonies. I even got to see some of the kids that were in the BBRacers Club that I trained the last two months. They did great!

Later in the afternoon we took Mom and Dad to the Boulder Creek Festival and then we went out to dinner with Tim and Jill for birthday spaghetti and garlic knots. Yum!
