saturday morning heidi and i ran in the whaling days "whale of a race". i didn't PR, i ran it faster last year by over 2 minutes but at least this year i didn't feel like i was going to hurl when i ran it. i still did okay, coming in at 33:39. then heidi and i booked it over to the new Y in silverdale to clean up before the parade. our families met up with us to watch the parade, and i made it just in time to see austin marching with his scout troop as he does every year.
the only pic of me and heidi that we both looked good in.
high-tailed it back to the parade just in time to see austin marching with his boy scout troop.

katie, soph-ball, and sammy.
thought this was pretty cool.
i tried to chase this guy down and lick him but he was too fast.
having fun watching the parade....
me and my boomer-boy.
sunday morning a bunch of friends and i took part in the Hui Hei Hei Wa'a Dye's Inlet Dash. it was cold and rainy, but we persevered. after we lost our first heat, we were a little discouraged, but we tried to stay positive. we went on to win the second, and third, and FOURTH race, to take home the WINNER'S trophy! we were SO stoked.
right before the first race, note the apprehensive look on my face.
my little tree-frog.
once jeff was there (our original steersman that we had during practice), we were ALL smiles.
hanging out between races with quincy.
right after we WON! me and my biggest fan.
L to R: jeff, rhonda, me, heidi, tricia, hollie.
that means we're winners :)
not to BRAG or anything.....but look at the size of our trophy!
afterwards, we had a celebratory beer at the beer garden with all of our supporters. thanks SO much to everyone who came out to cheer us on: my husband and kids, my mom, the watson family, mitch, wendy, the brown's.....i appreciate all of you!
