Fair Fun!

I've been meaning to post some of these pictures since last week, but just haven't had the time to get on the computer yet!  My parents came to visit last Tuesday.  The kids were out of school for the county fair Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  We took the kids Wednesday night to ride some rides and look through all the animals that were being shown. 

We had a pretty good time.  Several of the local kids were showing.  I was really shocked at how many kids were participating.  One of Bre's friends won Grand Champion rabbit and made $5800 at the sale!  Needless to say, next year we may end up with a few show rabbits in the backyard!  That's college money!

For a training recap... I'm only on week two of the marathon training, and it is pretty intense.  My half is a little over a month away with the full marathon to follow in February.  Sunday's are when we do our long runs.  This Sunday is a 9 miler.  Last Sunday the 8 miler was so tough!  I didn't realize how hot it actually was when we set out that afternoon.  I actually ran by where we park every two miles to get a drink of water.  I felt so defeated when it was over, along with some crazy tan lines.  I must remember the sunscreen!  Today was a 5 miler, and I ended up with a blister!  Not too thrilled about that either.  I knew when I started that this was going to be tough, but I can't wait to cross that finish line!
