I led a VERY active week and my body is definitely letting me know. I already blogged this, but last Sunday I ran 8 miles, did 2 miles on Monday, played a double header in softball Tuesday and ran 5 miles on Wednesday. I woke up Thursday SO sore. Softball uses muscles I am not used to using! My back, shoulders and quads were killing me. I had a golf tourney to play in and luckily that loosened me up quite a bit. I love golf- I am not very good but I think I am getting better. I played in a 2nd tournament on Friday as well. I won closest to the pin and longest putt for the women! But....I was the only woman in the tournament, ha ha.
The golf life is a hard life:
Friday night of the Corder picnic is the big talent show night in which my girls and their friend sing a Taylor Swift song every year. This year they won 2nd place in their age group!
My dad also competes each year with his ventriloquist act- his bear Sarge. He won 1st place in the humor category doing an old Abbott and Castelo act about baseball.
Saturday was a day of fun and games. I started the morning off doing the 5K race and got 2nd place with a time of 27:30. Not my fastest race but I don't do well in the humidity. My friends ran the race as well:
The girls entered the bike race. They competed in the under 7 age group. Chloe got 2nd and Bg got 4th (out of 4). Poor Bg's helmet was too big and she couldn't see, but everyone got a big laugh out of watching her ride.
Next up was the pedal tractor pull. Chloe got 3rd in the under 50 weight group. She was a VERY bad sport about it and this mama was NOT happy with her about it. The top 3 places were within 2 inches of each other so it was close. Bg chose to nap rather than participate.
We followed the tractor pull with the sidewalk chalk contest. Even though I am not artistic at all, they needed another contestant in the 19 and up category, so I jumped in, as I was sure to place with only 3 drawers. Chloe did not place but I did!!! Drumroll please....3rd place out of 3! I am going to be a sore loser here, but the people who beat me were an art teacher and her mom. They should NOT have allowed professionals. I wont spend my $5 prize in one place.
The kids had fun riding rides, especially the bucking bull. They had several friends at the picnic so they y always had someone to ride with.
