    Our Weekend ~A 100K

    Monday, May 20th, 2013

    I spent the whole weekend watching people run.

    If only watching burned as many calories and the actual running…

    Friday night we went to the end point for the first part of a 3 Day run my husband was doing.

    My Iphone saved the day!

    My boys played it while waiting for their dad to finish his 25K race!

    He finished at around 10pm.

    Saturday morning we got up bright and early to be at the start of the 50K at 8am.

    He is amazing.

    We read books, played with toys in the vehicle, ate snacks, and even went on a hike while waiting the 10hrs for Nick to finish.

    10hrs of constant going!

    It makes me tired just to think about it!

    The boys were really happy with the next days location (they were at different places each day).

    It was a mud fest.

    It had rained the previous night!

    They played hard, lost boots, got stuck, and were VERY dirty.

    Getting ready for the last leg!

    A 25K through the mud!

    Three days of pushing himself!

    They found a nice pool of mud water to clean up in.

    Then they preceded to eat, and eat, and eat.

    He did it!!!!!!

    So proud of my amazing husband!

    This was so incredibly difficult and he did it anyway!

    I am reminding myself today that I did not run a 100K so I am not allowed to eat like it.

    I have a small problem with sympathy running.

    My husband runs and all I can think is, “We need to eat we ran a big race today!”.

    If only I was burning sympathy calories also…

    Greenleaf State Park ~Oklahoma

    Thursday, May 16th, 2013

    We went to Greenleaf State Park the Saturday before Mother’s Day.

    That was my request.

    I just want to be in the woods is what I told my husband.

    We went on the trail on the other side of the lake.

    Check out this link for a good map of this trail.

    The trail is marked really well after the bridge.

    It can be a little tricky finding the bridge the first time though.

    It is around a 17 mile loop trail.

    We only did a little over 5 miles though.

    Great Mother’s Day gift!

    *I forgot! Lots of poison ivy on close trails so I would advise pants not shorts for this trail!
