This was our 3rd year attending the Prairie Creek Redwoods Race in Orick, CA. This year we were a bit more out of shape and hadn’t been to the gym in a while so we opted for walking the race, which was fine by us. We finally got to really enjoy the views and scenery … More 3rd Annual Prairie Creek Redwoods 5K Race 2016
The second thing on my parents to do list while in California this trip was to visit Lake Tahoe. Even though I couldn’t make it up on Monday when they headed up, Asher and I made our way up the next day.
My parents came to visit this month and my dad had 2 requests: an Oakland A’s game and Lake Tahoe.
Kendra had one thing she wanted to do while in California, the Winchester House of Sarah Winchester in San Jose California…
Kendra arrived a few weeks ago and we did a lot. After picking her up, drinking some wine and calling it a night. The next day we started her trip going to Yosemite National Park as we wanted to try to avoid the crowds. (this only partly worked)
So far, we have called Modesto home for a year and a half. We still struggle through the warm, ok HOT summers but the mild winters are a win for everyone.
Last year, this was not only the first time they held the Prairie Creek 5k/Half Marathon but it was also the first race I ever ran. This year we returned to run it again. (Here is last year’s post)
After Thanksgiving we had 2 back to back weeks with family!
So, Travis bought us tickets last month to go to the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Concert, mostly cause U2 was going to be playing and I am married to a U2 Fan.
Well, I did it. I ran my 1st 5K race. My goal was to run the 3.1 miles in 35 minutes, as I was sort of comfortably running it in 40 minutes, when I was training with Asher leading up to the race.
