Fun Family Fitness - Another Round

And this is only one month late!

We carried on our family tradition of running the Rocket Mile - now that it is 2 years in a row
 plus I am a sucker for making and keeping traditions.

Kibbe Family Participants

We picked up our numbers and shirts (which were INSANELY small)

I was actually surprised Lee ran it this year because he foot was bothering him - but he did and took a minute or so off his time! The mens/dads race really could use some more participants!

The girls cheer me on during the ladies/moms race. I finished in the top three for my age group but not because I had a good time. The 25-29 age group didn't have many participants this year or last year. Let's just say my time this year won't get me a medal for the next 25 years! So I'll relish in the glory of getting a medal for the last time in the next foreseeable future. 

I thought she was going to lose it at the starting line. E insisted she be close to the front - because she had been practicing!

This girl. 

She took off like a rocket and ran the first .25 mile and took the occasional walking break but ran so much and so well it was great. I did have to repeatedly steer her away from the one lane of traffic that was on the road (two lanes were closed). 

She finished and asked where her medal was. 

I knew she didn't get a medal even though she totally rocked out her race. In fact E didn't get a medal either and she was disappointed but another girl from her class didn't get one so I think that softened the blow. She was 8 seconds from 3rd place though - so maybe next year. 

Onward and upward to swim team!


  1. You all did incredible!!! I couldn't believe how R took off!!! Me and my M lost you guys pretty close to the starting line, but wow!

    Congrats on your age group award. . . I have to get about 15-20 years older before I have any chance of an age group award! So, yes, relish the title, until you are in a more popular age group of runners next year! ;)

  2. I have recently started a blog, the info you provide on this site has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work. gym t shirts
