Run For Jon

We had a fun weekend. We all went to Peru for the annual Run for Jon. It was a long 9 hour drive but the kids were as good as could be expected.

I ran in the stroller division and got first place in for the women! (I won’t tell you that not only was I the only women with a jogger, but the only PERSON with a jogger!)



I got my very first Run for Jon Apple Trophy!


Matt ran along with me to keep me company, but don’t worry, I didn’t cheat. I pushed the stroller the whole time. Spencer loved rolling over the gravel. He thought that was great, and I loved the way his cheeks jiggled up and down. It was as fast and as far as I have run since he was born, but surprisingly, I am not sore.


The girls ran in the kids fun run. They ran with Emily and Katelyn Mead. Lucy’s favorite part was using the porta potty’s. I think she went four or five times an hour. Emma enjoyed all of the benefits that the orchard dirt had to offer.

    How fun. I know Daddy sure was sad he couldn’t be there. By the way… Tell Emma that it sure is nice of her to let her baby brother have her face. At least his hair will hopefully be shorter so you can tell them apart.

    I love those pictures! It looks like so much fun! I can’t wait until I can take Casey up there so he can appreciate the scenery. I showed Casey all the pictures with lots of enthusiasm…and all he could say was “Is that CORN?! Is all of Peru in a field or something?”

    Good for you for still running. I totally miss our running group days. I just don’t have as much fun going by myself. It’s so fun to see your blog and get updated on your life! 3 kids now, wow! They are so cute with their big brown eyes. Where are you guys living?
