It’s May Day here in these parts and Port Coquitlam knows just how to celebrate!
On Saturday, PoCo hosted a “family fun mile run” following the path of the May Day parade. Guitar Man and I thought it would be a great thing to do! The weather is perfect here this week and I was excited to participate with Romeo by my side. We headed down the the sign up tent around 9:30am and received our run numbers. GM, Buddy and myself were the only ones to run this year. They started the fun run with a 15 min aerobic stretch, and then the run began!
All was going well Buddy was ahead, GM and I were running together and then the first turn came….Too many people for Romeo and I so we began to walk. Guitar Man ran on ahead and Buddy was beginning to slow down! It was funny to think that I was participating in a run. I HATE TO RUN. Really I do. I was trying to be a supportive but was thinking why am I doing this???? Turn number 2 and Romeo was doing well, and we did not have many people near us, so I decided to run it….BIG mistake!
Down I went…I’m fine but my ego is a bit bruised! 🙂 I made it to the finish and Guitar Man ran it with me! I had a fun time and I’m thankful I could run it and support GM. 🙂
After the run we meet up with Gator and her friend.
They kept a spot for us so we could all enjoy the parade.
It was a beautiful day with temperatures right around 77*F.
We all enjoyed and had a fun morning celebrating May Day 2012!!!
Grace and Peace,
