Gate River Run

Well yep, I finished the run.  It was a beautiful day.  My time wasn't that great.  I think it was 1 hour and 49 minutes.   I think over 9000 people ran it.    I'll be posting more pictures later.  This is me right after the finish line walking it off.  Sherry, Mark, and Autumn came down and stayed at the beach.  Saturday after the race we went down to the landing and ate Mexican.  Autumn had fun running around in the fountain with green water.  We soaked our feet and my feet were aching in the cold St. John's river, Mike and I took her to the toy store, then we went home to rest and recover from the race, and then Mark and Sherry cooked for us, Salmon, and sausage, and lots of little other things.  We all had fun, and today spent the day in the sun.  Sherry's friend Katie came down with her little boy Drew also and we all had fun at the beach, Autumn tried flying her barbie kite, she's getting so big, I can't believe she'll be 5 at the end of the month.  The rest of the day Mike and I have just rested and took it easy.  It's been a nice weekend.
