get lucky 7k!

this weekend my parents visited us! it has been HA-AMZING and we have loved every minute of it. lots more to blog about on that later, however i wanted to quick get some pics up of the race my dad and paul ran today! it was called the ‘get lucky 7k’ in downtown minneapolis. so. much. fun. it was FREEEEEEEEEEEEZING cold and i was SUUUUUUUPER glad i wasn’t running it, but it was really fun to watch and cheer them on! plus, it was perfect for people watching. one of my favorite things to do. lots of people dressed for st. patty’s day and ready to run! the race was really well done. bagpipers at the finish line, lots of fun irish music over the speakers, and really sweet medals for all the finishers.

also, my dad beat paul.because he’s a stud. i mean, paul’s a stud too, but there is a special daddy-o shaped spot in this little heart of mine just for him and i was really proud of him :)   so proud of both of them for finishing! whoop!

before the run. decked out in green!
