Event #25 - Rusty Rudder 5k

Ok, let me first apologize for the lack of updates lately. I'm telling you, having a puppy takes up more time than I ever imagined. Its totally worth it (who can resist those sweet puppy dog eyes), but it gets in the way of some other stuff. But enough of that.

About a month ago, we were up at the beach with the whole Ross family for some fun in the sun. As we've done the last few years, we found a race in the Seven Sisters & Two Brothers race series. The race was on the morning of the 4th of July. Mom & Dad had to leave early that morning to catch the ferry up to New Jersey for a wedding so they weren't there for the race, but the rest of the family was and came to cheer us on.

Nate is getting faster every race, and I'm trying my best to keep up! :) Here are our official times:

417th place - Nate Towne - 28:56
485th place - Sara Towne - 30:38

We're still working to get faster, but we're definitely getting there. 785 runners finished the race, and we all ended the morning with some food & drinks at the Rusty Rudder (a favorite Dewey Beach hangout for my friends & I).

Thanks to the family for coming out to cheer us on and for taking some photos for Team G Shock!

Here comes Nate!

And not TOO far behind, there I am!

What's not to like about these races? The beach AND beer? Ok!
