Wow! I can't believe I did it - my first 10k (that's 6.2 miles). Originally I was going to run this race with my sister-in-law Kari, but she hurt her ankle and had to cancel. She's so awesome and has already done a half marathon, so really she had nothing to prove! Anyway, this was the Tour de Pee Vee in Prescott and it was a lot of fun. We stayed with my sister Krista and her family for the night. And since Kari had to cancel on me, I met someone on race day to run with me - a 75 year old man! He totally kept me motivated and even finished a minute before me! He was such a sweet man and it was nice to be able to talk the whole time, instead of concentrating on my legs going numb! ;-) I finished the race under an hour - 59 min and 53 seconds- not to shabby for hills! I got 1st place in my age division (19-29yrs), and the next person was 7 minutes behind me! Yippee! And even though I'm happy with this 9.35 min/mile record, I'm just glad I finished alive! Whew! Next I want to dabble in a triathlon! Anyone want to join me?

Annalise is 3 yrs old and is a smart, beautiful girl. She knows where she's going in life and won't let anyone stop her! She took a ballet class this year and is currently in soccer. Go Planktons! She loves playing with friends and telling jokes. She also loves playing rough with her Daddy -- and anyone else who's tough enough to take the abuse! :-) She's also a great at snuggling!
Ava is our 15 months old and is following right after her sister. She's learning how to throw a pretty mean temper tantrum! She enjoys searching through all the cabinets in the house that are "off-limits" and giving lots of loves. She loves her big sister Annalise. It's so fun to hear them laughing together and chasing one another. And we love all the new words she's learning like, "I wub woo" (I love you).
Well, here I am, searching the web and checking out all my friends/families blogs......and I'm getting envious of all the cute posting........then a lightbulb goes off and I think to myself, "you too can have a blog!". So here I am attempting to pull it off. Hopefully I actually remember to post pictures and entries! I hope you all enjoy seeing bits and pieces of the Larson family!
