The Excellent Adventures of Kim and Kev

Monday, February 13, 2012


There is nothing that I love more than a sweet baby in a Bumbo seat.

Especially if that baby is my nephew.
Seeing his sweet face just brightened my day!

Even if I did have to run a race in the freezing ( to me!) temperatures!

I have registered for winter races before but have always lucked out on the weather not being so bad.

And to be honest ( and less dramatic), I was perfectly fine once the race got started.

It was just interesting and funny to watch me pin my bib on while shivering.

The race was to benefit St. Lawerence Place. 

The event not only had an awesome turnout, but it was so well organized and fun. 

Even if I did not run the best race of my life, I still finished with an 11 minute mile pace. ( I did walk/run for the last half)  My goal is to cut that WAY down this year.  I am hoping that our treadmill will help me with some speed work.

It is hard to be a fast runner when you have manatee in your genes.

The best part of the race was that Chick-fil-A handed out WARM chicken biscuits at the finish line!

Just because I am not eating chicken + biscuits right now didn't mean that someone in my family couldn't enjoy it.

Like Kev.

He got the biscuit.  I got the banana. 

And we  both had a great start to a very busy day!


  1. Congratulations on your successful run! As always, I am so proud of you and the fact that you really stick to your goals. Love you, Aunt Sandi

  2. What a cute picture of Tanner! Caroline never really got to use her Bumbo seat because her legs are too chunky. I guess she got the manatee gene too!

  3. Hey, Kim! Somehow I missed this blog entry! I guess it was b/c I was traveling back from FL. Anyway, I am very proud of you for keeping up your fitness goals as well as helping out a charity. Way to go!! Love, mom
