We did it!

We did it!  My dad had a goal of finishing his first 5k under 40 minutes and I'm PROUD to say we did it!  His official time was 39:32!  He did great and I'm SO proud of him!

A funny thing happened a few feet from the finish line.  My dad had started to walk and I told him, "Dad, you can't walk - we're almost there and you'll come in under 40!"  So I started jogging in front of him instead of beside him (to motivate).  Well, Dad decided to sprint in and hubs decided to grab the back of my shirt and hold me back so that Dad could pass me.  I promise I wasn't going to finish in front of him, but hubs had to make sure!

One more side note - my dad placed 6th out of 10 in his age group!  GO DAD!!!

I'll post pictures and more details tomorrow.  :) 

P.S.  They didn't call with my sister's scan results on Friday.  We're calling them today.

Happy Monday, Ya'll!
