Spud Day... 5K


Yesterday was the famous Shelley Spud Day and for the last couple of years my dad has been running the 5K. This year was the first time any one dared run against my dad and it just so happened to be Travis. So my mom and I woke up bright and early to go and cheer them on.

At the first of the race Travis told my dad he was just going to stick by him and than my dad said the next thing he knew he saw Travis taking off. I think Trav's competitive side kicked in and he didn't want the 62 year old man in front of them to beat him.

Kellie and the kids also showed up to cheer them on and we sat on the corner and ate our donuts as all the runners ran past us to the finish line. Maybe next year I'll run instead eating donuts on the sidelines!
