|Thank God I found a place to wear that red Sparkle Skirt again!|
I’m dressed like that because this morning I did the Watermelon 5K in Winter Park. It’s tradition. We’ve done it every year since 2008, or maybe earlier, we were trying to figure that out today. But it’s a fabulous 5K that brings out thousands of people to celebrate the 4th and get a little exercise in too.
This year we all decided to be slow pokes and walk it. The gang of slow pokes ….

But just like every year we had a great time and I’m so very glad we went out and did it.
Yes, you read that correctly, it took us almost an hour to complete it. I say, shave about 5 minutes off that time, since it took forever to cross the starting line. I told you, the plan was just to mosey along. We were among some of the last to finish. Go us!
And of course I ate my weight in watermelon afterwards. (sorry no photos, I had no free hands, they were full of watermelon) OK, I only had two pieces, but they were giant pieces. And then we went to IHOP afterwards where I did eat my weight in pancakes. OK, again, not really. I actually got one of their lighter dishes, some sort of harvesty grainy blueberry pancakes with some Egg Beaters. It was flippin delicious for a “light” meal.
And that’s it. Now I’m beat. I might not have worked too too hard, but I did wake up at 5:45am on a holiday. Argh. Later today we are going over to Jade’s for a BBQ and then out to Celebration to see J sing. It’s going to be a fab Fourth! Hope you’re having a great one!!!!
