June was a fairly busy month especially towards the end. With soccer as usual and two races completed we got around. Soccer wise for my son's team they have been moving between 2nd and 3rd place in their division which is so great despite the crappy reffing we have been experience.
June 20th my son and friend Jacqui made the drive up to Red Deer AB to partake in the 5K Foam Fest. We met up with some Canadian Mudd Queens and ran it with Kathleen. As usual Kathleen and I made it so much fun. I brought my camera along for the race and we got some really great pics. The race itself was very awesome and well organized. It was a massive fun time and I could do that course again and again it was so much fun. If it comes to your area you got to try it out. You won't regret it.
June 27th my son and I did the Color me RAD in Calgary and well lets just say this year (which is our third year) we were disappointed. Having one location to catch the shuttle to the race where as last year they had two locations. One in the south for us people. Then the shuttle to the race wasn't running very often and it was backlogged. The drive to the race on the shuttle was long. Once there they never called out when the waves were to start and also this year there was no bag check so we had to run with our stuff. Once they let people go we always got stopped at each color station. We did really like the liquid color mixed with the powder stuff. The setup itself was OK but this year they didn't have enough porta potties so the lineup was long. We decided three years was enough and it's time we move onto another race to do together. The first two years just ran way more smoothly and was just that much more fun.
Both races my knee held up really good and no major issues. Asthma was well controlled too. It's been great being able to enjoy these without too much worries. With my knee I only went around one obstacle at Foam Fest as I didn't want to aggravate it. The knee sleeve helps protect it and remind me a bit to not be a hero while doing these fun ones. My knee laser treatments are done and the knee is good to go again. So happy and relieved over that. I can giver again for the Spartans. I will also be able to still get my double trifecta.
My next race is July 18th at Rugged Maniac in Calgary with Jacqui, hopefully another friend Kaire and a bunch of the Canadian Mudd Queens. Can't wait and looking forward to trying another new race that came up here.
Not much else to report so will leave you with a few more pics from the last two races. Just looking forward to the next few weekends.
Until Next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
