The past 3 years, Maurer Party of 5 has participated in the Blue Bell Fun Run in some form or fashion. A&A&C ran the Kids Mile the past 2 years and Wes and I would run one of the longer runs. This year, I had to help work the event as part of my coaching duties. Caleb decided to go stay at a friends house so that left Wes with A&A. They all decided to run the 5K. I admit I was a little leary of A&A going the full 3 mile trek. I thought surely they'd give out after about a mile. I set myself up along the finish line about 30 minuntes into the race thinking I'd see them 10 minutes later, putting their finish time at 40 minutes. I was blown away when I saw them crossing the line shortly after I sat down. They finished with a chip time of 31:20!!! Amazing! I was SO proud. They only walked a very short bit and they were rewarded with all the ice cream they could eat.
Being silly before the run.
Toppe & Grandpa partcipated too.
Missing Caleb before the start.
3 great finishes!

Worn out and taking it easy with ice cream in hand.
