Sweating like Superstars

On Sunday, April 29th we strapped on our running shoes and raced with 8,500 other runners at the Victoria Times Colonist 10k. We competed on Sarah's work team the "Neverblue Neon Sweatbands," hence the beautiful neon bands that adorn our heads in the pictures shown below.The weather was clear & sunny- perfect for working up a sweat. In the end our times were Ben- 50min and Sarah-54min. The times were just OK, they will motivate us to train harder for next year! Next up on the running agenda... the Victoria Marathon? We shall see!

Ben pushing it during the run. Notice the look of agony on his face!

Looking a little bit grotesque but happy after the run along with Gareth from the G Team

ahhh... the Finish Line!

Spring is in the Air!

The grass is green, the tulips are blooming & you can buy Easter chocolate at half-off... Spring is definitely here!

The Strong family gathered from around various North American locations and converged at our place for the Easter Weekend. It is so different hanging out with siblings and parents now that everyone is grown... it is almost fun. Just kidding, it really was fun. The following are a few pics from the past weekend. Enjoy.
