A Little Weekend Fun!

What a great weekend we had! Friday, we attended the post change of command. I love military ceremonies, I know some people think they can be a bit boring but I love all the pomp and circumstance.

Saturday morning we got up and headed off to Anacoco (about 20 minutes from us) for the Tail Twisting 10k. This race was supporting the local Lions Club which does a lot of great community service acts to help their local area.

It was an out and back course that took us the whole length of the town (it is a tiny tiny place) and the views were amazing. We ran parallel to Vernon Lake and the weather was absolutely perfect! Even with the crazy hills I knew I was a little faster than normal, and was surprised to see that I shaved off 4 minutes from my last 10k. I was even more surprised to see that I placed 1st in my age group and was the 2nd overall female!



We had the best time running this race and can't wait to participate next year. The best part was how nice the people were, that is one of my favorite things about living in the South.

Afterwards we headed off to Lake Charles to have lunch and do some shopping. My wardrobe has been lacking lately and I found some great sales at Target, Khols, Gap, Old Navy and Maurices.

Sunday was more low key, it was spent doing laundry, grocery shopping and getting things ready for our trip to Florida this weekend for Easter! :)

I hope you all had a great weekend!
