I ran my first 5k on Spud Day. I ran it in 32:46 and placed 31 out of 66 runners. Not bad for my first run, considering I just started training in June.

This year my family competed in the annual Spud Tug, where the winner gets bragging rights and the loser... mashed potatoes. Emilie and Steven wanted to compete with their cousin Aimee, but they needed few more people. They recruited two more kids and than talked their stepdad into it. It all goes by weight, but because they had an adult on their team, they had to compete adult teams. They won their first two matches, including the match that included the heavyweight in the picture. There were 4 more just like him on his team and my little family stood their ground. They beat them!?!? The third round Emilie and Trey weren't so lucky. Note the mashed potato bath.
