Today was the Shoney’s 5K in Nashville. This is a race to benefit the Metro Police Department-all proceeds go to them. So of course, Daddy, Chad, and I ran in it. Chad had to run in it, with his class from the academy. They actually had to run in formation and “sing” cadences the entire race. Daddy was running with his K-9 group, and I joined them. Daddy and I, with his group, actually ran in formation right behind Chad’s class the entire race (except for the very end). That was cool, because it was really neat to hear them sing their cadences-made the race fly by! I was glad I was able to keep up with all of them, too. (Although they were running a pretty slow pace, to keep in formation). We had a great time! Mom and Lesa watched the kiddos for me while I ran, and Shshr took some great pictures with my camera-thanks, girls!! Definitely looking forward to running this race again next year!

Chad with his flag-he was the flag bearer, so he had to carry it the entire time they ran!

We stopped by Daddy’s office on the way home-Josei was thrilled to get to see where Pappy works!
