Hello My name is Bobbie and I think I am a Blogger...........5 Things Friday + Winners!!

1. I have been so absentee from the blogging scene and well just about everything. I know I keep on whining about it but I think I have finally busted out and seeing the light! I now have two half marathons coming up in the fall and a reason to TRAIN!!

2. I finally got the hubs to do a 5k race. 4th of July we ran the Great Buffalo Chase 5k in Frankfort, Ky.
It is held at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. I have never ran this race before but hope to do it again in the future! The top overall winners get $$$$ $2000, $1500 and $1000, I laughed and told my mom I would have to take my $2000 to pay my medical bills from running so dang hard cause I could never run a 16 something 5k~ ha ha ha!!! Overall it was a good race, the hubs wasn't in the best of moods so we didn't even speak or start with each other, I stayed where I could keep an eye on him though:) I passed him a half mile in and kept the lead until the very end. I felt like we both ran a great race, of course with the cash winnings involved the fastest of the fast was out! I think I ended up being 6th overall in my age group and was 142/476 with a time of 26:28. Not sure what place the hubs was in age group but overall was 139/476 with a time of 26:25.

3. Since I have been an absent blogger I have many race reports I still haven't wrote and a couple of giveaways to post! Please hang in there with me, I promise to get them all out soon and I am sorry in advance about post so much stuff all at once and late :/ I have been on vacation this week and am trying to get caught up on top of our big project at home but more on that later!
