Today was a busy day. In addition to Owen having a basketball tournament with the Monstars, we started our day early at 7am at the Amarillo Marathon. We relayed it (6.5 miles each) with Jennifer Hawley and Brett.
I took the first leg, then handed off to Aimee.
I finished my leg in right under 52 minutes, and she did her leg at a little over 57 minutes—which is really fast considering she used to run at a 10+ minutes per mile pace.
Then, while Jennifer was running the third leg, we booked it over to Amarillo High School where Mission 2540 was setting a Guinness World Record (potentially) in most people doing burpees at once. We met Owen and Ellie there and were among 280+ people at the event.
CrossFit Games champion Rich Froning was there for the festivities.
A drone with a camera was there to capture footage for the Guinness folks.
We did burpees together for two minutes and then it was over.
We headed back to the marathon finish line to catch Brett’s finish for our team.
Ronald McDonald handed out medals. (Proceeds benefitted Ronald McDonald House Charities.)
He was very tall.
Our finish time of 3:39 put us in 4th place as a relay team.
Then we spent the rest of the day watching Owen play basketball. A very active start to a busy weekend!
