Scurry Recap

This past weekend provided much needed family time!! 

Saturday morning Scott, RJ and I met with up several of the Mom's Run This Town girls for one of our favorite local races, The Shamrock Scurry. The Scurry is an annual 5K event benefiting Killearn Methodist Church. Their event is extremely well organized and we look forward to participating each year. This year RJ ran the 1 mile fun run so he wouldn't burn out before his last basketball game later that day. Scott and I ran the 5K together. We each had a goal, Scott pushed me to try and get under the 27 minute mark. I encouraged him to beat his Scurry time from last year.

The Scurry is hilly and tough! RJ had a great time during the fun run as did Scott and I during the 5K! It was so awesome to have RJ at the finish line waiting for us. He even snapped a finish line for me, so sweet! I finished with an official time of 26:19, Scott finished with an official time of 28:01…we all three had a new PR regardless of the big hill(s). The MRTT group had several PR's this year as well. Once everyone had finished we enjoyed a yummy pancake breakfast together. It was so fun to recap the race and enjoy a few more laughs together before everyone rushed off to other activities.

celebrating with RJ! 

So proud of my hubby! 

I have to share a funny story that came up during breakfast! My little friend Kara told her mom " I saw Ms. Mitzi and just followed her the whole time." I loved hearing that I was her bunny that morning and had helped her reach her own PR without even knowing it. Later in the day when the race photos were posted I realized she had actually beaten me to the finish line! I was her bunny until the last .1 miles, she wanted that PR and she pushed for it! This made my day, I can't think of a sweeter soul to have "beaten by". LOL! 

Kara, Christine from MRTT then Me in the green! 

Love these two sweet babies! 

Shortly after all the Scurry excitement we headed to RJ's last basketball game. It was a close tough game that went into overtime! The parents were on the edge of our seats the entire game. Sadly, our team lost in the overtime. The kids played so well and so hard. It was a fun game, regardless of the score! He received the defensive star at the end of the game for not ever giving up on the court! RJ is already asking when he can play basketball again so we are currently researching camps and private lessons to get him ready for next year. For now we are focusing on the start of his baseball season, there's never a dull moment! 
Last Basketball Game

Speaking of baseball, the remainder of Saturday was spent on the first base line of Dick Howser stadium cheering on the FSU Seminole baseball team. The Seminoles lost in a not close game with Maryland; however,  it was a gorgeous day. I loved spending the afternoon relaxing with my two guys! 

The weekends when we cruise along from one activity to the next are always tough but fun at the same time!! I just love having the weekends with the two of them as I said before it is never a dull moment in our lives. 


  1. I still need to figure out what I'm wearing to my local shamrock shuffle... hmm!

    1. Hi! If there's an Old Navy near you they have tons of FUN stuff out for St. Patty's Day!

  2. Participating in these kinds of events is a good bonding experience while also having to exercise in the process as well, don't you agree? That must have been a very competitive match-up for it to go on overtime. Even though RJ lost, I believe it was an all out effort that he and his team exerted right? Good day!

    1. Absolutely! He learned a great lesson and the team is attending basketball camp together in June. It was well worth the time and effort for him to take part in all of this.
