It Starts!

Today was the beginning of Miss Ohio week...

This morning at 8:30am Abby and I ran the Miss Ohio 5k in which Abby placed 3rd in her grouping and obtained her goal of breaking the 30 min mark with a time of 29 min 30 sec... way to go Abby! We won't mention where I placed, however I did finish which was my goal.

The pictures to the left are taken before the race and give you an inside look into Abby's stretching technique.

After completing the race it was off to her host home to be ready to go to the Ontario Festival to sign autograpghs and such. At 11:00 am she was under Miss Ohio rules which basically means that she has to be with a chaperone at all times and I have to control my urges to hug/kiss her so as not to get her in trouble. Fortunately her chaperone, Ginny, is reasonably tolerant of my affections and takes incredible care of her during the competition...Thanks Ginny.

I am very excited for Abby as she competes this week. I only hope that I can share my exitement with all of you with daily updates during the week. I am not nearly as good at this blogging thing as she is but I will do my best to keep you all up to date and share some pictures as well.
