Anniversary run and rugby

This past weekend marked 17 years of marriage for Brad and me!!

Saturday was the big day, which we started with a short shakeout run on the Portland waterfront:
We didn't run the Portland Rock 'n' Roll this year, but since we were in town, we checked out the expo to get swag (free Chobani!) and check out the exhibits. I scored some cheap Altra running shoes!
I had to get my picture with PeeDee, the PDX carpet!
Then it was off to Lents Park in southeast Portland for Kayla's final rugby game.

The Grant Generals (blue) took on the Beaverton Barbarians (orange) for the Rugby Oregon state championship. Introducing the teams before the game (Kayla's sixth from the left in the black shorts):
Always lots of smiles from this young lady!
And I have two CE2 students who play for Beaverton (Akanesi on the left and Kennedy second from the right):
We'd never seen rugby before, so aunts Kari and Vicki gave us a crash course. It was INTENSE! Those girls played hard the whole time! And I got to see Kayla, Akanesi and Kennedy make some good plays. Kayla almost took off the shorts of a Beaverton player! ;)
In the end, Grant lost 34-36. SO close. Both teams played their hearts out. Everyone was so gracious at the end:
Kayla will attend Northern Arizona University next year and hopes to keep playing in college. GO KAYLA!

After the big game, Brad and I hit Frack Burger on Barbur for some lunch. Then it was home to rest up and prep for Sunday's half marathon.

A nice, low-key day :)
