Virginia Beach Wicked 10K

Virginia Beach Wicked 10K

Wowsers!  It has been a day-but what a fun one! Our day started with the Virginia Beach Wicked 10K (my most favorite local race).  We decided to save some bucks this year and instead of hiring a babysitter, we pushed the boys-for SIX POINT TWO miles!  I was very worried about how this would go since the longest I’ve pushed them without them trying to kill each other was 4 miles-but they did GREAT!  I am … Read entire article »
