Tomorrow at 7 a.m. is the 2nd Run Through the Roses, or better known for me as "The Mad Dash Between A Garage Sale and A Soccer Game." Really, I do have a garage sale (supposed to be getting ready for it now, urg!) and a soccer game for my son all during the same morning.
This race was supposed to be held last year but was cancelled after the tornadoes came through. Everyone is excited to be able to have it this year, and the organizer even carried over our entries from last year to this year. They've added a 5K for the first time.
Our community does a great job preparing for the race. Neighbors plant knock-out roses all along the course in their yards, and the city plants some too. Here are the ones in front of the Madison Fire Station. I managed to snap this picture on the way home from Wal-Mart and on the way to tutoring. "Why are you taking a picture, Mommy?" was heard from the backseat!
