Fairs and Marathons all in the same weekend!

Okay , so this is the first blog entry I have every written, but I found it necessary to let you know what the Mambo has been participating in on their spare time, and both events came crashing down on the same weekend.

The Mambo has been volunteering their time promoting Feria Para Aprender, an awesome fair teaching Hispanic families about education in the U.S. Even though Saturday gave us torrential downpour and tornado warnings, we were able to get 4,200 people to the fair. It was amazing! If you would like to read more about this fabulous event, you can check out the great article in the Statesman.

Some of the Mambitos have also been training very hard for the AT&T Austin Marathon & Half Marathon, which was this past Sunday, February 17. Everyone did a great job running, cheering, and celebrating after the run. It was a very busy weekend, but very mentally and physically satisfying!
