Our school held a 5k race as a fundraiser. I was glad to participate. The course was a little off, my Garmin said 3.21. It was put on by non-runners which is why I think they weren’t too specific about the mileage. I would have liked it to be accurate, but it is their first year and it was a fundraiser. My time was 36.19, which isn’t my best, but I’m ok with it. It’s not like I was going to win my age category or anything 🙂 It was fun to be out there supporting our school. My pace was 11:19. My fastest 5k was a 10:32 pace. definitely not my best, but I’m ok with that.
After the 5k they had 2 kid fun-runs. A 1 mile run for the older kids and a half-mile run for the little ones. My 10-year-old did the mile, and my 7 and 5 year olds did the half-mile. It was a lot of fun for them. All of the kids got medals, which was nice. I think that makes them want to get back out there and try again. They have been wearing them proudly all day.
