5k Today

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.

My three little runners! My daughter is showing off her medal!
