Even though I just raced 2 days ago, I decided to join Nate in our local 5k race! My mom and brother came to cheer us on and watch the kids! Plus, my dad also decided last minute to do it! I think the kids were happy with our decision to do the race too! They do love Eat’n Park cookies 🙂
We got in a good warm up while the kids were playing. Then they watched us do some striders before we started. Having them there is the best!
It was a fast start… especially for Nate! He ran his first mile in 5:25!
It was pretty humid, the course was a little long, there was a really steep hill at the end…
but my dad, Nate, and I powered through!
And we all had great races! Nate even got 2nd overall and I got first female! There were 148 total finishers!
We changed our clothes and headed to the pool! I think Ellie is pretending to break the finish line tape like me 😉
The water felt perfect! We even got to swim some laps in between playing!
Then we had an awesome cook out with family and the kids somehow managed to stay awake to see fireworks!!
