This Friday night, one of the things I've looked forward to came true. I had a 5K race (my last before the half marathon this weekend) which was great. It was humid as could be, but I ended up running it in 21:03. It was slower than I would've liked, but all things considered (night race, humidity, part trail), I was happy. I was the first female and fifth overall.
What was really exciting though was that K.C. ran his first race ever!
The race was for Celebrate Health Day and was held at my gym in conjunction with a member appreciation week. After the 5K, they were holding a 2K, but I didn't sign the boys up because I felt like 1.2 miles was too far for them. When we got there, though, K.C. had other plans (Kaden, too, but he's had a sinus infection and we didn't want him running around.). He asked if he could run it and if I could run it with him.
Jumping over the finish line!
He ended up getting to run it, and run it he did! I was proud of him! We ran almost the whole entire thing - and he held my hand the whole time! It was such a sweet race and by far my favorite run. He was so proud of his ribbon and tshirt.
This race was really fun. I love having my family there! When we went inside for the awards ceremony, Kaden showed off his athletic side on some of the gym equipment. It was too cute!
I can't wait for more races with my boys!
