McDonald's River Bluff 5k Run
Mom, Haley and me after the 5k
Mom and I won medals in our age groups!
I got 3rd and she got 1st!!
Me, Ronald and Haley. He was slightly
3 weekends, 3 5K runs!!! The past 2 races I have been running in the high 26 minute range. My goal this race was to break 26 minutes. As I approached the 3 mile marker I was right at 25 minutes.....I knew that I could do the last tenth of a mile in less than a minute. So I turned my iPod to Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" and cruised on in to the finish line with a time of 25:54!!!
Haley did very well this race with a time of 33:21. Mom was able to run the entire race and she finished with a time of 37:37. It was a beautiful day and I was able to enjoy it with 2 of my best friends :)
I'm not sure when the next 5K will be!!! But we are all going to be running in the 4 mile Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. If you've never done it, you should try it--it's so much fun!
