Lou Gehrig Roseville 5k/10k Run/Walk
Before we get to my run, let me tell you a little about Conner's run.
First, Conner was just as nervous as the rest of us. He got to see the 5 and under group run the 1/4 mile, so it gave him an understanding of what needed to be done. When it was his time, I took off down the track to take some pictures of Conner running. For the whole race, Conner stayed at the front of the pack. On his way back, his shoe kept falling off. Erin and I had forgotten to check his shoes. But he still finished in the top 10. Not bad for a 6 year old racing with 10 and under.
For my race, I was tired after the first mile. Which concerned me. I wasn't sure if this was going to be a good race. The track was on a bike trail and when up and down the whole way. Very few flat areas, and 3 or 4 pretty good sized hills. A great location to jog on weekends, and I hope to practice there in the Spring. Even with being tired, I did not stop to walk or get water (didn't train for water).
Erin beat her time by 3 minutes and had a really good race. Probably thanks to all her hill work. This team thing is working for us, game on folks, game on.
