Race 15

Well today is March 5, 2011 on Saturday. It’s kindof a special day due to the fact that it’s the first race to run with my son David! He took on his 1st 5k. My little son Austin also ran the mile as well as Selena. We were hoping for sunny skies and nice decent weather. Instead, we woke up to misty rain, wind, and a bit nippy. However, being the determined runners we are :) we got up and ran our race. It was so neat because we ran it in my mom’s neighborhood and one thing that inspired me is to see my mom at mile 2 waiting there to cheer me on. She actually started running with me and it made me speed up. :)

Of all the races, I had left my video camera in the car since it was raining, so unfortunately I was not able to capture those cool moments of my kids crossing the finish line. They did such a great job and I’m so proud of them! Austin, 7 almost 8 yrs. old, ran the mile in 8:46 Selena–10, ran it in 7:32. Dave ran his first 5k at 22 min!! He came in 9th place! And…(drum roll :)) I ran my best 5k time at 33:46! I was going for 35 minutes so I was very happy! It was tough being that the weather was like it was.

Next stop? 1/2 marathon in Sugar Land on March 27th! Doing the best I can and on I go! ;)
