I ran our local 5K this morning. It was not a big race, but we do have some pretty good local runners who showed up.
I finished FIRST female, and third overall with a time of 22:00 (7:05 average pace). Woo hoo! My last 5K time was 23:33, and then I did a 22:23 for my virtual 5K (on the treadmill). I was super happy with my time and my finish, but even better than how I did is.....
My stinking rotten super awesome totally incredible ELEVEN year old, WON THE ENTIRE RACE with a time of 21:15. There were a lot of kids running in the race and all of them took off crazy fast at the beginning, and every single one of them died within a mile or so. Every single one of them but my Shane. He kept going, and going... As I was picking people off the last mile I kept saying, "Is that my rotten kid up there?" and everyone would laugh. He is unbelievable and just oozing with athletic ability. I am so proud!
They are going to call with the official results and prizes, but it sounds pretty awesome to say that my son and I were the first male and female finishers. Yeah baby!
And to add to my proudness, my awesome 13 year old came and ran as well, and he finished in 25:26 and beat his PR by over five minutes. Yup, I am one proud mama.
Here we are back at home, enjoying victory!
