The three big kids and I woke up on a Saturday morning in July to participate in the Pioneer Celebration 5K. The kids had been practicing their running a little bit and I had been running a few times on Saturdays in addition to my other work outs.
Excitement was in the air the morning of the race.
The kids and I headed off as the gun signaled the start of the race.
I ran my best 5k ever, with a time of 25:35. I was followed by Ben who had a time of 26:55. Next came Emmy with a time of 32:00. Hyrum finished the race with a time of 47:10.
I placed 5th in my age category and Emmy finished 2nd in her age category and Ben came in 1st place out of the boys ages 6-9.
