The past week I ran 4 times - totalling 31+ miles. Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and then Saturday for the District 38 fun run. Was the inaugural event - 5K and 10K started at the same time and the 10K followed the 5K course to start -so I ran w/ my oldest daughter for the 5K and then I continued on to finish the 10K. She did really good - finished strong and beat 28 minutes. My second 5K I managed to do about 4 1/2 minutes faster - was really quite warm (mid 70's) throughout - it is October right?
Side note on #12 - he also ran the 10K. The kid has been up to his armpits with Soccer for the past couple of months - that has been his only running. On race day he was actually leading after the 1st 5K - just behind a 13 year old who won the 5K. He faded somewhat on the second, hillier 5K but still managed to come in 4th overall. Proud of him as always. Amazed that he, as well as my daughter can run - and do well - with absolutely no training.
Jealous: Yes. Proud: Yes. I think - with me training for something and them not training - I could still beat them. But I'm not sure - especially in #12's case. Age differences are catching up and impacting us. Oh well.
