5K fun run/walk
Today we woke up early (6:30 am on a Saturday) and went to the park for the Teach the Children 5K. We ran along the Jordan Parkway trail, so I decided I would stay back with the boys because I was worried about them running along the Jordan River. I am a proud, happy mom. Nathan (9 yrs.) passed us all and finished in 38:40 minutes. Benjamin (7 yrs.) insisted mom hold his hand so I would keep pace with him. Benjamin and I finished in 42:50 minutes. Benjamin was so happy that we passed dad. Aaron came in at 43:20 minutes. When we started the race I was a little sad that I would have to “stay back” with the boys and not run the whole way, but it was on of the best mornings together as a family. Ben and I would run for a while then speed walk for Ben to catch his breath. (He has allergies so bad he can barely breath through his nose.) I just had to post how much fun we had and how glad I am that we woke up early today.
