I love when your hometown has a 5K, it's like a little mini reunion. I have no idea how we ended up, but we couldn't have done too bad. We started dead last in the line up, and we were not last when we finished. But we had fun !
A- tried the one mile fun run for kids. She's never participated in an event like this, so she was quite nervous and unsure she wanted to do it. So my friend T and I kind of walk/ran with her for awhile then let her run ahead and go on her own and she met us up again for the ending. Which was nice because it made her feel more comfortable, but it meant that I did not get a picture of her crossing the finish line for her first race, because I was with her. I saw several people taking picture's for the park district, so hoping to sift through those and maybe there's one with her in it.
I was mad at myself for forgetting to have someone take one of A, my friend T who walked with me and myself. Otherwise, this is all I got.
She wouldn't go up towards the front, she was too nervous she wouldn't know where to go, she wanted to be the last one. Silly kid. Although, we were the last one's in the 5K line up too. Boy, neither one of us are looking for an edge are we?
T- helping A- at the snack table.
She was happy she finished the race and gave it a try. She's ready for her next one she said.
Me and a couple of high school peeps !!! So good to see them.
