We have a 1:16 10ker in the house!! She did great!! We had a few random moments of unplanned activities....like running right out of her shoe and having to go back and get it....and having to stop in the first mile for me to take off my arm warmers and give them to her....and getting hugs from her teacher who braved the cold and the Sports Basement cheer group. It was pretty awesome to be out there with her for 6.2 miles. She was definitely one of the youngest I saw out there and got lots of support and hoots and hollars from other runners.
Sophie ran an awesome 39 minute 5k! She told me this morning that when she runs she just likes to "cruise" and not really be thinking about going fast. Well, her "cruising" speed keeps getting faster. Brian said he saw her just running along talking to people, even running backwards at one point talking to the guy behind her. She seemed to have a great time!
Myles went all 'trail runner' on us and used 57 of the 60 minute limit for the course : ) I'm not sure he had all that great of a time as it was freakishly cold and there were no medals, so it was one of those mornings that if you don't love running for the sake of running....just for the medal that didn't exist.....well, it's not gonna be your day.
A full recap and lots of pictures later.....
