Sophie, Myles and I ran the 5k. Sophie always wants to go at her own pace, while Myles likes to have me with him...although he finds it hilarious to run ahead really fast like he's leaving me behind, and then stop and laugh. Until this race....where he just did not stop the whole second half. Once we hit the turn around and had 1.5 miles of downhill (and again, this was tricky down hill, not easy to run), he was gone. I'd catch glimpses of him, but he was nearly a full minute ahead of me at the finish. In fact, I heard him announced as he crossed the finish while I was still in the woods.
Aside from that, we all started out together with a runner named Blythe. You may start to recognize Blythe by now, she and Sophie run the same pace, so if they are in the same race, they tend to end up together. This race, they were together from start to finish, and we all climbed the first hill together. I was cracking up looking at these pictures wondering what Sophie was saying that had Blythe laughing the entire race....but she's generally pretty perky anyway, so that is her normal, happy face.
