This was really a fun race! My daughter and I had done the Tri for the Cure Duathlon for 6 years. Since I was flying in from Kentucky this year and I couldn't bring my bike, Lizzie, with me, I decided to run the 5K and be there to cheer her when she crossed the finish line. Of course, in all of the previous years, she's been there cheering me on because she is a little speed demon energizer bunny!
Her daughter decided to run the 5k also so we had 3 generation participation. It was really fun! My granddaughter is 12 and just starting to run so had only been working on 2 miles. She finished third in the 17 and under category - so proud of her. My daughter finished second in her age category and owned the running part! I finished first out of 1, haha! - my usual finish because there is usually no one else that old - 66 - running/biking! I took a minute and about 30 seconds off my best time which was 3 years ago in Hawaii!
It was so much fun to do this with Shae and Jayden! I hope the three of us can continue the tradition for many more years! I love running!
