Race for the Cure 5k Race

Monday, May 13, 2013

Saturday's 5k run was a success in that I finished. My time wasn't bad considering I was sick most of last week & no workouts. I placed 5th in my age group. Time was 25:12 It amazes me some of the competition that is in my age group. As you will see, 1st place guy ran it in 20:45. That is quick for our age group. Time to put that race behind me & get ready for this Saturday's 5k.

Shout out to my wonderful and fabulous wife for getting up early to support her family at the runs. She is not a early bird like me and my daughter, but yet she gets up and gets everyone ready to go run. Thank you baby!

Jayleigh did AWESOME! She ran her 4th run this year. She ran her 50 yard dash like it was nothing. Now she is prepping for her next race Saturday too Great job baby girl! TEAM SHADDEN is proud of you!

    That's an awesome time! You should be proud of it, I'd take nearly twice as long as that.

    This is such a "family" it! Jayleigh is growing up so fast. Wish I could "shrink" my two and do it all over again, lol.

Way to go on finishing strong Eric and also teaching Jayleigh how to exercise and have fun. Hope your wife had a wonderful Mothers Day!

That is a great time! Your age group is a very difficult one where we live as well. In fact, there's a 43 year old guy here that routinely finishes 5 K races in 16 to 18 minutes. Yea - no chance of catching him!

Your daughter is just darling! Very cute! I think it's great you have the whole family there participating. Just keep running and be happy every time you do the best you can do that day.
