Holly had games in New Glasgow the day before JM so we went over for those, and I picked up race kits in between the games. LOVE the shirts this year. The Hat, not as much. Its more of a running hat than previous years, light and white, but flimsy and Holly immediately claimed it anyway :)
The race is always Father's Day, so we didnt have much of a Father's Day morning here at home for Scott. But we did the cards and pictures and gifts before Holly and I ran out the door.
|Happy Father's Day!|
Holly and I went over with Toni, who was running the 10 k race. Scott and the other girls came over just before the race, and although I thought they would see us at the start, they actually ended up on the other side of the river so the coats Holly and I carried were with us at the start. Whoops!
|Waiting to Start|
|Annika waiting for us to arrive :)|
|can you spot us?|
|waiting for us to come by again.|
|Taylor taking photos of what we DID NOT see while running :)|
In the last km Holly started to not be as happy and mentioned her sore ankle more often. But she totally ran way more than ever before so it was expected to feel yucky. :)
It was nice to see Scott and the girls again just before we crossed the bridge and headed for the finish line.
the finish was awesome :) as we crossed under the sign on the bridge, Holly started her sprint, and She ran her legs off all the way over the finish line. I was impressed by her energy at the end but I think she had a little too much energy ;)
We got out medals, grabbed some food, checked out the results, talked to some people we've not seen much, then headed out of town for Annika's soccer (which was cancelled with no notice) SIGH.
It was a great run with my girl, I hope she learns to love running! Johnny Miles 5 k 33:02 minutes :)! Holly's First!
