Sunday, May 1st
The time came for our school's run club to participate in the main event! This was the race we had all been training for. We met at 7:30 in the morning for a 7:50am start time. Emma was set to run with her teacher and another little girl, and Isaac and I were run buddies. He'd been running about a 10mile pace in practice with the fast group. I'd been running a few groups slower but my body was itching to run faster so it was going to be interested. I was there to help pace Isaac at the start and then encourage him as it got harder toward the end.
It was so fun to get to do this with them. We picked up our race packets after soccer on Saturday and then we drove the race course so Emma and Isaac could see where we were going to be running (always a good idea to do as a race participant).
