It was a warm, muggy morning, so our times were not our best...but we both won the overall male and female awards! Tony won the whole thing! Here he is getting ready to cross the finish line!
We forgot to take a picture of the two of us after the race, but here are our medals. We were super sweaty...so maybe we're not too upset that we didn't get a pic!
Tony ran 19:55 (6:25 per mile), 1st overall
Beth ran 21:59 (7:05 per mile), 5th overall, 1st female
We were super impressed with how well they organized the race! It probably helped that one of my teaching partners organized it and she's a runner too. :) There were plenty of waters, bananas, and bagels at the finish even after the fun run went first. There was one water station and volunteers at every turn. They had a TV screen showing the results live as they were coming in. It was also cool to see so many kids getting up early on a Saturday morning to go run. I'm sure a lot of them had never done a 5K before, so that was really neat. We were so glad we did this race...it's a small race, but we have a connection to the school and know it will make a difference for the kids and their fundraising efforts. Maybe next year we can get Cole to do the one mile fun run. He's already been playing "race" around the house and winning our medals when he finishes.
