LVTC Low Key 5k/2M

As I was laying in bed this morning around 6am, I started to question if I was going to participate in the Las Vegas Track Club's low key 5k race this morning.  It was so cold outside!  But... I thought to myself... I better run now because I probably won't run later.  Fine.  I'll go.  I got ready and headed out the door. 

First stop: Albertsons.  I needed a couple of bananas.  [Yep, we already finished off all 6 lbs of bananas I purchased last week].  Next stop: 7-11.  I need coffee.  I arrived at Bunker Family Park and signed up for the 5k.  I ran into Teri (remember from last weekend's race).  We chatted for a few minutes before the race, then it was time to head to the start line.

I set a goal to sub-30:00 for this race.  I tried really hard... but finished in 30:10.  I still managed to sub-10:00 min/mile.  I stuck around for the awards ceremony to see where I ranked.
I tried taking a picture of myself a million times... and this is as good as it gets!

I managed to come in 2nd place in my age/gender group... out of 3!  It's still 2nd place!

Once I got home, I told my daughter to get ready to run.  She was so excited!  My older son decided to join us as well.  Here are some pictures I took:

Look at that form!

He's flying!

Final results: .43 miles/7:14 minutes

I always enjoy running with my kiddos!
