Fossil 5K

Today was a nasty rainy day to run a race!  This was Hannah's first cross-country 5k and discovered Auntie and Hannah need to do more hill training.  After a potty break in the most disgusting port-a-potty ever, Hannah and Jennie lined up and took off to set her next PR (personal record).  The goal was to beat 36 minutes.  Hannah slipped and fell while running, but jumped up and kept running like a little champ!  At 24 minutes into the race, Hannah and Auntie ran into a bull moose.  They walked behind it for 8 minutes with about 15 other racers before it decided to get off the trail.  A 4 and 6 year old brother and sister were the people to beat for this race.  Hannah finished in 41:32, although she would have finished in 36 minutes had it not been for the moose.  Our next race is the Big Wild Life 5K on August 15th and will keep 36 minutes as the goal.
