Hannah and Owen checking out the worm they foundWe had a much warmer day for the race today. It was sunny and about 45 degrees. Auntie Jennie got back from Fairbanks last night and was rather tired :) The Home Run was a much smaller race and the 5K had a total of about 25 people.
Hitting her strideIt was much hard to be motivated to run fast because there were not as many people around cheering them on. Hannah and Jennie were following a guy in a yellow shirt for most of the race. They passed him at one point, but he finished just ahead of them at the end. Hannah even fell two times because leaves were covering roots in the trail, but she hopped up and kept running. What a strong girl! Two other people came up to Hannah at the end of the race and said that she was their pace setter. They tried their hardest to keep up with her, but she was too fast! Hannah and Jennie finished in 33:38.
We will run 3 5K races this week! Bonny Sosa Race #6 on Tuesday and Pumpkins in the Park in Chicago...here we come!!
