Greg and Suzy-Q waiting for the race to start
Auntie Shauna and Owen goofing off before their race
Saturday morning was a blistery 10 degrees and boy was it cold! Thankfully, Wasilla didn't have any wind to make things any colder. This was our first true winter race and boy is it a whole different experience :) I was at REI yesterday and picked up a Turtle Fur Windtech Maskot Beanie which blocks the wind and covers most of Hannah's face so she is more comfortable running in the cold.
Great race team 5K in 50 States!!!!Owen ran the kids 1 mile race indoors which was nice for the kiddos and the spectators. Auntie Shauna, Owen's faithful running buddy, took a feather off of his necklace for each of the 12 laps to keep track how far he ran.
Suzy-Q and I cheering Owen onBoth Hannah and I got 1st place in our age groups! This was my first time getting 1st in my age group. The race had a raffle and Owen and Hannah both were lucky enough to win a prize.
1st place ladies :)The races and awards ceremony were done at 11:45 so we had to hurry back home to have a bite to eat for lunch and then head back out again to the skiing kick off at 1:30. What a busy day!!!! We are looking forward to starting skiing next Monday and the Jingle Bell 5K in a couple weeks.
