Pre race goofing around
The sun was shining and we could even feel a bit of warmth from it...yay for spring!!!! Everyone waited inside until the very last minute, and the race people had to tell everyone it was time to head to the start line. We walked out as a group, had a brief introduction to the course, and we were off!
Grandma, Suzy-Q and Owen hanging out inside waiting for Hannah and Jennie to come back :)
This race reminded us of the Jingle Bell 5K we did back in December as we were running on a lot of snow. Hannah and I were huffing and puffing just 10 minutes after beginning our run. When we reached the 2 mile mark, I realized the race had been shortened due poor trail conditions and now was not a 5K! We crossed the finish line in 25:15 and the race ended up being 2.16 miles, not bad for a snow-covered trail. Hannah was the only kiddo running this race and many people cheered her on as we ran. We are looking forward to running the UAA Spring Break Up run on April 9th!
Coming into the finish line
