Justin and I ran the Kelly Canyon Half Marathon and Kami and Katelyn ran the Ririe Days 5K...great family running day. We left home around 5:30am to get up to the start. The ladies dropped us off and headed to Ririe for their race (where all the races end).
Gray was there so I was running for second place (he ran 1:14 and set a new course record...turn 30 already and slow down!). We took off fast (Justin was in front of us at the half mile mark!). Fast down hill start...first three miles in 4:54, 5:10, 5:39. Then some uphill/downhill before 1 mile of dirt road. At mile 6 we get back on the flats of the country roads into Ririe. This is where Gray really took off from me. My hammy/glute started talking to me at mile 4, got better then started to be loud around mile 10 and yell at mile 12. Finished slow, but overall happy with the result considering my recovery on this off year. 2nd overall in 1:18:25 for my slowest race here, but hope to be faster next week.
Justin and Isaac missed the turn at mile 7 and ran an extra 2 miles out before turning around. Ended up with about 16 miles for the day...a long training run for next week!
Katelyn ran a new PR and Kami ran strong and improved from the race earlier in the month. Overall a fun day.
Spent the afternoon at the Melaleuca picnic and considering my "mid life crisis" potential purchase...still thinking about it but very tempted right now...not practical but a dream!
