Race morning was beautiful and I was scheduled to do 16 for the marathon training so I ran 3 before the start of the race. I thought about though and after finishing the 10 miler decided that was enough. I ran the race part in 1:31:49 which was a good time for me being I had just finished my first month of running. Aly did great on her 8k in 45:39, Brooke also did awesome her time was 43:28 and Spencer my football player finished the race in an hour so we had a great day.
Spencer would for sure give me a tough race any time he put his mind to it as he did Brissy Ridge (a tough 2.4m single track trail on Paris mountain) in 25 minutes, I have never come close to that time yet. But he has his mind on football and his coach tells him that speed is more important than being able to run 5 miles. I am trying to convince them that to wear the other team out in the 4th quarter the endurance gained from some distance runs will surely payoff.
Well it is great to have this race done and we will continue training for the next one. Reedy River 10k and 5k an awesome race in downtown Greenville. Run for many years. In fact about 15 years ago I ran this race once, don't remember my time just know it kicked my butt back then. So it should be interesting.
