Olivia and Julie each won 1st place in their age divisions, and Clay finished 4th place in his division. I ran with Jimmy's cousin, Stacee. This was her first 10K (she has completed 2 half-marathons and a few 5Ks, but not a 10K until yesterday.) Her goal was to break 1 hour, and we did that! Our official time was 59:13. I throughly enjoyed running this race. I gabbed with Stacee the whole time, and the race just flew by!
I listed everyone's time in the left sidebar.
Several of my friends' (Kelly and Lynn, Emily, Kim, and Penny) children ran the 2K race which was held during the 10k. Leah ran this race with my Daddy. He pushed Sam in the stroller while he ran beside Leah. She did great! She happily reported that she walked only 3 times, and this was the farthest that she has ever run (a 2K is a little more than a mile).
The weather was very rainy, wet, and even stormy during the race. We witnessed multiple flashes of lightning, and the bottom literally fell out when we had over 1 mile left. We were all drenched!

Thankfully my parents are always willing to watch Leah and Sam for me so that I can run!
