Children's Mansion 5K

Saturday morning our family ran the 3rd annual Children's Mansion 5K. This race improves every year. The course was certified and utilized chip timing. This is the first race that all 5 of us have run in a long time. Everyone did very well for the first 5K of the season! Clay did his personal best....he took 40 seconds off his previous best 5K time. Way to go Clay! He won 1st place in the males 14 and under. Olivia won 1st place in her age division and so did Jimmy! (And just so you did I! My friend Dorothy ran with me--she really helps me push myself. She is in my age group, and she crossed the finish line before me, but she won 1st place female masters) Julie won 2nd place overall female. Our own cross country coach won 1st place overall female! Several other Spartans (our homeschool cross country team) participated, and everyone had a great time.
