Running With the King 5K

Last Saturday Jimmy and Clay ran our local annual Elvis Festival 5K run, called Running With the King.  Olivia was out of town with a friend, and sadly, Julie was sick!  She began running a fever and coughing on Friday morning.  She was so disappointed!  This is the one 5K that she has run every single year since she began running.  I simply chose not to run this race.  Lynn and I ran three miles before the race, and then we watched, cheered, and took a few pictures.

It was so hot!

This is the beginning of the race.

Jimmy and Clay after the race.  Their clothes were soaking wet!

Jimmy set a PR (personal record) in this race!  20:04.  He really, really wants to break 20 minutes in a race.  I know that he will meet that goal soon!

Clay, Sam, and Leah with the King!

Clay with his "trophy" for finishing 1st in his age group--a Polar Bottle with the Elvis Festival logo on the side.  Our family really likes these Polar Bottles!
Jimmy won a Polar Bottle too (2nd place in age group), but I failed to get a picture of him with his.

Next race(s):
June 11--Frog Level 5K (Jimmy, Leah and Me)
June 11--Gibson Guitar 5K (Jimmy, Olivia, Julie, and Clay)
