Sherman Day 5K

This morning our family (except for Sam) all ran the 4th annual Sherman Day 5K.  We have run this race every year, and it is always a fun local race.  This year, 101 runners participated.  Everyone in our family had a super race!  It was Leah's second 5K, and she beat her previous time by 3 minutes!  She told me that she didn't want to walk except at the water stop at the halfway point, and that is exactly what she did.

Avery and Leah after the race. 
This was Avery's first 5K, and she did great!

Jimmy ran a PR!  (personal record)
He has been trying to break 20 minutes in a 5K for some time now.  Today, he did!  If you look at the printout above from the race clock, you will see his time in place 3.......


Way to go Jimmy!  We are all so happy for him, and I think all of the  Spartan spectators rejoiced with him as he crossed the finish line!  I would have loved to see him meet this goal, but Leah and I were way behind!

Olivia, Julie, and Clay after the race

Clay ran a PR too!
He beat his previous time by one second!  Julie and Olivia were both very pleased with their times.  They both ran faster than they have in a while, and they were so happy!  Clay won 1st in his division, Julie won 2nd place overall female, and Olivia won 1st in her division.

I put everyone's finish time in the left sidebar under Race Results.


  1. I love reading your race results! As a new 5K runner, I find them very inspiring!

  2. Way to go Jimmy! Roan, I tried sending you a long email, hit sed 4 or 5 times, but it didn't look like anything happened. I can't find it in sent or drafts. I'll take the time to rewrite it tomorrow. Thank you for getting back to me.
