Two of the girls I teach in primary shared that they had a running club and would be running in a 5k race in May. I told them that if they let me know when and where that I would come and cheer for them. The morning of the race I asked if anyone wanted to go with me and of course everyone did, we got ready and as we were about to get in the car I asked Kaiden and Keith if they would want to run it. Of course they said yes, so they changed into running clothes and we headed off. The race was held at an elementary school in Lexington KY as a fundraiser for a new track.  They both place 2nd in their age divisions! Kaiden with a time of 23:18, he placed 33rd over all and 30th in the males. Keith with a time of 34:51 a personal best, he placed 189th over all and 106th in the males. The 5k had a total of 325 runners the 1 mile fun run bumped that number up to 460 runners, a pretty great turn out for an elementary school fundraiser! We had a great time and look forward to next year! As a side note Keith only wanted to run it if Kevin would run with him so that is why Kevin doesn't have a time!
