Athletic Republic Run 2013

We had a great time racing this past Saturday at the Athletic Republic. This was our families second year to participate. It was a lot colder that it was last year, but we were very grateful that it wasn't raining. Shawn, Kaylee and I all had the stomach flu Thursday night so we weren't feeling our best, but we made it through the race and enjoyed relaxing for the rest of the day at home.

 Karolyn and I ran the 1 mile together. She did a fabulous job and beat her time from last year by more than a minute. She finished 20th place overall and finished with a time of 8:14. I was amazed that they had over 325 people in the 1 mile race this year. There were people every where!

 Hiding out of the wind in their "warm spot" while we waited for Shawn and Kolsen to come by.

Kolsen ran his first 5K race and did a fantastic job! He finished 113th overall and 11th in his age group of 12 and under. He was aiming to finish under 30 minutes and blew that time away with a finishing time of 26:46. There were 717 people in the 5K.
