I QUICKLY said, " I can't run at this pace for long, so you go ahead!!! I'll run by myself!"
So, Nathan took off, and that was the last I saw of him until I crossed the finish line.
The rest of the race I struggled. It was HOT, and most of it was going up hill. I had been up all night because Wyatt was sick, so I was running on little sleep. Yes, I had I FUN, but it was probably my most difficult race. I ended up finishing the race at 34:54, although the timers said 33:54 when I crossed the finish line. They said they had a glitch in the timers, so they added a minute to each of our times! Nothing is more disappointing than hearing someone tell you to ADD a minute to your time when you feel like you are on the verge of having a heat stroke!!! LOL!!!Nathan finished in 24:44, but he had to take the time of 25:44 because of the glitch. Go, NATHAN!!! I'm SO proud of you!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention the tot trot race!!! While we were running, Nolan, Brandon,and Weston ran in the tot trot. Nolan came in first, and Weston took second place. Each of them won a gift certificate to Chili's!
|Our Dad and Nolan decided not to run this time, so it was the three of us!|
|Nathan receiving his prize for first place!!|
