We the Runners - 5K and 10K - 2016


It seems appropriate to run a road race on July 4th.  What a pleasure it was to have Joshua and Gabrielle join us for this activity.  Joshua and Gabrielle ran the 5K while Debra and I took on the 10K.  Alexis, Gabrielle and I ran this race back in 2013 and it was nice to revisit this well organized race; along with participation from Debra and Joshua.  Gabrielle and Joshua ran together and kept each other motivated through the run.

Joshua's 5K Race Results:
Joshua's field was highly competitive as these numbers indicate.  I think he did very well for a young man who doesn't run on a regular basis.


Gabrielle's 5K Race Results:
Gabrielle missed the podium by one place.  Like Joshua, I am impressed with her showing given that she doesn't run regularly.


Debra's 10K Race Results:
This was Debra's first 10K race.  I am continually impressed by Debra's drive for road races and impressed at her showing at this race given our slack in training leading up to this race.


Jason's (my) 10K Race Results:
I achieved a PR!  This is the first race that I got dead last in my age division.  In all honesty, I ran poorly because of my weight gain and poor training leading up to the race.  The hot and humid condition on the course didn't help.


On a positive note, I wasn't last for the entire field:
