Today was the 32nd Annual Ice Breaker Road Race. Of course, this being our first spring here, it was our 1st. There were three separate races, the 5-mile, 3-mile and the 1-mile. I signed us up for the 1-mile so we would all be able to run it together.
William was ready to go, so once the starter gun went off, he was gone. Rob shot me a look of guess-I-better-stay-with-this-crazy-kid, and off he went to follow him. I stayed with the twins and we had a great run. They both ran the whole mile. I was so incredibly proud of them.
As we crossed the finish line, the announcer called out our names, which was pretty cool. I could see Rob and William waiting for us not too far ahead. The twins and I ran the mile in 12 minutes, not bad at all considering I wasn’t sure if they were going to be able to run the whole thing. Rob and William finished in 8 minutes. Pretty impressive.
We finished with a medal and a sack lunch. The atmosphere was so energized and we all had a great time. The kids are already talking about running the 3-mile next year. Sounds good to me.
