Today we were a couple of heathens and skipped church and ran another 5K in Trinity River Park. It was our second 5K. Well, other than this one here. But it was the second one that we were able to actually participate in.
The 5K was named the Honored Hero Run and it benefitted children with blood cancers.
As it seems with most 5K’s or any other organized runs for that matter, we received a t-shirt to wear while running. This year the logo on the t-shirts and awards were designed by a couple of children who are currently patients with blood cancer. I thought it was kinda cool that the logos are designed by the kids that are benefitting from the run.
The run started at 8 am and it was perfect weather for running. It was cool, a little humid, with a light breeze. We ran along the Trinity River. The fresh air and the scenery was great.
Laura Ann finally was able to run in a 1K fun run. She did pretty well and was able to run about half the way. She received a medal for finishing and my wife and I were so proud of her. She was pretty proud of herself too.
Kristine and I ran together just like we did last time. Once again, Kristine took second place in her age group and received a pretty cool trophy. I’m so proud of where she’s come from. I think her and I running together is one of the funnest things her and I have ever done as a couple since we’ve been married.
It’s still so hard to believe that she runs toward the top of her age group in speed. Sure, when you look at the results of other races and distances around the area, there are many that are much faster, but she certainly is in the top 10 percent of women aged 40-44.
May the LORD continue to bless us with physical strength and if He’s willing I hope we can only get better, because my plans are for a 10K next time!
