Bunny Hop and 5K

Yesterday there was a 5K and a 1/2 mile bunny hop. Jeff had signed up for the race but isn't here anymore, so Adam was going to run it. Adam started his new job instead. Since the race and shirt was already paid for, Jessica said she'd do it. But since she hasn't run more than a mile in ages, she planned to walk most of it. She's also having back pain from tumbling.

There was a big turn out.

Despite all, she made it in at 34 minutes. But she was in pain : (

The little three ran the 1/2 mile. It was the first race for the twins. When Adam was their age, he was already running 5Ks! But that's because we had 5 acres of land and a running path around the land. Everyone ran 2 laps four times a week. Some ran more to build up for racing. We left there when Jasmine was three though, so she and the twins don't have the racing experience the older ones did. Jessica hasn't run more than a mile since we moved in '04.

They're off!

Kayla was the first of the three in. For some reason, Jasmine gets really tense about races. This is her second race and the second time she froze up when it was time to run. Jessica ran her in.

They gave out little Easter wind up toys to all the runners instead of awards.

Funny, as long as I spent in the military I never enjoyed running. Looks like everyone had great fun though!
