The race started at 10AM at Ta Ha Zouka park. It was sponsored by the YMCA. The top male and female finishers win a turkey! I did a 1.5 warm up run on my treadmill at home, and then we headed out.

The route is an out and back. My goal was to run fast to stay warm. I finished second place female (just missed that turkey!)
I was EXTREMELY proud of Ben for running his first 5K! Without training of course. He will be the first to tell you, it was a one and done deal. He finished in 29 minutes!
