First time doing a competitive race since I was in elementary school. I had a ton of fun doing this with my whole family (Dad and I did the 10k together, Mom ran the 5k, two younger sisters walked the 5k).

Dad and I stuck together until the big hill around the 6k mark. We hadn't run together since doing the Strawberry Run in Portage la Prairie when I was 5, so it was a lot of fun. He's fast for 58! We pushed each other, but I definitely had more strength for the hill, and that's where I pulled away. Ended up about 1:30 in front of him.

It was fun having so many people out doing something together, and having musicians and dancers everywhere. I really enjoyed it!
What would you do differently?:

Start closer to the front.

Event comments:

I don't think my time was particularly impressive (it was for me, of course), so I'm surprised by how high up the rankings I finished. Next year I want to beat this time!
