We started Thanksgiving with Hillstriders’ 5K. Hillstriders raised $2,000 and a truck load of food for the Crystal Lake Food Pantry. It was about 20 degrees warmer this year than last year, which was ideal racing conditions. I brought along my entire family, including H who completed his first 5K! It’s hard to write a race report for a 5K. The race is over so quickly. My goal was under 23 minutes. I did the last 5K of the Hot Chocolate 15K in 23:28, so I felt my goal was doable. The race was pretty consistent.
My unofficial time was 22:20! Another race, another personal record!
I went back to find my sister and brother-in-law and ran a little bit with them. Then I found H and ran in with him, but I forgot to take a picture! So mad.
H went back to sit in the car, because he was cold, but the rest of us went to cheer on my parents. This picture makes me laugh so hard.
