Yet another year of GOTR. I've been helping out as a coach once again - but just "part-time." Sort-of. Some weeks are full-time. :)
The 5K race this year was held in Montrose - a first for me! It was so nice not to have to be gone the entire day for a 5K.
Although Emmy never really ran with the official GOTR during our training, she wanted to do the 5K. So I registered her and she and I ran it together. I held her hand most of the time - too keep her from going too fast AND too slow. :) It was awesome to do it with her. She walked just a few times and for less than a minute each time. Her time was 38 minutes. She's been a little down this week with a cold and I wonder if that affected her somewhat? She was definitely tired, but also willing to keep running and going.
Our whole family was there to cheer us on as we finished. I then dropped off Emmy with the family and ran back to catch up with our last girls. I finally got to them and I helped them pace themselves to a good finish. :)
The 5K is truly the best part of the GOTR season!
