This year's Turkey Day 5K featured a couple firsts in our family. Both Megan & Zoe ran it as their first 5K. We've been on several family training runs in the last month or so and they were ready to roll when the race finally arrived.
We also had my parents visiting for the holiday and they agreed to walk it as their first ever race!

|The masses. They had a record turn-out this year.
|Oh yeah, Zoe's looking strong and in charge close to the halfway point.
Here's how the miles played out (11:55, 10:45, 10:15). Zoe was working it hard!
|Guess who dumped a cup of cold water on her head at the aid station?
|Hustling to a 34:23 finish! So much for the 36 minute goal!
|The tired, but happy runners.
|Without much time to spare, we wrapped back around and met up with my folks to join them crossing their first ever finish line. They're very fast walkers!
I just learned my parents signed up for a Jingle Mingle 5K race in their hometown...next weekend! Oh boy, it looks like it's only just begun!
