Freedom Run 15

Craig and I did the Freedom Run 10K this year.  It was my 3rd year to do the freedom run, although I've always done the 5K, so my first 10K.  It was Craig's first year to do the freedom run.  I'm so glad we do this together now, it's so much fun.  He's always a good bit ahead of me even in training but it's still lots of fun.  One of our good friends came out to support us and to keep an eye on the girls.  I love this race, and love that it supports veterans.

My goal was to complete the 6.2 miles in 60 minutes.  I finished at 58:38 and was completely shocked and thrilled.  I had a 9:28 pace and finished 16 in my age group.  Don't remember how many there were in my age group, but it was around 30.

Craig's goal was to complete the 6.2 miles in just under 58 minutes.  He finished at 51:21 and was completely shocked and happy!  He had an 8:17 pace and finished 8 in his age group.  I have no idea how many were in his age group, but he did awesome.

The weather was fantastic.  It was like 65 that morning or cooler.  It was cloudy, which was actually nice.

Now we are training for a half marathon to do in the fall Lord willing.
