Jessie actually just started running a few months ago. She was doing a couch-to-5k training program and we had been bothering her about signing up for a race with us. Finally, we convinced her to run not just a 5k, but to double it & run the 10k with us!
Chris and I both wanted to beat our times from the Peachtree and Jessie just wanted to run the whole thing! We all accomplished our goals. Chris did the Peachtree in 51:58 and completed this one in 45:18; I did the Peachtree in 1:16:45 and I completed this on in 1:10:36; Jessie had never ran a race before and had an awesome time of 1:20:37!
If my math is correct, Chris and I both shaved 6 minutes off our time.. so that means we both shortened our time by a minute per mile! Not too shabby 🙂
This running thing is becoming quite addictive and I’m looking for my next race already (I’m thinking this one–the 15k).
Needless to say, I think we definitely earned our Thanksgiving meal this year!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.
