Salem Witches 5K Race & Mile Kid’s Run

October 26, 2013

Here at the high school, the cross country team put on a Halloween 5K community fun run. We had a good turn out this year. I ran it this time with my girls. I usually work the finish line but we had enough helpers that I was able to help Corom this year and push the girls. I had a blast but it was tough!!!

There was one part in the race that had a steep hill… I was a little ahead of Corom and Mike going into the hill. I got to a point that I had to walk pushing all 4 kids and then 10 sec later, I couldn’t push anymore (it was so steep). I think Corom and Mike stayed back on purpose to have a good laugh. Well next thing I knew I had a few people helping me (and we still had to walk even with 4 of us). It was quite the sight…


I couldn’t stop laughing… The rest was a piece of cake (after that hill). I took off with the girls and we made sure Corom and Mike wouldn’t catch up. (The girls kept yelling for me to go faster…) the girls and I finished in 23:58 for a 5k. It was quite the workout and my arms are tired!

Corom and Mike are the above picture and Z our Foriegn Exchange student is in the picture below. She did really well and had fun…

These 3 were our overall female winners… Mac was 1st, Josse was 2nd and Amber was 3rd… I tried to catch them (I would have hit them with my stroller… I am totally joking- I run with these ladies on a regular basis.)

My kids ran in the mile race… They, too, did really well! The 2 older ones ran the entire way and the other 2 ran and walked. None of them had to be carried this year. The high school kids helped a lot!!!
