They had backpacked 8 miles in the 24 hours before. It was gray and clammy and we'd rather have stayed in bed. But we did it anyway.
This was Duncan's first 5K ever and our first of the spring. He did incredible! He just starting running a month ago and actually hasn't gone more than a mile, but he did the whole 3.1 miles with a smile on his face. The sun never did come out, but we didn't mind. We met several friends from our church at the finish line (the shirts are from our church), high fived each other, grabbed some donut holes, and headed home by 9:25 a.m.
For Randy and me, this is our second year doing the Resurrection Run. We love the cause—Family Promise—which provides housing, job skills, and financial training for homeless families in our area. Great way to start Easter weekend!
