This morning my family went to Bear Mountain including my parents, brother and sister-in-law for the TNF 5k. Some of us ran and some watched. It was a beautiful morning for us all to be together for a fun event on a well deserved day of recognition.
Every distance of the the Bear Mountain race series is tough. The 5k is technical and has 1,056 feet of elevation change (not bad for a shorty).
Tani kicked some serious butt finishing 9 minutes faster than last year (pretty sick improvement for a 5k). Plus she crossed the finish line with Isla in her arms capping off a perfect run.

Jared our oldest son (12) was amazing, besting about 70% of the field coming in at 34:59. I love the gasp as he is finishing.

Kyle at 9 years old was simply incredible. I ran/paced him and he did everything I said while having a blast. He posed a question for me and the others around us with about 1/2 mile to go. "Dad"...."Yes Kyle". "I don't understand how people sweat!" LOL. Gasping and tired and that's what he came up with. By the way 39:28.

Gotta love these family days. Thats what it's all about. Peace
