Mother's Day at Bear Mountain

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there.  You are all awesome!

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

  3. Too funny ! our tradition is to run a 'mothers day 5 k'.... just me and my daughter. We love it, (though I was much slower this year after a 4 hr run on Sat). Nice to see your family joining in on your love of running.

  4. Great stuff man,
    The kids look like they had a blast.
    Thanks again for dinner and your hospitality
    After being on the 50m course you definitely made the right call to not run with an injury.
