We spent the night before in Guelph, visiting my parents and it wasn't to much to get the kids up in morning.
We got to the race site and met up with some family and friends and got a spot in the bleachers right at the start/finish. We even met up with one of my cousins and uncle!
It was a small race with 1200 total in 3 distances (10k, 5k, 3k). So after some photo ops we got on the track and waited to take off. The 5k course was pretty simple with 1 hill. By time we hit 2k though I knew it wasn't my race and decided to just get the run in. Hubs and C took off from the start and they both looked amazing when I saw them before I hit the turnaround.
After that I completely lost sight of Hubs and found out that he finished in an amazing 26:38! He blew my PR out of the water when he first goal was to match it.
I came by a couple minutes later for a 29:20
We met up with everyone again after and shared some awesome high fives and race stories

Don't we all look awesome? It was my Uncle, Hubs, Mike, and Chris's first race! and they all did amazing! Even though my race didn't go as planned I was bouncing with excitement for them.
