LA Bridge Run 5k

This morning the boys and I ran the 3rd and final race in this year's Greater LA Triple Crown 5k Series. I was feeling a bit 'under the weather', but decided to run/walk the race anyway because I wanted to finish out the series, and because it's such a pretty course which crosses 3 bridges that connect the cities of Auburn and Lewiston, Maine. My younger son stayed with me, and helped me to smile throughout a tough race - he also motivated me to a 37+ minute finish, which was way better than I was expecting! (You might also note that suddenly he's taller than me!!)
My older son ran a slower race than he would have liked, but he ran with a cross-country buddy and they had a great time enjoying the course together. Both of my boys proved that they are learning the lessons I am trying to teach them - sometimes running races is more about the people than the clock. However, he still placed 5th for his age group, and his consistency over the 3-race series paid off. He WON the Triple Crown Trophy for his age group! (Now, we just need to find the time to get back to the city and pick it up!)
