My sister-in-law Becky ran with me in the 5k. She and her husband are both training for a half marathon in a few weeks. It was very sweet of her to run with me since on her own she's fast enough that she would've had a good chance of winning in her age group. Her husband (my brother-in-law) also ran the 5k and came in 3rd in his age group!

This race seemed extremely long to me possibly because I wasn't familiar with the area but I really liked running with Becky. She was very encouraging and motivating throughout.
I know I ran a little faster with her beside me and I came in at 36:15. That's 1:30 faster than my first run! For folks who have been running for a while or are just naturally fast, that's still very slow, but I am just grateful that I've been able to do this!
All three of us after the run.
The kids participated in a 1 mile run that took place a little later in the morning. They were so cute and did a great job!

Berry College has a beautiful campus and wonderful old buildings. It was a great place to run and hang out with family!
