Race Report: 2009 Rock Trot
For the third year in a row, we started our Thanksgiving Day by running a family 5k down in Castle Rock. It’s turning into a great tradition. The race is laid back, but organized well. It’s fun for the kids to get the matching T-shirts.
Prior years have been cold and dreary – not today! Beautiful and warm. It seems the crowds were out in record number, raising a lot of money for a good cause. The course was mostly on a bike path, so I didn’t get much running in trying to navigate through the crowds pushing Jessica in the stroller. With a little less than a mile to go, the course opened up and we were able to get up to speed. Then I let Jessica get out and run the rest of the way to the finish – she did great!
Everyone did great and had fun. Then we stuffed ourselves with a wonderful meal.
