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.

2009 Rock Trot

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.
