I've got a backlog of posts I've put off writing that I really need to get done now that the year is ending. First up, the Be Brave, Be Thankful race report. The girls have been doing a 1 mile kids fun run each December for a while now. In early November, I found out Meredith at SwimBikeMom was organizing a "5K, 10K, anyK" virtual run to raise money for ALS research in honor of Andrea Peet, a fellow triathlete. After the year we've had, I figured we were due for some medals that reminded us to be brave and be thankful, and it was for a very good cause too. So I asked the girls if they'd rather do this race or the one they usually do and explained how it would work and they all chose this one.
The run was to take place over Thanksgiving weekend, so the day after Thanksgiving, we all loaded up in the car and drove to the track. Secora was running 1 mile, Sedona was running 2 miles and Sierra and I were running 5k. The track allowed us to all go at our own pace and grab water when needed.
We mailed in our results and several days later we got our t-shirts and medals in the mail!
