Leesburg 5K

Way late in posting this recap because the end of summer and the start of school got busy so here's a quick mostly photo recap.  We hadn't done a family race in a while so we decided to head over to Leesburg to do the 5K.  JD and I had done the 20K 2 years ago, and we enjoyed the course so we thought the kids might like the 5K.  The 5K course isn't actually that great since you barely get to run on the W&OD, and it's mostly through random neighborhoods in Leesburg.  It was still a well organized race by PR as always, and we got lucky with some cool weather so it turned out to be a fun morning.

I ran with Nicolas.  He did a great job and got another sub-30 finish (29:29).  He really killed the last hill to the finish line. Zach ran with JD and almost cracked 28 minutes, but just missed finishing with a 28:01.  No one was really out to PR so they were really happy with their times especially since the course was not very flat for a 5K.

Also of note this summer, both of my guys PR'd the mile at summer track with Nic at 7:44 and Zach at 7:43.  We also took down the fun family relay!
