Poky 5K

This past Saturday Kyle and our neighbor Mel ran the Pocahontas 5K Against Congenital Heart Defects. Due to various reasons, I decided not to run and be their “race cheerleader”!

Pre-race…feeling good! This was Mel’s first race ever.DSC07547 

Kyle and his biggest fan!!DSC07548

Mom B and I snuck out early before they started so we could make sure to see them a few times throughout the race! She was a great chauffeur.

Kyle and Mel just making the first turn. Early in the race and still feeling great!DSC07549 
Kyle ran about the first mile with Mel to help her get going and then he took off! Here he is finishing mile 2. I was standing with Mom & Dad B and Grandpa & Grandma DeWall! He took the time to veer off the path & give us all high 5’s!DSC07551 
Mel was just a few minutes behind Kyle moving right along!DSC07552

Mom B and I were able to find Kyle one more time!! I think he was giving all he had at this point and was in quite a bit of pain, but pushing through to finish strong!DSC07553

And here is my man finishing strong with a new PR for him, 26:15!! Great job Babe!!DSC07554

He was a tired boy afterwards! ;) Water & a seat in the grass was just what he needed after giving his all!DSC07555

A few minutes later Mel finished her first ever race with a time around 29:30. Great job Mel! Kyle placed 2nd in his age division and Mel placed 3rd! Way to go guys!DSC07560
