The 5k started with confetti raining down over the racers. Carter and Elise both loved the confetti and had so much fun playing with it as everyone else ran the race. Jeremy told me the night before that he was planning on just running the race as an easy recovery run coming back from the marathon. Thomas had just run the half so I figured he'd recover a little better than Jeremy and expected him to finish before Jeremy. While we watched for everyone to finish, Elise was walking with her hands in her pockets and fell so her face bounced off the ground. It took quite a while to get her calmed down after that. I was shocked to see Jeremy coming up to the finish at about 21 minutes. I guess his easy paced run was a little bit faster than what I consider easy! He finished in 22:19 which put him 61st out of 1,309 overall and 8th out of 47 in his age group. Thomas finished next in 24:02 which put him 103rd overall and 5th of 47 in his age group. Dad finished in 24:40 which was 126th overall and 3rd out of 32 in his age group. Mom finished in 35:01, 685th overall and 10th of 27 in her age group. Everyone seemed to enjoy the race. Carter and Elise also enjoyed cheering everyone on.
