This is not what I would call a long distance race, but it is sentimental. I did the 7 miler and my darling daughter ran in her first 5K race! My friend, Cheryl, ran with her since her training had been slim.
DD is so cute . . . she actually hates running but wants to be like her mom (and got carried away with the excitement of registering and getting ready for a race). Come to think of it, that's exactly like her mom!

Cheryl and Steve: Steve did the 1 mile walk due to an injury.
Spectators: Daddy, DS, Mom Mom, DD, Cousin 1, and Cousin 2 came to cheer us on!

The 5K participants (DD and Cheryl) started before the 7 Mile race. Here I am waiting at the Start with my favorite little man:
Wondering if my knee will hold up for this one . . .
And, we're off!
I actually had very little trouble with my knee for this race. It was a fun day with family and friends!
DD caught me crossing the finish line!
And the real star of the show . . . my 5King little girl. You go, girl! She did it, and has a red face to prove it!
