We started just a few minutes late because they were getting one of the last road closures taken care of, but it was just a few minutes.
The first mile was very smooth - it was pretty fast and forgiving with a few short uphills. My legs felt way better than I thought they would after last week. As I came up towards mile 2, you hit a long gradual uphill and a few turns that slowed down my pace bit in the final mile, but I was totally ok with that.
After a few different health issues the past year, dad has been joining us a little less frequently, but this is one that he really wanted to do to help support the schools and community. He did so great out there and I am so proud of him!
