My mom ran with me when she was pregnant with me and so I must've caught the bug! I've been running with Racecats for a couple years now and I really like it. I'm getting pretty fast too. I need to work on consistent running, because I have big dreams, but kind of want to get there without working for it! (my mom might be typing this for me...and if I discovered she told everyone my name was Fartlek I might dis-own her!)

I'm in 3rd grade this year and training with Racecats Elite program. If you are in elementary or middle school, you should join us!

Racecats Monday Meet!

Adam ran the 2K with his elementary school (Summit Academy) in 9:11 and finished right with a teammate! It was fun to watch them working together and pushing each other. 

Then he did the 3K with the Elites. A great time and he felt good about his effort. 

Afterward we FROZE. It was crazy cold and so we stopped to get egg-drop soup on the way home :)

Did fun games with mom's elementary team for recovery.

Then did Elite practice. Lots of hard work!

I didn't do any running, but spent the morning walking around Draper on a field trip with my mom for school. 

Then I worked hard in the yard the rest of the weekend ripping out sod and putting new sod back in!

Did the Blackridge Racecats trail loop with Elite, plus a warm-up and cool down. It was a good run!

Adam ran the U5K, because I was working and he LOVES the U!! So he wanted the medal and the t-shirt. Plus, I figured it would be a good race practice for him. 

He met Tom Slick and saw his friend Sharva there as well. He had a great time on the 5K (only 10 seconds or so from a PR) and it was a much more difficult course. Because his PR is at DesNews 5K. When I told him that at the finish he said "mom, it was mostly downhill! It was easy." ha! I know they ran from the social work building up to the Huntsman center and THAT is a tough hill! Plus it was a loop and they went to President's circle as well. But, I'm glad he thinks it was easy! 

He then ran the kids 1K and it was as stacked as the 5K with having 12-14 year olds to compete against both places, he came in 4-6 in the kids race. But, he loved the experience and actually won the BIG raffle prize! But, we didn't let him claim it. So he got a girls t-shirt that none of the girls in this family will fit into :P 

I'm just glad he had a good time and enjoys running so much!
