Race: Santa Hustle 5K (3.107 Miles) 29:01:00, Place in age division: 4

I was supposed to run a half-marathon, but that race was canceled due to extreme weather conditions. Race promoters downgraded all of us to the 5K. I ran with my son to keep me at a slow pace to ensure that I did not furhter damage my sore hamstring.  I experienced zero pain during the run! In fact, my son had to continuously slow me down. I felt so alive and free. I had no idea how much I had missed running. This was the BEST runner high since qualifying for Boston.
