Noah wanted to enter the Cincinnati Rat Race this year as his first 5k where he actually raced. I decided on race day to enter with him. It was warm but rainy for the 5:30 start and pretty much rained the whole time!
Noah finished 2nd in his age group with a 6:46/mile pace and I finished 12th in my age group with a 9:05/mile pace. Those were personal bests for both of us.
At the end I was so tired I could not pose for a picture. I definitely started off way too fast. I guess that’s what happens where there aren’t any pace groups and the distances are not clearly marked!
All in all we had a great time. And we’re both looking forward to next weekend and the Cap City 1/2 marathon for Noah and the Commit to be Fit 5k for me. I’m going to try to replicate those results and see if I can!
