Every year since 2005, Nikayla and I have been running the Mother’s Day 5k. Last year we ran it in Edmonton, this year we were back in Calgary. My running had not been going well this year and for this event health issues or not, I would be there no matter the pace or finish time. Being the sweetheart that she is she decided to slow her pace and do a run walk with me.
We had a fun time even if it was slower then usual. It was a crowded event, one of the largest in Calgary’s history. We had never done the event at the new location – the Chinook Mall. I didn’t think I would like that it was moved to that location but it was great. I mostly got photos of Nikayla but she took the ones of me with the police officers and bonus a fireman…lol.
Despite being slow we were far from last. We both crossed the line at 1:01::48 chip time and 1:05:31 gun time.
