Rock Step Run 2011
Saturday was the big day. I am always so worried that Bianca won't know where to turn back for the mile and get stuck running the 5K or 10K. I just wait to see her turn the corner. This year, she and a friend of hers were right there. They were both running so hard. When it's a friend (and her mom is my good friend), I feel bad wanting my daughter to win.
She was able to stay ahead at the end. She improved her time 23 seconds from last year and finished her mile in 8 minutes and 20 seconds.
Bianca ended up not only with 1st place in the 1-11 category, but also the overall women category. She finally got her 1st place. Now we can move on and start training for the 5K.
I even invested in Bianca's "running" and bought her a pair of Asics for her 5K training after the race on Saturday. This morning, we woke up at 6 am and ran two miles. This girl is a hard worker. She doesn't complain. I know she'll be ready for the 5K we're planning to run in July in St. Louis.
