Race Log: Deck the Trails 3 Miler

Deck the Trails is quickly becoming a tradition for our family. This year was the first time that Owen and Eli participated too and they loved it! I had taken them for a few training runs and knew they were capable of the distance, so I took Owen and Charlie took Eli and we were off! The course is a 3 mile trail run around soccer fields, baseball fields and through the woods in Coppell. It was a perfect morning for a run in December - shorts and long sleeves were perfect. Eli finished in 31:30 and Owen finished in 31:40, which was 12th and 13th place in their age group out of 24 kids. Their times actually beat the first place kid from last years race, so that shows how much more competitive it was this year! My mom and dad happened to be visiting too, so that made their first race extra special. They had so much fun and are already asking about when they can run their next race : )
