On Sunday me and Mom and Ben ran the River City Rat Race. It was definitely cool because there were lots of people dressed up in costumes. Another cool thing about that race was that it finished in the Old Fort. My techy favorite thing was that they had a quadercopter drone with a camera videotaping the crowd.
My time was 46:38, which wasn’t as fast as I hoped but was still a HUGE improvement over my previous 5K time of 58 minutes and something.
Another funny thing was there was a Color Guard from the Old Fort doing the Pledge of Allegience before the race and then those guys ran the race in their historic soldier’s uniforms and carried the flag. That had to be heavy!
This was an awesome race and the weather was perfect. The shirts were also pretty cool. The only bad thing was, the pavement hurt my legs because I am used to running on grass and trails from cross country. I am now completely staying on trails!
Halloween update: Here’s my awesome trick-or-treating costume from Friday.
