Over Memorial Day weekend, I participated in the 2018 Ogden 5K. My daughter-in-law works for the Health Plan, and since they and Bordas and Bordas sponsored this year, we thought it would be fun to participate together. We decided to take my youngest two grandchildren and took turns pushing them in a double stroller, so it wasn’t a race I was going to place in, but I still had fun. Pushing those two was a workout in and of itself so I got my money’s worth. The children enjoyed it too, so that’s all that really mattered.
After the race, they had a band playing by the civic center. My granddaughter danced and danced. She’s a 4-year-old, so it was really cute. My grandson just bounced up and down on my lap, which is what he likes to do anyway. We also got a wet towel and a popsicle. That was a really good combination to cool off with, and I enjoyed both immensely. Everyone left happy.
All-in-all it was a very nice race, and everyone had a good time. Now if I can just keep up with the exercising, I’ll be running in the next race. I do plan on participating in a few more races this summer. Someday I would like to run a half marathon, but it won’t be until I have trained for at least a year. Stay tuned!
